Pop Up Card!!!

Had some fun making this Pop Up Card.
You can get instructions for this from Splitcoast Stampers. I made mine a little wider than the instructions as I wanted to fit these two pop outs onto the front.
The snowman is Inkadinkado and the tree is handcut and embossed with a Quickutz folder. The baubles are peeloff dots as I didn't have enough of the clear gems I wanted to use.

Had an enquiry about the greeting used on yesterday's card. It's a peeloff believe it or not. I just love the font and wish I could find the same thing in a stamp.

Got my DG hat on again today and have made another of our favourite winter warmer meals. Tonight we are having Hash Jackets. I don't normally like jacket potatoes but I will eat them if the potato is scooped out and mixed with something.

To make Hash Jackets you will need-:

1 large baking potato per person, scrubbed and pricked with a fork.
2 medium onions, peeled and diced.
Creamed Horseradish Sauce.
English Mustard.
Tin of Corned Beef, diced.
Salt and ground black pepper.

Bake the potatoes on a fairly high heat so that the skins are crispy when cooked.

Melt butter in a frying pan and saute the onions until soft.
Add one teaspoon of mustard and one teaspoon of horseradish sauce to the onions and mix thoroughly.
When potatoes are cooked cut them in half, scoop out the potato into a mixing bowl (save the skins as you will need them later) and mash them down a little.
Add the onion mixture and mix thoroughly then gently fold in the Corned Beef.
Season to taste and then divide the mixture between the potato skins and return to a hot oven to brown.

I serve this with salad and crusty bread.

Right best go and feed them.......they're acting like I've been starving them for a!!!

Thanks for dropping by.


  1. This looks like it was a fun card to make. Might take a wander over to SCS. Sue x

  2. What a brilliant card...wonderful colours.

  3. I'm just catching up after getting back from hols yesterday. I'm still a bit jet-lagged but getting there and it's lovely to come back to so many fabulous cards Sheila.

    This is a fun card and has a really frosty look to it.

    Some fabulous makes here while I've been away but then I knew there would be.

    Oh, thanks for the recipe too. I'm not a lover of jacket potatoes either but could really fancy these.
