Pop Up Christmas Cards
Christmas Card Pop Up
Possibly the most fascinating Christmas card out there is the pop up Christmas card, and they can be anywhere from an extraordinary professionally made Christmas card to an extraordinary home made pop up Christmas card. Either way, they are among my favorite greetings cards, and I love it when someone sends me one.
What you do have to be careful of with pop up Christmas cards is how they are handled and who handles them. The very pop up that makes them so interesting also is the thing that causes them to catch on to something easily and tear.
When I get a card like that I either put it up high on the wall to let grownups look and enjoy it, or I show children while holding it myself. If you are too nice in this area, you might make friends with the little ones, but you won't have a Christmas card left when their fascination disassembles it in a hurry.
On the positive side though, they are wonderful gifts to receive, and they can be included as part of your Christmas decorations year after year as long as you take care of them.
Here are a few that go from the simple to the very professional pop up Christmas cards, and all of them look great in my estimation.

It may not seem like it, but homemade pop up Christmas cards aren't that difficult to make, and I've shown a couple here that look nice and would be a lot of fun to make.

Pop Up Christmas Card Santa and Sleigh
This 3-D pop up Christmas card is a good example of why I enjoy them so much. Look at the way the presents on the right seem to be flying out of the sleigh while it's traveling. You just don't get that look with a regular Christmas card.

Great Santa and Sleigh Pop Up Christmas Card
This gives a different look, as Santa's not a pop up, but the reindeer and snow-covered trees in front are. It, again, gives it the feeling of depth, and I find it compelling how Santa's hand before the moon also makes it seem more real.

Another Santa and Sleigh Pop Up Christmas Card
This is my favorite of all those pop up Christmas cards I've included here, for several reasons. First, look at the lead reindeer and how they look shadowed and far away. Then the reindeer closest to the sleigh are darker and give the illusion of being closer, then of course you have the sleigh of Santa which pops up, again, giving it even more depth.
That's the secret to pop up Christmas cards, the way the image appears to have depth and 3 dimensions to it.

Fantastic Pop Up Christmas Cards
Looking at all these great pop up Christmas cards show why they're fun to make and fun to receive. If you really get some you like and want to preserve, as I mentioned before, they won't last more than a minute if you put them in the hands of children, as they can't resist pulling on the pop ups to see what happens. Just keep them away and in high places and you should do okay with them.
