I’ve got a new tutorial AND video to share with you today featuring the Sizzix Pop `n cut Base die and insert by Karen Burniston. I want to share the video first, so you can see just how quick and easy it is to assemble a Pop `n Cut. You’ll find online sources to purchase your own PNC Base & Insert at the bottom of this post.
In the above video, I used kraft cardstock and blue patterned paper for my PNC card assembly. I decided to go ahead and use that for my project so you could have an example of just how you can incorporate other Sizzix dies with the Pop `n Cuts system to create a card.
Making the Card
Start by cutting your card base and PNC Circle Label insert. Use the Scallops On The Edge die to create a decorative edge by folding the cut PNC Circle Label together and running through your Big Shot machine at one time. Assemble and glue together.
Decorate the front of your card by adding some coordinating patterned paper to the card front. Add a strip of paper that matches your inside PNC to the bottom front of your card and glue down. Cut a 3-1/2” x 4-1/2” Christmas Tree Framelits out of green and emboss using the Christmas Words & Dots Textures Impressions Sizzix Embossing Folder and decorate with black pen. Add to your card front.
Next, cut a snowman and hat from the Sizzix Snowmen & Let it Snow die set. Decorate snowman and hat and assemble on card front overlapping the tree.
Cut three snowflakes using the Mini Snowflakes Sizzix Movers & Shapers die set and outline with black. Glue two towards the bottom left of your card and one towards the upper right. These Movers & Shapers fit perfectly into the PNC bases tray and can be cut using the tray itself!
Cut a second snowman from the Sizzix Snowmen & Let it Snow die. Decorate, assemble, and glue down the bottom portion of the snowman to the front of the Circle Label Pop `n cut.
Use the bonus “Let it Snow” Sizzlits set from the Sizzix Snowmen & Let it Snow die set to cut out your title. Glue down to the inside of your card underneath the PNC.
Add a strip of patterned paper to the bottom of your card that matches the coordinating patterned paper on the front of your card. Cut a 1-3/8” x 2” Christmas Tree Framelits out of green and emboss using the Christmas Words & Dots Textures Impressions Sizzix Embossing Folder. Outline tree in black and glue down to the bottom right corner of your card.
Finally, cut three more snowflakes using the Mini Snowflakes Movers & Shapers set and outline with black. Glue one down to the left of the small tree and two at the top of your card.
You’re card is officially done! :-)
