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.
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.
