Creative Folds - Surprise Pop Up Card

Paige has a great challenge at Holy Jolly Christmas Challenges this week, Creative Folds.  This is a great time to try one of those card folds you have seen on Split Coast Stampers or Pinterest and have another Christmas card completed for this year.

I chose the surprise pop up card pattern I found on Split Coast Stampers by Beate.  You can find the instructions here.  The image I chose for the card is by Fred, She Said Designs called Christmas Rosey.  Isn't he cute. 

This was a fun challenge and i hope you will join us.  If you need some inspiration just pop by the Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge Blog and see the other creations the Chrismtas Elves have made this week to inspire you.
