This card came together really fast! It' easy when the artwork is beautiful and inspiring. Plus, I had most of the mechanics already worked out -- this card shares a common genetic identity with my Giraffe card.
It's the first card in my 180 degreee stand-up series that I've printed on the pop-up -- usually, as for my African Animal series, I leave the subject white, so that the simple white silhouette has more power, but in this festive card, I know that this artwork is a real winner.
I think this would be a nice card for people to send out -- you don't get many unusual pop-up cards in the holiday mail and it would certainly stand out! I'm going to offer free personalization on orders with at least ten cards, I think...
In other news, my Elf Pop-Up Card Giveaway is going strong! I can't believe I have more than 30 entries already and still half of the week to go. I love love LOVE hearing all the nice comments from people about the things in my store -- it's really worth it just to get that kind of feedback! Plus it's nice to know what people are liking. I got several comments, for instance about my Summer Breezes Thank You Notes, which I never thought of as being anything special.
Anyway, I'll pick some random winners on Sunday, so if you haven't already entered to win, head on over and do so! All you have to do is leave a comment (or more for extra chances). There are five cards being given away, so the odds are really good.
