Pop Up Butterflies

Time again for another challenge over on the Butterfly Blog and the letter is P.

#132 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with the Letter P for Pop Up Card.


I have  been looking at lots of Pop Up card Tutorials on You Tube and have several versions to try.
This card is Version I. which is just a simple pop up mechanism.  As usual you will find a Tutorial for you to follow over on the Butterfly blog at the top of the page under  the banner on the card shape  page.

This card uses all the seven elements 
Pop Up Card/Pear/Peach/Periwinkle/ Pattern paper/Pearls/ Butterfly


For the card base I have used a Background Card by Kanban called English Riviera - Roses - Lilac and decorated the front with a peach doily and a butterfly shape from my stash along with peach pearls. The sentiment is by Julie Hickey from her Circle Sentiments stamp set.
The fun is on the inside with the pop up mechanism shown below.

The pop up really is very easy to do . The peach paper is from The Works and the digi dotty paper is by Nitwits from their Lavender collection. The butterflies are really old circa 1986/87 and were salvaged from when we cleared out the parents home. Mum used to do a lot of scrapbooking when my children were small and always had a box of assorted embellishments for them to use when they went for a visit. These butterflies are embossed and were all attached to each other on sheets via small tabs so each one had to be cut away from the others. (The only info on them that I could find on the sheets was the Initals M L P and the dates plus a post code which doesn't exist anymore.) I found four that were the same and mounted them to look as if they are fluttering out of the card as you open it up. The banner was made from a scrap of card that I already had the colour on from an oxide ink pad. The sentiment is by Woodware.
Hope you will come and have a play with this new challenge. It is the last butterfly challenge before the Elves/Pixies/Gnomes/ Imps and Fairies come out to play for the month of December. The butterflies will be back in the New Yr to continue  with the last 10 letters of the alphabet.

You have so many lovely creations and it's a treat to see them all. Thanks for playing in the Snippets Playground. I totally understand your obsession with snippets. When I have cute patterned papers, I just can't stand to throw away those precious little pieces, and I always know there is a pretty and creative way to use them. I wish more people would rescue their scraps and get creative with them. Thank yoU!

I also wanted to mention that I have another challenge blog, and I'd be thrilled to have you link up with us there as well. It's always Anything Goes (Family Friendly, of course) and we are blessed to have AWESOME sponsors (which means awesome prizes). I really hope you will stop by to join us there as well.
