Pop-Up Flowers Card



Tonight we learned how to make a very cool honeycomb pop-up inside of a card. First, I made my card. Here's the front:

It measures 3x6. Papers are from the Authentique Celebrate collection. Sentiment is by Paper Smooches, as are the three little circles next to the sentiment. I colored them with one of my blue Distress markers. Bottom scallop is from an SU punch, and it's there because I cut the pretty paper too short. ;/

Here's the inside of the card:

Again with the inside - I KNOW!

Then I went to work and made the flower. Here she is:

Isn't that cool?! It's a honeycomb, and it folds flat! Here it is again, stretched open a bit more:

SQUEE! I made this!

The flower stamped in the center of each petal is from the Paper Smooches Reflections set, as are the tiny circles I stamped next to the sentiment on the front. Leaves are MFT dies. White paper is just printer paper. If I make another one of these, I might try linen paper. Mmmm.

Can you tell I'm having fun? :)

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Dang. Now I "need" that Authentique paper. LOL!! I love bold paper that can BE the design of the card, and this does the trick. By the way, if you use heavier paper for the flowers, I did the first 2 folds like Julie said, then I folded the 2 outside flaps back to get a crease. Does that make sense?
