Time Well Spent again!

This is a pop up card again in a Papercrafts Magazine but the instructions are not specific at all so it was a lot of trial and error to get things as they should be! As you slide the tab up, the flowers appear. It does not glide as well as it should as I should have masked and stamped the flowers directly on to the stems instead of cutting each out separately.

Making this card has given me a break in between making the swap card fronts! I have used the SAB Stampin' Up! set Friendship Blooms for the swirls and the other stamps are from our gift from SU last year - Time Well Spent which is going to be a Level 3 Hostess set in the next catalogue! Tomorrow is the last day to take advantage of the Sale-a-Bration promotion!
All supplies by Stampin' Up! except that the scalloped rectangle was done with using the Nestabilities die.
Card: Taken with Teal, Certainly Celery, watercolour paper and Whisper White
Ink: Watercolour crayons, markers and Basic Brown
Stamps: Time Well Spent, Friendship Blooms and Paisley

This is just lovely Jean! Glad you figured out how to do it - it can be so frustrating when the instructions arent very specific!

This is such a cute card. Jean, you defintely have a knack with pop-up (surprise) type of cards. Can't wait to see what you create next.

Wow, this card is just gorgeous. I love this set we got from S/Up - I have been using it and can't wait for it to become a hostess gift for our customers!
