I make Christmas pop up card series. For my first card, it's featuring Mrs. Santa Claus and the sheeps. For the inside, if you open it, there's Mrs. Santa Claus and the sheeps busy at home making gifts and decorate Christmas tree.

Mama Elephant supply that I'm using :
Wooly Winter for the sheeps images
Wooly Winter Creative Cuts to die cut the sheeps images
O' Tiny Tree for the tree,ornament and gifts images
Merry Christmas Wishes for the sentiment
Gable Box Creative Cuts to die cut the circle scallop frames on the cover
Cozy Christmas for Mrs. Santa Claus images
Pop Up Trio Creative Cuts to die cut inside of the card for pop up
Confetti Creative Cuts to die cut the stars on silver glitter card stock

I stamp, color the images using Copic then die cut it. For the background, I'm using Dye Ink with blending tool. The sentiment is from gold embossing powder for the cover and I'm using white embossing powder for the inside of the card.

For my second card series, it's featuring Santa Claus with the reindeers. In the inside. they are busy delivering gifts for all of us

  87. Oh my gosh! Your cards are the best! I'll bet the ones that open up and are standing used die cuts. Darn! I don't have a die cutter! I guess I can't do that one but I love them all anyway. I kept wondering if I had any ME stamps and then I saw your reindeer. I have those from last year! So I do have some of their stamps! I have so many it's hard to remember if I have some or not. Glad to see they are still part of Santa's team.
