Pop-up Card for Little Birdie Crafts

I've got a really cute card to share with you today that I made for Little Birdie Crafts.  I used their Birds and Berries 6 x 6"  and 12 x 12" paper packs and a sheet of coordinating cardstock to create this card.

When you open the card, a delightful floral panel pops up to surprise the recipient of this pretty card.  (The card mechanism for the pop up was made with Twist Panel Pop-up dies from Karen Burniston)

The Card Front

Let's take a look at the layering techniques I used on the front of the card.

I selected two sheets of paper from the Birds and Berries 6 x 6 pack and cut to 4 3/4" square and 4 1/2" square.  I distressed the edges and layered the smaller piece over the larger piece.  Then I used a honeycomb mask and stenciled the design with Little Birdie's Mixed Media Paste.

Next I randomly cut pieces off the Honey Comb chipboard so that it's shape would be irregular and then lightly painted over the piece with white gesso.  After it was dry, I adhered to the left side of my card.

I selected one of the doiles from the 12 x 12 paper pack and adhered to the front, centering.  Notice that I cut a piece out on the right.  I did this so that my flowers would nestle better.

Sometimes I deconstruct a flower so that I can snug it under the papers and other flowers.  I removed the back two petal layers from this flower and cut them in half so that I could push them under the doily.

I placed my flower piece and added a bed of leaves before adhering the flowers.

I  fussy cut a sentiment from the Elements paper in the 12 x 12 paper pack and adhered to the front. To finish off the  card and give it a shabby appearance I dry brushed white gesso over the flowers and card.

To make the pretty pop up cards inside, I fussy cut images from the Elements Sheet and adhered to scalloped die-cut papers from the collection.

That's it.  I hope that my layering tips will help you with your designs!  Thanks for joining me today.
