Evergreen Pivot Card

Pop it Ups

Happy Christmas Rudy

November 28, 2015

Hi its Caz here with another card from Karen Burniston’s amazing Pop it Ups range.  With so many dies to choose from and me not even starting my Christmas cards yet I thought I would get started with a Christmas card.  With so many fun dies across the various sets you can enjoy making your own little scene.

Happy Christmas Rudy

Here on the front you can see I have used the Evergreen Pivot Card and Rudy the Reindeer and some presents from the Evergreen Pivot set and the Outdoor Edges too.  To create the glittered outdoor edges I used the wide Elizabeth Crafts tape on the cardstock before I die cut, removed the tape and sprinkled Elizabeth Crafts Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter over the adhesive, polishing in well with my fingers.

The inside showcases the gorgeous trees from the Evergreen Pivot Card die and I have mixed words from the Happy Birthday Pop Up die and the Merry Christmas Pop Up Die.  For added decoration I added the scrolls and hearts from the Merry Christmas set.  There are so many great decorator dies included in these sets that you’ll find yourself mixing and matching once you own them.

I made an inside cover of the dark blue paper before I cut the trees, I taped in place when cutting with temporary tape, cut and then stuck the blue down inside of the card, before this I snipped the trees out of the blue paper I left the trees white.  I die cut all the trees I needed from green card and run  through after cutting with embossing mat so it picked the embossed detail.  To highlight the embossed details I used a sponge dauber with a white ink pad.

All of the trees were decorated with the Elizabeth Crafts Glitter Dots.

Deck the Halls Chilly Gift Card Accordion

November 14, 2015

Hi!  It’s Fran Sabad and I’m excited to share with you a cute idea using Karen Burniston’s Gift Card Accordion with Chilly the Penguin.

Here is the card in the closed position:

PIU Gift Hard Holder 02 open

And here it is opened up:

PIU GHC 02 open


  1. Use the Gift Card Accordion Die cut to cut the following pieces:
    1. (2) full pages from sturdy red cardstock
    2. (2) pieces from patterned paper, using the paper over the inner rectangle only. Trim to just the rectangles and glue the patterned paper rectangles over the red cardstock pages, taking care to line up the tuck slots on Page 2 perfectly to be able to add a gift card later.
  2. Use the companion Flourish Gift Frame die set to die cut 3 white Flourish Frames. Adhere the frames to the pages, including one for the front of the album when closed.
  3. Assemble the Gift Card Accordion according to the package directions or by watching Karen’s assembly video here: Gift Card Accordion
  4. Die cut Chilly the Penguin using white, black and orange cardstock and assemble him.  Make slits between his body and arms.  Using gold thread, wrap Chilly as shown.EDC Nov 14 detail 2EDC Nov 14 detail
  5. Die cut the string of Christmas lights from the Holiday House die set four times (1 set each in red, blue, green and yellow) and trim into individual bulbs. For the bulbs that are adhered to Chilly, simply glue them over the thread. For any bulbs that are hanging off of Chilly, sandwich the thread between two bulbs adhered back-to-backPIU GCH 02 side
  6. Die cut the largest decorator tree from the Evergreen Pivot Card set and sponge green ink through the die to create the swirl pattern, Adhere the tree to the page with a pop dot and add a glitter star.
  7. Stamp “Santa Says” in green and “Shop!” in red using the Merry & Bright clear stamps. Die cut the circle and add to the page.
  8. Die cut 4 presents and bows using the Evergreen Pivot Card set – one each in yellow, red, green and blue. Assemble the presents and adhere them to Page 2, being careful not to cover the tuck slots that will hold the gift card.

A Christmas card using the Evergreen Pivot Card!

November 18, 2014

Hello Kelly Booth here. I make several Christmas cards to send out every year so I need to keep them as simple as possible to get them all finished. The card I have to show you today could easily be duplicated and made as multiples.

 Here is the card I will be doing today!

Watermarked Photo(98)1

 The card opens up to reveal a cute little Snowman!

Watermarked Photo(99)

1. Cut a piece of white cardstock 4″1/4″ by 10″ 1/2 and score at the center of the long side at 5″ 1/4″.

2. Place the Evergreen Pivot Card die on the scored fold, lining up the nubs on the die on the fold, and run through your die cutting machine.

3. Using the Snowflake Embossing Folder emboss each side of the card lining it up on the top and leaving an un-embossed edge at the bottom. See photo below:


4. With a piece of white cardstock about 4″ by 5″, cut 1 large, one medium and one small tree using the decorator dies found in the Evergreen Pivot Card set. Place the three trees in the snowflake embossing folder and emboss. Place the trees on each tree on the card using foam tape or pop dots for dimension.

5. Cut a strip of white cardstock 2″ 14″ by 10″ 1/2″ and two strips of Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Double Sided Adhesive the same size. Sandwich the piece of white cardstock between the ECD Double Sided Adhesive by removing the backing and adhering it to each side of the cardstock. Remove one side of the backing and pour Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter over it. Polish well with your fingers and shake off the excess. Fold this piece in the center so you know where your fold is.

6. Take the rolling hills die from the Outdoor Edges set and place on one side of the fold and run through your die cutting machine. See photo below:


7.  Place the die on the opposite side so the cuts meet and run it through again. You should now have a thin rolling hills strip that has ECD Double Sided Adhesive on the back. Don’t get rid of the negative as you will be using this piece a little later.

8. Remove the adhesive backing and place this at the bottom of the inside of the card staying away from the Evergreen Tree cut out.


9. Take the negative side of the rolling hills and place it on the outside of the card in the same place. Trim off the excess.

10. Stamp Happy Holidays in Aqua on white cardstock. Using the large decorator die and stitched die from the Lorna Label Pop Up, cut out the sentiment so the label is a vertical shape. (Scroll back to see the photo of the front of the project.)

11. Stamp the inside sentiment in a small piece of white cardstock first using Aqua Ink for the wishing you a Merry and Bright, then stamp Christmas below in red. Cut this out using the same dies as used for Happy Holidays, but this time cut it so the label is a horizontal shape.


12. Using foam tape or pop dots place the Happy Holidays label on the front to the right of the tree. Again using foam tape or pop dots place the Merry & Bright greeting to the top right of the inside of the card.

13. Stamp, color and fussy cut the little snowman. Use foam tape or pop dots to adhere him to the lower right hand corner on the inside of the card.

14. Take two small scraps of white cardstock and add a piece of Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Double Sided Adhesive to the front and back of each piece. Remove one layer and on one pour over True Red Silk Microfine Glitter and on the other Solar Gold. Polish well with your fingers and tap off the excess.

15. Using the Red glittered scrap, die cut some ornaments using the ornament dies included in the Evergreen Pivot Card set. Remove the adhesive from the back of each ornament and place ornaments on the large Christmas tree.

16. Using the Gold piece, die cut four stars. Remove the adhesive backing and place one star at the top of each decorator tree (Important: Not the trees that pivot!). Place the 4th star in the hand of the little snowman.

Your card is now finished and ready to mail! Don’t hesitate to leave me a comment if you have any questions. Hope you have a great day and thank you for stopping by the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog.
