Daisy Pop-Up Birthday Card

Hello~  I've got a pop-up card to share with you today using lots of dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
This was made for my sweet mother-in-law's birthday back in April and I'm just now getting around to sharing it.  Do you ever do that?  Create cards that you don't get around to sharing or sometimes never share?  My card file is full of them!  Anyway, here it is and I hope you enjoy it.

This is the front of the card using a couple of landscape die and the ECD Daisy.  The bee is an old Quickutz die and the sentiment from General Sentiments is stamped on a Stitched Fishtail Banner.

 Moving on to the inside where all the fun is, I started by using the Lots Of Pops die to build the pop-up section.  If you've never created a pop-up card before let me say, do not be intimidated.  The pop-up die makes creating them so easy to build on and the directions are so easy.  The design ideas are limitless so just let your imagination take over and go for it!
 Here, I added a trio of daisies to the background layer and I added a folded banner that I attached to the middle layer using strips of clear acetate to give it some height. ETA: The hills are created using Stitched Hill Dies.
On the front layer I used ECD Barrel Basket and filled it with Garden Notes Ivy and two of the sweet Birds from Joset's designs. I further added strips of grass in graduating sizes on each pop-up layer.  I added color to the daisies, birds, basket, grass and ivy using Distress Inks.
A closer look at all that dimension.

I hope you'll be inspired by today's project to make a pop-up card to brighten someone's day. The look on their faces when they open them is pure delight!

I'll be entering this card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Monday Challenge ~ Little Critters
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything goes

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit
