Coming Home to Snowflake Splendor Pop Up Christmas Card

It's only three sleeps until Christmas and I still have four more cards to share with you!

I've been so busy the last few weeks getting ready for the festive period that I'm only just now getting round to sharing the final cards I created for 2020.

Your Christmas cards may have been written and posted long ago however, these ideas will always be available here on my blog to help inspire Christmas crafting for many more years to come


I've combined two suites from Stampin' Up! to make this Pop Up Christmas card - I've used the Snowflake Splendor DSP from the Snowflake Splendour suite and the Coming Home stamp set & Home Together dies from the Trimming the Town suite.

I got the inspiration for this card from a fantastic card swap I received from Alexis Pritchard at the #PinkiesRetreat2020. You can check out the front of her card here and the inside here. Alexis kindly shared with me how she created her card - if you're reading this Alexis, thank you!


I used my Stampin' Blends to colour the stamped images - I used Pool Party, Mint Macaron, Smoky Slate and Crumb Cake - these colours go beautifully with the DSP snowflake sky.

The sentiments are from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set and Wrapped in Christmas stamp set.

I hope you've enjoyed my project! You can subscribe to receive my blog posts by email here.


I'd like to wish you and your families a wonderful Christmas. 

This year has been like no other. Despite this, the crafting community has continued to flourish with lots of new crafters discovering the joy of creating handmade crafts of many kinds. 

For me, there is nothing like the joy I get from creating and without this, I know this year would have been much tougher. 

This wonderful hobby has undoubtedly helped so many get through these difficult times and create a positive distraction from the terrible consequences this virus has had on the world and life as we know it. 

Thank you to everyone who has visited my blog including my lovely subscribers, I'm so thankful for you taking the time to visit Handmade by Kim. I hope you enjoy my projects and having access to even more ideas when I'm blog hopping with papercrafters from all of the world.

It's been an absolute pleasure reading the comments I receive. These mean more than you could know. It's also been wonderful to see how my projects have inspired projects of your own. Don't forget to mention me on Insta or send me a link to your blog post, it truly makes my day!

Please do stay safe throughout the festive season. Some of us may not be able to be with our families this year but thank goodness for the power of technology, making it easier for us to stay connected in different ways.
