Butterfly pop-up card


I had such a day, I missed out posting yesterday.  Tsk, Tsk.  But I finished my card from WOYWW day and wanted to share it, since I can’t share what I was working on.

Here is a closer view of the front – the card is quite thick, between the flowers on the front and the surprise inside, so I think I will work on perfecting the idea a bit more.  Right now I am thinking it needs to be a side open, and a the side scored so it is thicker, not just a fold.  It does fit in an envelope, but I wouldn’t want to mail it!

The little bit of ribbon is the hint to what happens when you open it up…

And then when you pull the ribbon…

and finally a bit of an angle

All the Mariposa stack.

Now, on with the daily chores….
