KSS - Mother's Day Pop-Up Card

My Kitchen Sink Stamps sponsored pop-up Mother's Day card has turned out even more beautiful than I envisioned it would! Thanks to inspiration from my crafty friends Frances Byrne and Lois Bak who work on the Karen Burniston Design Team, I have been experimenting with and finally mastering some of the Karen Burniston pop-up dies that have been in my collection for over a year. I watched over and over Karen's You Tube video to learn to correctly fold and place the pop-up pieces. I think I have it down now!

Today I combined images for KSS Butterflies Multi Step Clear Stamps and dies from the Upsy Daisy Pop-Up by Karen Burnison and I am really thrilled with the results.

When you have a very special mother, she has to receive a very special Mother's Day card! Don't you agree??

This is an A2 sized card and pictured below is the front.

Here is what you see when you open the card.

Color Recipe for the Butterflies:

Layer 3 Versafine Onyx Black
Layer 2 Stampin' Up Blushing Bride stamped twice
Layer 1 PTI Sweet Blush stamped twice

The inside designer paper from Jen Hadfield's Patio Party for American Crafts has pretty gold foiled butterflies which are hard to see in my photo, but I added gold metallic mats on two of the butterflies and on the sentiment panel to match the.

I also added wire antenna on the two cut out butterflies. I think my mother will get a kick out of this pop-up surprise this year!

I am entering today's design in the following challenges:
