Pop-Up Holiday Cards

Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2013 dear readers, students, and parents!  Just giving you a glimpse of the Pop-Up Holiday Greeting Card samples making process.
1. Created a coloring template of 9 characters on a 8.5" X 11" sheet of card stock.
2. Used my favorite coloring tool (you could use crayons, colored pencils, or other markers) or you can even leave the characters in black and white, so that the recipient could have some fun coloring them.  I like using Copic Sketch markers and a Pentel silver outline pen for highlights.
3. Carefully cut the colored characters and affix them to the pop up tabs of a 6" X 9" colored card stock folded in half to yield a 6" X 4.5" card.  Glued a second card for extra support and to cover the void left by the pop-up tabs.
3. Rounded the card edges and they are ready for customizing and mailing them out.

For some of my templates that you could print and customize for your own use check this previous post.
