Spring Pop Up!

This card started out trying to do something with the paper that I purchased a while ago at Stamped Design in Dover, NH.  I usually like to use blues, pinks and purples but this time decided green is very much a spring color. !  I used the Fifth Avenue SU set for the outside. Copic marker- Chrome Orange, was used  for the flower. MS border punch and nesties for the frame of the flower.  Sizzix "little leaves" was used for the foliage. The picture shows the flower a little dull but Chrome Orange Copic Marker is actually very brillant as well as the paper!

Then you open up the card and it is a pop up card with flowers and butterflies. The style of the card is called an M fold design.   I colored the SU Stipple Butterfly with copic markers,  Chrome Orange and Canary Yellow.  MS butterfly  and fence border punches were used and  the Sizzix EF from SU (the name escapes me but it coordinates with Fifth Avenue Floral). The flowers are held on with acetate cut in 1/4 stripes. Check out Valita's blog at


  1. What a beautiful card. Love the way the way you used the fence border with the flowers popping up.

  2. I love the colors you used! It really looks like Spring! The butterfly is beautiful! Love the "M" Fold!

  3. Love your card. The fence is perfect with the flowers. I haven't done an M fold in awhile. Forgot how great it can look. Very pretty.
