My First Pop Up Card


I decided that I wanted to try a pop up card.  I hadn't made one yet, and decided that my Mom would really like one for Mother's Day.  I finished it yesterday, but I keep adding more embellishments onto it!  So, I had to finally decide that it was done, so I took the pictures.
 

 
I cut the flower pot freehand.  The flowers were made using the Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge and some Papertrey Ink Dies.  I just used an oval paper punch to cut the leaves out.  A few buttons, some bling and butterflies finished it off.  There are lots of pop up dots.  So, the card, when folded, doesn't lay completely flat.  I think I will tie a bow around it to keep it shut.
