Joy to the World Pop Up Christmas Cards

By Kavitha


“Hello G45 fans,

I hope it's not too early to start with making Christmas cards.The new Joy to the World  collection is so festive and gorgeous that I couldn't resist making some special cards using them.It was so hard to stop using the papers,so I prepared three special fold cards for you today.


First one is a very special 3d shadow box card which i absolutely loved creating.There is totally four layers in this card,each layer is filled with lots of beautiful fussy cut images from the paper.





Tip: Fussy cut same images from 12*12 and 8*8 paper pad to get 3d effect while doing the arrangement




Tip: In each layer add foam tape to some images to get more layered effect







Swing card:




Centre Step Card Tutorial:


Take a 6 by 12 inches cardstock,cut and score according to the template



Cut the pattern papers according to the size and take an angel image from “Ephemera pack” for the focal image


Die cut flowers and leaves from “Pattern and solid” pad


Glue all the layers of flowers together,keep it on the foam pad and press in the centre to give shape. Put a drop of liquid glue in the center and sprinkle black micro beads and allow it to dry completely


Tip: Alternate solids and pattern design for each layer of the flower to create an interest.


Cut some images from the “Ephemera” pack,


Tip: You can get some full solid images to fussy cut from ephemera pack and cover of the paper pad.


Arrange all the fussy cut images, flowers and die cuts as you like.




I hope you enjoyed my projects for today.

Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting.”

My dear Kavi, these are stunning cards, and I appreciate your helpful hints. As an Angel collector for forty years, I am jumping at the chance to make Angel Christmas cards this year. It’s definitely not too early for me to begin using my Graphic 45 Joy to the World collection for these special cards.

My Mark McDaniel from Ohio USA, I'm married and blessed with 2 kids (male). Myself and my wife provides for our kids and make sure they are happy. One weekend while I was home, I noticed my first son rude behavior. I talked to him to change his sudden behavior yet to no avail. I became so worried then I searched online for every possible help I could get. A saw a comment of someone parent who had similar experience then I talked to them via email. They told me about DR Odinani Owell the great spell caster helped them change the life of their kids too who became so rude all of a sudden. They give me DR Odinani Owelle the great spell email then I wrote to him, telling him about my son sudden behaviour. DR Odinani Owelle the great spell caster gave me his words that in 2 weeks time, my son is gonna be back to his normal behaviour. Dr Odinani Owell the great spell caster asked me to make purchase of certain items which I did and the item we so cheap. I had doubt in myself that how can such little items bring back my son to his normal self until the fifth day of the second week. My son woke up in the morning, came to my room, began to apologies for his sudden behaviour. My heart was filled with laughter and smile arouse my face. I embraced him and I told him I've forgiven him. To others out there, don't keep your problems to yourself. Share it with a friend or search for possible solutions online. You too can write to Dr Odinani Owelle the great spell caster if you've any problem,,,,,,,, Here's he's email or
