A Pop-Up Easter Card for Cuttlebug Be Inspired #77

This week at Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot, we are creating Easter 3D POP-UP projects for Be Inspired #77! These type of Pop-Up surprises can be a blast to create and actually quite simple with a few scores & folds. Here is my take in which I've allowed the DCWV lovely DP to do most of the work for me:

...And these are the surprise flowers popping-up on the inside of this card:

This Glitter Premium DP from DCWV is so beautiful that it was really tough to have to cut into it! LOL!  I cut out several flowers & butterflies directly from this lovely DP then glued with strong adhesives to the scored/popped inner sections to create this 3-D Pop-up look.

CARD RECIPE:
STAMPS: ODBD, Our Daily Bread Designs, Easter Blessings
PAPER: DCWV Glitter "CIAO BELLA" premium DP stack & Acetate Sheet, Green Textured Bazzill CS, White Haavy CS
INK: Black StaOn, Dyes in flower colors to outline
ACCESSORIES: Cuttlebug Swiss DOTS Embossing folder, Gold Brads, Martha Stewart Border Punch
TECHNQUE: Dry Embossing, Pop-Up

Check out the rest of the fabulous creations by our International Design Team at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot HERE:

Thanks for looking & Happy Creating!

This is an amazing card. the colours and flowers are fantastic and the garden fence effect of the punched border is fabulous. The butterflies are awesome. Lovely scripture text.
