Hugs and Blooms
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Crafty Friends,

I am so excited to be sharing a card I made using dies from the newest release from Poppystamps! I just love our Pop-Up Easel collection, and the Floral Vase Pop Up Easel Set is my very favorite! Take a look!


This card is the sweetest little vase and floral blooms design that can both lie flat to be mailed and then pop up for a fun 3D effect. All the science and math of figuring out how to make a pop up easel has been done for you. You just cut out the pieces, fold on the scored lines, and add your vase and flowers. SO easy to create, and you will never make the same card twice. I did mine in a pale dove gray vase and bright, pinks and magentas for a pop of Valentine color. I used the flowers that remind me of tiny cosmos and coneflowers. You might create yours with the daisies and leaves. I can't wait to try a few more combinations.


Once your folded base pieces are cut and folded, the combination of leaves and blooms gives you so many options to be creative. I used shades or dark and light greens for the leaves, then cut out a few extra to tuck behind a few of the flowers.


Here's the surprise! Pop up the vase and reveal a secret message inside! I used the Playful Hugs, cut in bright pink, magenta, and white. It fits perfectly inside the vase too!



Thanks so much for joining us today!
