Garden Bench Pop Up Mother's Day Card

Hello my crafty friends. It's time for Karen Burniston's April Designer Challenge, where she challenged her Design Team to create a project with 'Flowers'. This time of year I'm craving 'green growing things' so I enjoyed creating a Pop Up card for our eldest daughter for Mother's Day. The front is nice and simple (but still sparkly!) because all the fun is on the inside ...

I did a walkthrough of my card on YouTube with all the details:   

The little fairy from the Garden Charms shows up better in real life than in the pictures so I added a close up shot below.

The Garden Bench Pop Up comes with little pop up dies that can be used to add pillows (the pillow die is included in the set) but I used one of them to pop up the little flower pot on the bench. I used mostly the Garden Charms and the Backyard Charms and you can see the stacked flower pots behind the bench. NOTE:  A few of the flower pots were die cut from recycled stamp packaging that I'd been saving. 

This card is larger than A2, it measures 6 x 4.5" but the Garden Bench can fit in a wide A2 card (5.5 x 4.25"). I just prefer to make something other than A2 sized cards after so many years of making them.

One more look ...

I have the rest of the Design Team linked on the right side of my blog, and I hope you will check out what they came up with for the challenge. Karen Burniston will have her post tomorrow (Wednesday) on her BLOG.
