Happy Birthday Pop-up Card

Today I created another pop-up card using a different Sizzix die.  First I will tell you about the front of the card.  I used design paper from the Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden paper pad for both the front and inside of this card.  The large green doily is one of the four dies from the Marianne Design LR0240 die set.  On top of the green doily I added the Marianne Design "Calypso Flourish".   The design paper on the inside has beige roses highlighted with a burgundy edging, so I created the same color roses for the front.  I used the Spellbinders "Spiral Blossom One" for the large rose and the MFT (Die-Namics) Royal Rolled Rose for the smaller roses and buds.  The Cheery Lynn Build A Flower #2 embellishments dies were used for the greenery around the buds and also for the baby's breath.   The leaves were die cut using the Cheery Lynn "Rose Leaf Strip".   There are also butterflies on the inside design paper so I tried to duplicate the same type butterfly using the Memory Box "Kaleidoscope" and "Moonlight" butterflies.  It was sponged using Distress Inks

When you open the card you are greeted with this fun pop-up.   It was created with the Sizzix "Raising 3-D (PopUp) Platform.  I use the eBosser to die cut it and did not need to use a crease pad to get perfect score lines.   I followed the directions for assembling this pop-up and sponged around the tag before attaching another butterfly like I attached to the front of the card.  I only added adhesive to the right side of the butterfly so it would fold flat when the card is closed.  I used two different pieces of the design paper from the Pink Paislee "Butterfly Garden" pad on the inside.  One of the sheets was cut in half and those pieces attached to the outer edges and another different sheet was trimmed and attached right in the center.  This way I had all the pretty design of the sheet with the butterflies on both sides.    

In this picture you can see the pop-up mechanism better.  I die cut the Cheery Lynn "Happy" and "Birthday" sentiments for the inside and added the pretty Marianne Design embellishment at the bottom.  This is a 5.5" by 6" card.  You can use the Sizzix pop-up in a smaller card such as an A-2 size.

Another gorgeous card to add to your collection. Love that pop-up, that looks tricky (at least for this newbie, LOL). The papers are beautiful. You do have the eye for details Selma.
