Pop Up Card - Growing Flower Card and Tutorial


Pop Up Card Flower Pot
This is the card I made for Mothers Day. Its a pop up Growing flower Card.
Pop Up Mothers Day Card

The outside of the card has a handmade rose made using heart shapes[ Check out Heart Punch Rose Flower Tutorial] and corner flowers made out of circles.
Pop Up card Tutorial
The Inside of the card reveals a flower pot and the plant grows with the flower rising up on opening the card as the stem pops out!
The mechanism is the same as the pop up Banner card.Here is the tutorial for the Pop up Card mechanism used in this card. The only variation is in the shape of the base piece and the banner.While making the pole piece give it enough length to insert some leaves . Avoid making the stem too long as otherwise if your flower is too heavy it will droop forward on opening the pop up card.
The flower which is popping up from the pot is a flat folding flower made using Punched hearts.Here is the tutorial to make this 3 D Punched Heart flower. I have used punch flowers and butterflies around the pop up mechanism.

Here is the side view showing how the pop up card functions.

  3. I like the idea with the flower pot! And I like the butterflies too! Especially after I saw you using them so much, now I'm thinking I have to go buy myself a paper punch like that.
