CCREw0512HF- Blessing My Life Pop-Up
This challenge is for the girls! Make a free standing pop-up card for a special female in your life (your mom, your sister, an aunt, or a best friend)!
The tutorial is here: Splitcoaststampers - Free Standing Pop-Up Card Tutorial by Mary JoAlbright . Don’t forget- a great project to use the Simply Scored™ board and the new Simply Scored™ diagonal insert!
I used the tutorial to create the pop-up card- heat embossed the flowers on Whisper White.
Stamp the En Francais background stamp using Basic Gray (stamp off first) and color the flowers using Stampin’ Write markers- Blushing Bride, Concord Crush, Pear Pizzazz and Peach Parfait.
Emboss the outside panel with the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder (before assembling the card).
Add the ribbon bow, rolled flower and sentiment to finish off the card.
Stamp Sets: Elements of Style, Herb Expressions (soon to be retired), En Francais
Ink: Basic Gray, Blushing Bride, Stampin’ Write Markers- Concord Crush, Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride
Cardstock: Concord Crush, Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride and Whisper White
