"Spring" pop up card!

   Hello!  How are you today?! Have you ever made a pop up card?!  You have to!!!  They are so much fun!!!  Seriously, go now and make one!!  I will wait here!  :)

  Ok, I suspect you didn't actually go and do that, but I forgive!  You can make one later!  Promise?!

  So,  I attend a monthly demo meeting that always includes a swap.  Our swap this month was a pop up card.  There are lots of variations to choose from, but I decided to go with the standard ole' pop up!  Take a look:

Here is my card closed.  I stamped the heart from You Are Loved and punched out a 1" circle for the flower center. 

Here is it open and all popped up!  What a fun thing! LOL  I made a punch art bee bumble (sounds so much friendlier than bumble bee!) to go along with those bright, happy flowers!  He has a cute little stinger, but it is hidden behind the blooms!

View from the top.

Another angle.

Head on!

Side view.

You really have to try one of these!  It is such a fun surprise to open the card and have everything pop right up!

What a great way to use punches! The flowers are so cute, and the bumble is adorable as well.... except for his stinger... {gasp} if you touch it, you'll get a paper cut! lol
