More of my Passion for Pop Ups


In case you haven't noticed, I love pop up cards, this one is based on what is called the simple box.  I made this for a sweet friend to give to her Mum for Mothers Day.  I am entering it into the following challenges.
  Our Creative Corner is challenging us to use blossoms on our cards.
Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge 36 is Flowers.
Digital Tuesday Challenge April flowers or April Showers.
Allsorts Challenge has the photo below as an inspiration. 
Here's what I used to make this card.  Card Front - Mum cut with  Cricut Plantin Schoolbook, Pink Passion card stock, Wonderful Wings, Baroque Motifs Stampin Up, Krylon 18 kt gold leafing pen,  Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls embossing folder.  
Inside - If you look closely you will see 5 tiny butterflies punched with Marvy Standard & Jumbo butterfly punch.  My flowers are a combination, the majority are from Sarah Paris Butterfly Garden Digi Stamps.   I purchased from My Grafico, 1 flower is from Inkadoo Doodle Flowers and 1 other from Stampin Up Polka Dots and Petals.  Vellum insert and butterflies from Paper and MoreMartha Stewart lace punch and Ranger's Tim Holtz Distress Ink worn lipstick.  Floral paper and glitter from JoAnns.   Whew!  I used a lot of products on this little card, which by the way is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.    If you are interested, I do have instructions on how to make a Pop Up card in an older post.  You will find it under Pop Ups and again in Tutorials in my sidebar. Thanks for looking, ~Diane
