Nutcracker Themed Platform Pop-Up card with Mimi

It’s the last weekend for our Challenge 128 – Christmas in July! Time to get a jump on your holiday crafting and enter the challenge before Sunday, July 17 at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see how this challenge inspires you!

Today Mimi joins us to share a super clever Platform Pop-Up with a nutcracker theme! It’s great inspiration for Christmas in July!

Mimi created a beautifully decorated front porch on a Platform Pop-Up with Shut the Front Door and two super clever nutcrackers! Check out the diagram below to see how she made them.

She added festive holiday accents using the Christmas tree from Yeti or Not, the garland from Shadow Box Card Fireplace Add-On and the wreath from Car Critters Christmas Add-On.

Den Sweet Den, Special Delivery, Fab Flowers, Let’s Roll, Dad + Me, Let’s BBQ, Booyah, Virtual Friends

To decorate the Platform Pop-Up base, Mimi used Snow Globe Scenes! They fit perfectly on the side panels. To add the snow, she used Winter in the Park and Winter Village.

Thanks so much for sharing this brilliant card with us, Mimi!

Remember, it’s the last weekend for the Christmas in July challenge!

She used Distress ink in Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers, Chipped Sapphire and Broken China for the Mini Snowflakes and used Tumbled Glass to add the frosty color to the background! Happy Holidays Line Border provides the holiday greeting!

Samantha C featured our sweet snow bunny from Critters in the Arctic in her lovely wintry scene! For the background she used Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Backdrop, Mini Snowflakes and birch trees from Joy to the Woods!

Jessica create a fun seaside scene for her cute puffins from our new Valentine set, Stud Puffin! She used Stitched Wave Borders and Just Stitching Hearts to complete this lovely design!

Joyce created an adorable Christmas card with the Hang in There sloth! She added fun holiday accessories from Cheery Christmas, Toboggan Together and Say What? Christmas Critters! The little birds from Open Me are ready to celebrate!

Samantha M used alcohol ink to create a frosty North Pole sky! Then she used the Snow Cool penguins, igloo and “snowpenguin” to fill the happy scene!

Franci used the blues and greens from the Inspiration Board in soft shades then added a pop of golden yellow! The Sealed with a Kiss cuties are ready for the holiday festivities!

Christy‘s card is “unbelievably” awesome! She combined critters from Lovable Legends, Yeti or Not and Believe in Yourself to create this “legendary” scene!

Karin cleverly incorporated the inspiration colors in the scarves on the Mice on Ice! Her Reveal Wheel card uses Snowfall Backdrop, Forest Border, Reveal Wheel Square Add-On and Reveal Wheel Holiday Sentiments!

Jenn inked up panels of white cardstock with Lawn Fawn ink in Moonstone, Forget-Me-Not and Deep Sea then used them to die cut the Stitched Snowflakes. For the background she ink-smooshed with Lawn Fawn Peacock ink then spritzed it with water mixed with Liquid Stardust! The Scripty Thanks in Cilantro cardstock adds a beautiful pop of brightness!
