O' Holy Night Christmas - Lori Whitlock Pop Up Card SVG

👉 Take time to do what makes your soul happy.






Hi everyone,

I can't take much credit for the design of this beautiful Lori Whitlock SVG Pop Up Box Card because I cut out the layers on my Cricut pretty much as they were. Gluing the layers takes some precision but once I got the hang of it I made 28 of these cards in a relatively short time.  I usually change things up quite a bit with SVG's, but I loved this card just as it was. I did happen to have the perfect sentiment in my stash and I glittered things up a bit with white and gold glitter papers.  I also added rhinestones to the stars to make them shine.  This card is sparklicious in person! 

Here's my Panoply Pattern:

TECHNIQUES:
  1. Purchase and download Lori Whitlock SVG into Cricut Design Space.
  2. I didn't change the size  because 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 was the largest size for the mat.
  3. I like to change all the dotted fold lines to score lines.
  4. Be sure to attach score lines to layer before cutting!
  5. Choose paper and cut according to paper thickness.  I like to use the fabric setting on thick cardstock.
  6. Fold on score lines. Make sure card folds evenly into a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card.
  7. On this card, I didn't cut out the sentiment because I used a stamp from my stash.
  8. Align layers and glue.
  9. Use a bone folder to flatten folds.
  10. Stamp sentiment with black ink and line panel using gold leafing pen.
  11. Add embellishments and make it your own.

TOOLS:
  • Lori Whitlock Pop Up Box Card SVG
  • Bazzill navy dotted card stock
  • White glitter card stock
  • Gold glitter card stock
  • White Bristol Vellum card stock for base
  • Clear rhinestones
  • Stampabilities sentiment stamp - O Holy Night
  • Versafine Onyx Black Ink
  • Krylon18kt Gold Leafing pen
  • Tombow Mono Liquid Adhesive
  • Sookwang double sided tape

TIPS:

The windows in the Bethlehem layer were very intricate and I had to do a lot of punching out with a stylus.  I chose to do a solid navy layer for the mechanism layer. (I used the contour feature in design space).  The windows aren't open all the way through, but the navy layer looks fine.

I used Sookwang tape on the tabs of the box mechanism to make it stronger.

I glued the top wise men layer to the blue panel first and then lined it up with the card base panel.  This helps everything to line up perfectly.

Thanks for visiting.
Go forth and create something fabulous.
Nancy

  9. This is gorgeous and oh, so fun!! I love cards that speak to the true meaning of Christmas and the images you used are perfect for your sentiment (or maybe it is the other way around!) And the fun fold really creates a sweet little scene. Thanks for playing with CHNCC2.
