Romantic Sunset

This week I decided to play with moving paper mechanism instead of my usual pop-up card.
The card depicts a lakeside sunset where a couple sharing the tranquility and beauty of the moment.

First glance at the card where the couple are holding hands. 
Once the doily (tab) is pulled up, they lean towards each others shoulders and the sentence "Treasure each moment together" is revealed.
My first attempt in creating an animation to demonstrate how the effect of the pull mechanism.

Rose Bouquet Pop-Up card

A rose bouquet card for different occasions.
I used Cheery Lynn Designs Alison's Ribbons (B335) dies to cut the lace frame around the card.  The delicate cut out is perfect fit for a small size card.

A video on how the flowers elevated.

A look at the card when it is opened flat on the table.  The rose bouquet is tilted towards the center.

Butterfly on my Gerbera Daisy

A pop-up card made with inspiration from my Gerbera Daisy plant.  The card is depicting a common scene where butterflies will hover over my daisy (minus the Forget-Me-Not flowers).  I don't remember seeing a real Forget-Me-Not plant and these are my take after researching the plant on the internet.

Another angle of the card.

Tiki Bar Templates and Video Instruction

I have attempted to document instructions on how I make some of cards but find them too lengthy and decided video is the best way to explain them.  This is my first attempt at making an instructional video and my apology for any unintended mistakes.   Please feel free to comment on them as your feedback will help me to improve on future videos.   Also the link to the original Tiki Bar post with more photos of the card.

Tiki Bar Beach Party

Today, I made a pop-up invitation card to a beach party.  Both the templates and the instruction to make the Tiki bar pop up will be included in a follow-up post.

This is the decorated Tiki Bar after the card has been opened.
This is the front of the card.   I used two different sets of dies to cut the hibiscus flowers.  The flowers on the card base are flat to ensure the card is level once it is opened.
The top upper left flowers are in 3D (close-up look below).  

A tag with the details of the party is tied to the card base with an anchor : )
