Fancy Fold Step Card

Fancy Fold Step Card
        I love how our blogger friends can inspire us to challenge our creativity.My friend Alice known to many of you as Scrapamondo has recently been sharing lovely step Pop Up Cards...she made them using a die but since none of the sellers in India sell that particular die, I played around with some measurements and hand cut and folded away to create my version of a Fancy Fold Step Card.
Glitter Foam "Happy"
 I used my new Marianne Lily and Forget me not flower dies as  stencils to ink the die cuts to create the blue- white flowers. The Happy is a glitter foam die cut[ Winnie and Walter]
Step Pop Up Card 
Blue- white and a dash of green look good together doesnt it!
Pop Up Card 
The center panel has Tattered lace flowers with foam putty centers[foam putty was borrowed from my kiddo without letting her know!!]. The leaves you see on all my panels are stamped, die cut Heartfelt creations leaves.
Parchment Flowers
My last panel has parchment flowers heat embossed in white with tiny blue forget me not flower branches and a delicate yellow butterfly!
Fancy Fold Card
Here is how the card folds flat for mailing.
I hope you liked my new year card made with tons of new supplies I got during a recent shopping spree at my friend Priya's shop
I dont have a tutorial for my card  as it was just an experiment which turned out right but the talented Selma has a useful template for the 5 step part.
