Surprise Christmas

Bah! Humbug!     Challenge 22...Surprise! Surprise!
Jingle Belles     JB23-Let It Sew, Let It Sew, Let It Sew
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge     CHNC 23: Wintertime Blues

What is this you might wonder?  SURPRISE!  SURPRISE!
 This is my first Pop-Up Box Card and the beauty of it is that it when folded flat it goes in a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" envelope for ease of mailing. 
I got the instructions from Dawn Burke on her YouTube videos. She is one of the first YouTube videos I ever looked at when I found YouTube a couple of years ago. Dawn has lots of videos and she has such a fun, happy personality, and she gives great instructions that I find myself going back to her for lots of ideas and helpful hints.
My 3 favorite Christmas Challenges are pretty self explanatory when you look my card. Surprise, Sewing, and Blue. 

Supplies: Papers: SU-Night of Navy, K&Co Let It Snow Specialty Paper, Stamps: Recollections-Christmas Borders, Inkadinkado-Warm Holiday Wishes, Ink: SU-Not Quite Navy, Brilliance-Starlite Silver, The Paper Studio Spare Parts-brad, Hobby Lobby-ribbon, Silver sewing thread, sewing machine.

Thanks for visiting and viewing,
Beverly G ♥
