Hey Everyone! So here is a little thing you may not know about me. I absolutely do not have a green thumb. I love flowers but, well, growing them isn’t my specialty. But I can create them in the form of a pop up flower card. I wanted to do something a little different than the pop up cards I have been seeing a lit of. I am creating this with a fabulous die set from I-Crafter called Box Pops, Oval Base. This not only creates the pop up mechanism but comes with flower dies. You can use this base with lots of other sets in your stash. They also have different add-ons which give you so many opportunities. So I am using DCS Discount Card Stock: Textured Pearl Green Curry Card Stock, Silk GLITTER Opulent Opal 12×12 Card Stock, DCS Discount Card Stock: Pearlized Strawberry Cream Pink, DCS Discount Card Stock: Canvas Textured Flamingo Card Stock, and DCS Discount Card Stock: Pearlized Textured Fruit Punch Pink.
I am cutting two of the base pieces out of the green and am using a liquid adhesive to attach my pieces. You can use lots of different types of adhesive, but you do want a strong hold. I have also cut stems and petals from the same green. I then am using different colors of cardstock, as listed above, and cutting assorted pieces out of these cardstocks and then adhering them, mixing and matching, to create different flowers. I am then adhering the different flowers together and adhering them along with the different stems and leaves to create my flower card arrangement. Have a look!
I do hope you like this project and as always, I can’t wait to see what you create!
