One of today's U Stamp with Dawn & Friends Cards with Cool Moves projects was a spiral pop up card. I've never made one of those before so I thought I'd give it a go. I used the Flight of the Butterfly stamp set and my Cottage Wall papers. Quite a fun card to put together but what I really struggled with was getting good photos, especially of the inside! It's very grey, damp and miserable here today so the light is awful and I had to resort to the light tent.
The card measures 12 cms square and is made with SU! Pale Plum CS. I swiped Razzleberry ink around the patterned paper panel before gluing that to the card front. After punching the butterfly I ran an embossing stylus down both sides of the body to pop the wings up. Then I cut a dimensional in half and put one half under each wing - leaving the backing paper on - which means the wings stay popped up. I also stamped a butterfly border on the envelope to match.
This photo shows the inside with the spiral pop up element. Because the two middle butterflies can be seen from above and below, I stamped and cut out two and glued them back to back.
I swiped Old Olive ink around a panel of patterned paper and glued that to the back of the card and this is where I shall write my message.
