Thanks...a floral pop-up

Hello, Alicia with you today.  I have created a card with a multitude of dies from numerous companies.  I believe it all comes together nicely.  The front boast Tutti Designs Swirly Thanks layered on top of a Frantic Stamper Stitched Rounded Rectangle.
I added some ribbon and inked the edges.  I did not want to get too ornate and spoil the surprise.

And wow!  I used several Cheery Lynn dies to decorate the pop-up and inside of the card.  I love Mehndi Botanical collection and own most of them.  As for the card base, I have so many non Christmas uses for my Karen Burniston Snowman Twist Circle Pop-up dies.  The mechanism and circles included are so versatile.

A tip I have about these botanicals as with any three-dimensional florals is to manipulate the edges and distress the cuts and embossing.  It adds life to your flowers and stems.  Some use a padded mat and tools but I find my fingers usually work just fine.


The pop up flower is actually the Cheery Lynn Mandala Doily 1 to which I added a circle of paper behind the center.
