JAI 128 - Inspirational Photo - Flower Garden Pop-up Box Card

In April this year I learnt how to make a pop-up box card at Crafty Capers.  I really enjoyed the class that was created by Natalie and Jill and have made another card using alternative products.  This card lies flat and fits into a C6 envelope so is easy to post.

The Designer Series Paper is from the Mocha Morning Speciality Pack, cardstock is Old Olive, Wild Wasabi, Always Artichoke, Soft Suede, Melon Mambo, Blushing Bride, Regal Rose and Very Vanilla. 

I used a lot of punches and dies on this card, being Scallop Trim Border (this creates the fence around the garden), Scallop Oval, Boho Blossoms, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Bird Builder, Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, Little Leaves Sizzlits Die and the Magnetic Movers & Shapers Punch Window Die.  Basic Jewel Rhinestones were used for the flower centres and 5/8" Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon for around the box and the butterfly in the flower garden is attached to a piece of Word Window Sheet.   The leaves from the Little Leaves Sizzlits Die were put through the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder to give them some texture.

The pop-up mechanism in the card is made from On Board Sheets and hat elastic.

I have entered this card in the Just Add Ink inspirational photo challenge this week.
