POP UP CARDS 4 more samples

Carole has a great challenge this week, pop up cards! I love making pop ups, they always bring such amazement to anyone who opens one up. They can range from simple to time consuming and elaborate. There are many ways to make a shelf, or you can buy pre made shelves to stick in your card. There is also the wire or plastic pop up that has your item spring forth and really pop out at you. I have pulled together some of my pop ups to share.

This is the inside of the card I made for this weeks challenge.
Card made with card stock from DCWV NANA'S Kitchen. Die cut flowers, grass and stems all made with Cricut Plantin Schoolbook, Cricut Accent Essentials and Cricut Walk in my Garden Misc supplies, mirrored butterfly, chunky black glitter, rhinestones, vellum butterfly with seed beads and Bazzil bitty blossoms.

Front of same card.

This is the inside of a card I custom made for a special customer in my Etsy store. I cut the balloons with my Cricut and stamped them, and added tiny strings to some of the balloons.
I made these with my vellum butterflies a while back when I was on a pop up kick!

This is an insanely detailed card, but I love it! I hand stamped the flowers, cut them out, stamped , cut and colored the bee, then covered it in Crystal effects. Like the balloon card I mounted the flowers in 3 layers.
For the front of the card I used an expensive napkin someone gave me as a gift. I found a technique make it into fancy cardstock. I separated the napkin layers, I then placed a piece of saran wrap on top of a sheet of cardstock and placed the napkin on top of that and ironed it until it stuck together. Did I say this was insanely time consuming? I used some of my vellum butterflies and dragonflies. I made 10 of these for the ladies in my card swap!

Well I hope you enjoyed my pop ups. Thanks for looking~Diane
