Pop-Up Christmas Card with Pam Bray's Christmas Collection

Hello everyone!  Can you believe it is December already?  My how time flies when you are having fun.  And speaking of fun, I am having so much fun with Pam Bray's new Christmas stamp sets.   If you know anything about me, you know I love dimension, and I found this fabulous pop-up fireplace card on my Silhouette.  It was just what I needed to hang my stamped Christmas stockings and place my gift box.  Yeah, only one gift so far, but it is early.  LOL 

I am also linking up with the Unruly Paper Arts Christmas Link Up Party.  Check out the rest of the bloggers' projects there.  

Here is the front of the card.  I folded a print card stock in half to make a 5" x 7" card, stamped and colored  Santa onto white card stock and cut around him, adhering to a 3" doily.  Dear Santa ... was stamped onto a note card from the paper collection, and a Santa definition from my Silhouette added.
And here is what you see on the inside.  Isn't this fabulous?  I cut the pop-up out in full once, and two more times in the parts I needed so I could have the base (beige), the red bricks (red), and the wooden mantel (tan).  I ran the tan mantel piece through a woodgrain embossing folder and darkened the grain with a brown ink.  The red piece was embossed with a brick embossing folder and highlighted with a white ink.  Now to hang the stockings with care, and set the first present nearby.  
Here is a view from above.  You can see the stamped sentiment from Pam's Christmas Collection 2, stamped in green StazOn and die cut with a fancy labels die.
Here is a close-up view of those cute stockings and present that I stamped onto white card stock, colored and cut out to hang on the mantel.  I used a red Pico embellisher pen to make the berry dots on the garland, and on the stockings.
