365 Cards - Day 47 Pop-up Card

Whew! I finally caught up on the 365 cards challenges for the week. Here's my pop-up card. I've never made a pop-up card before. I found a couple tutorials online and adapted them to suit my needs. About a month ago, I found some great matching butterfly cards and 3-D stickers (Studio 18) in the dollar bin at Michaels. I picked them up because I really liked them, but didn't know what I'd use them for. Well, they fit this challenge wonderfully!! The butterfly on the front of my card is actually the card front from the note card. I trimmed the corners with my ticket punch. The stamp I used is one in my collection. I bought it many years ago from an independent vendor - Judith. The green is SU Wild Wasabi paper and ink. The inside was fairly simple (but not easy) to do. Only one cut was required, the vase is folded on two score lines. The green paper is scraps I had on hand. Because the stickers were 3-D, they had a sticky foam pad on the back. I used this to attach my wires to, and then cut a small scrap of paper to put over the rest of the sticky pad and wire. Thanks to this challenge, my Mother's Day cards are now complete and ready to send. However, please don't tell my mom they're here on my blog. I want her to be surprised. (LOL - she really doesn't like computers! And, Dad, if you check my blog don't tell her about the card.)

  11. Thanks so much Deb for the address for the tutorial and for visiting my blog. Quilting is quilting, I love doing it in paper, also, and you can see results faster, and work out a colour scheme.
