For the card above, (yes, it does fold flat) I used the ODBD Surprise Box Die to create a fun pop up snowflake card. The NEW products I used are: Merry and Bright, Christmas Lights Dies, Snow Crystals, and the design paper is Snowflake Season Paper Collection. I also used Balloons and Streamers dies and the Log Cabin Quilt die from a past release. This was so fun to create! It goes together easily with the ODBD Surprise Box dies. The surprise box die easily cuts both the box and layered inserts, plus inside panels to support the box's square shape and to which you adhere your streamers, etc. After adhering the design papers, I die cut lots of snowflakes from pink and white card stock, and from glittery gold and glittery white papers from American Crafts. I adhered the snowflakes to streamers and/or little strips of paper, and adhered them to the inside of the box. I heat embossed the sentiment and the Christmas lights with gold, cut the sentiment with the Log Cabin Quilt die, cut the lights with the new Christmas Lights Die, and adhered.
For my next card, I used the Merry and Bright stamp set, and numerous dies: Snowflake Sky, Snow Crystals, Peace Border, Double Stitched Rectangles, and Log Cabin Quilt dies. I also used the Winter Paper Collection 2014.
To create this card I started with my white base, added a glitter silver paper layer which I cut with the Snowflake Sky outter die, then layered a thin glitter gold mat, followed by the design paper from the Winter Paper Collection 2014 which I die cut with a Double Stitched Rectangle, and topped that with a white die cut Snowflake Sky layer. I die cut the Peace Border from both white and glitter gold, adhered them together for a shadow offset, and adhered to the card. I cut three snowflakes from the Snow Crystals Die set: one from silver glitter paper, one from white, and one from gold glitter paper, and popped them up in a layered design. The sentiment "To You" is part of one of the sentiments in the Merry and Bright set. The full sentiment says "Peace to You" but since I wanted to use the large Peace Die, I only inked up the "To You" part with VersaMark, and heat embossed that in gold, then cut with a small strip from the Log Cabin Quilt Die. It's much prettier in person with the hints of sparkle from the silver and gold glitter paper. I finished with a small sheer silver bow.
