Pop Up Garden Card Tutorial
Hi friends, Sharing my DT project for Crealies showcasing their gorgeous rubber stamps.I made a Pop Up Box card  with more than a dozen  stamped flowers swaying beautifully in a burlap covered Pop Up Basket !

When  you want to quickly color a bunch of images without spending hours together watercoloring is a fabulous option! And heat embossing the images before watercoloring makes it even easier to keep the colors within the lines.
I stamped and heat embossed the images in gold  and watercolored them using Zig Watercolor Brush Pens .
These are the Crealies stamps I used. I love the delicate designs and quality of the Crealies stamps!

 Later fussy cut out the flowers ...you dont have to be super accurate when making such a card as you can use a bit of green between the leaves and flowers to mimic foliage.

Pop Up Box Cards are fun designs you can adapt to suit your theme. I conceptualized a basket of flowers with a rustic look and so made a horizontal boxthe Here are the dimensions on instructions to make this one.
You will need Card stock :two pieces 7 x 2 inches and two pieces 5.5 x 2 or slightly less than two inches

Score the long 7 inch strips at 1/2  and 2.5 inch from one end

Score the short strips at 1/2 and 5 inch

Stick the short tab of the other strip to complete a box.
Fold the box down to make sure your gluing is correct and you have a structure which folds perfectly flat

Take the scored short strips and fold the side tabs in opposite directions- this tiny step will  make your Pop Up Card more sturdy.

Your Pop Up Card is ready to embellish!
You can use strips of acetate to stick the flowers and add them to your Pop Up Card dividers. The pearl sprigs were simply wound around the dividers and sway beautifully as the card folds and unfolds!
