I love making pop up style cards and I think this one really stands out.

It’s a 6 x 6 card size and I decorated the front of this one using a large gift tag die and some leaf and flower die cuts.

For the inside, I embossed some plain cardstock and decorate the main “Book Fold” with more leaf and flower die cuts and some of my favourite acetate butterflies.

I used this First Edition “Botanical” paper pack for the card above and the First Edition ” Let’s Celebrate” papers for the card below.

Score along the 11.3/4 side at 3″, 5.7/8 and 8.3/4

1 piece of 5.3/4 x 5.3/4 plain white paper (optional) to stick on the back of your card for your sentiment.

2 pieces of 2.1/2 x 2.7/8 coloured card to mat your book fold middle section of your card.

I love the “Let’s Celebrate” papers and enjoyed fussy cutting the cute birthday Panda’s

I used the same Panda to decorate the front along with the large “Dovecraft” Happy Birthday stamp, ribbon and “English Mustard” “Party Pink” & “Double Denim” Nuvo Drops.
