christmas holly pop-up envelope card

Show your love with this beautiful Christmas Holly Pop-Up Envelope Card made by Lorraine N.
Step 1

First, click here to download and print the template for your envelope, flowers and leaves; then cut out the shapes.

Step 2

Trace the envelope, flowers and leaves onto a combination of papers. Cut out the shapes.

Step 3


Position your envelope so that the largest flap is on top. Fold down using your bone folder, but do not glue. It should be left to open and close the envelope.

Step 4

Fold the other flaps in and glue them to one another to create the envelope.
TIP: Be careful not to glue them to the inside of the envelope so you are able to insert a card later.

Step 5

Take the longer rectangular strip and make a fold approximately ¼" [.64 cm] in from each end and another fold approximately ½" [1.27 cm] in from each end. Now, take one end of the strip and glue the bottom of the folded ¼" [.64 cm] section to the envelope at the fold of the large flap, about 2" [5.1 cm] in from the right side. Glue the bottom of the other ¼" [.64 cm] section of the strip to the envelope flap, so that the strip creates a 3D rectangle vertically across the inside flap of the envelope. Let dry.

Step 6

Take the shorter rectangular strip and make a fold approximately ¼" [.64 cm] in from each end and another fold approximately ½" [1.27 cm] in from each end. Glue the ends together to create a 3D square. Glue the bottom of the square to the envelope about 2" [5.1 cm] in from the left side vertically across the inside flap of the envelope. Let dry.

Step 7

Use an embossing pen to draw accents on your flower and leaves. Cover the accents with embossing powder and apply the heat gun to get the shiny metallic raised effect. 

Step 8

Glue the red berries to the branches. Let dry.

Step 9

Glue flowers and leaves to the 3D rectangles to create a pop-up effect. Let dry.

Step 10

Glue the rest of the flowers and leaves to the inside of the envelope to create the desired composition. Let dry.
