3D Pop-up Box card.

The new theme over at my Butterfly Challenge  is
'Ugly Bug Ball'
and is a tribute to my Mum.
It is also my sister's birthday today.
Happy Birthday Sis.
I have already shown the card I made and sent to her.
I decided to make a 3D Pop-up box card
so that I could incorporate as many images
as possible onto the card to inspire you
for the challenge.
I used a sheet of  green SU card to make the base
and followed excellent instructions on Janine Quinn's blog
I used  images from Polka Doodles Bonbon Belles digital CD rom
to create the background on all the flaps and sides of the box
I printed out several of the toadstool images and fussy cut them
to make the different  height layers
for the insects to sit on inside  the box.
Insects are digital clip art from Digi Stock Design

I haven't taken the time to make one of these but since seeing yours I am not sure I should. This is an outstanding UB Ball. The lady bugs, butterflies, dragonflies and hop grassers ( as the children said when they were young) an outstanding work of art. Blessings Carole
