Step by Step
1-  Create 2  blanks of 17x15 cm for the base card with the Centura Pearl A3 Cardstock. Score and fold one by the middle. Keep the other one straight and draw a line with a pencil in the half. Do not score!
2-  Position the Tree concept die in the straight card. Make sure the notches in the die are aligned with the pencil line. Secure the die in position with a low tack adhesive, cut it with the die cut machine and manipulate the pop-up. Score across the card but not over any of the concept parts, gently fold out the Tree. 
3.-Cut a piece of 8.5 x 15cm out of patterned paper from the Decorative Christmas cardstock. 
Position the piece in the inside top of the card and place your concept die over the base card in the same place where you have the first die cut.  Secure the die with a low tack adhesive, (only this piece of paper).  Remove the base card from underneath and run it through the die cutting machine. Snip and discard away the partial die cut.

5.- Line the base card with the pop out over the plain base card so the back of the pop out can be seen. Use a piece of paper pad with the same design of the inside of the card to stick in the base card just underneath the white space where the pop up is.
6.- Glue the two blanks together. Make sure don't glue around or in your pop up.

7.Die cut the pop out tree by his own out of green cardstock, the little windows and the scenes to be positioned at the side of the tree. Use the frame and tree stamps with the Stazone ink over the die cuts to give it more detail. Attach the scenes behind the windows. Add foam pads and attach each side of the tree in the card.
8 Die cut the elements from the Tree Accessories pack out of coloured cardstock. Attach them to the stamped tree. Affix the tree over the pop out.
9. Die cut enough foliage to decorate the border of the card and the windows in light and dark green cardstock. Place then in the inside top on the card from side to side. Die cut the little poinsettias and place them in the foliage as shown. Add a yellow gem in the centre of the poinsettias.
10. Attach the foliage die cuts to the windows bottom border and a poinsettia die cut in the centre.
11. Die cut a piece of patterned cardstock k of 7.5x7 cm. Affix it o the inside bottom as shown,
11. Stamp one of the sentiments from the  Festive Phrases clear stamp set over Neenah Card. Die cut the border top and bottom with a decorative Christmas border die. Cut the sides straight.  Attach to the inside bottom. Add foliage and one poinsettia to each side of the sentiment.



Outside :
1. Emboss the piece of white Centura Card with the  Gemini Dimensionals 5 x 7 Embossing Folder - Holly Vine Swirls.  Dab slightly a Mowed Lawn Distress Ink to the embossed surface. Wrap a red ribbon at the bottom. Use few die cuts of foliage and poinsettia to create an embellishment. Place over the ribbon as shown.
2-. Die cut the word Sparkle in black out of black cardstock.  Affix the sentiment at the right side over the ribbon. To finish add one silver snowflake on the top right.
