POP-UP CARDS CHALLENGE AT THE CUTTLEBUG SPOT


i started going back to the gym on monday, president's day, after been out for a month. it was not as bad as i thought it would be. wish me luck in staying put, lol.

i did not post yesterday the cuttlebug spot challenge post since i had the my pink stamper february design team project. 
this week's is a pop-up card challenge and after looking around the web for ideas, i decided to make what they called a 

Free Standing Pop-Up
5.5 inch tall when closed
you can find the instructions on how to make this beauty 
it will be better than me trying to explain it, lol.
i bet you will be happy to i sent you there.

 the paper is from dcwv, mi casa collection. such a pretty paper/cardstock.

the sentiment is a clear stamp from a my pink stamper stamps collection called

Faithful Sayings

the butterflies are really pretty. they cost me a dollar for a lot of them but can't remember where i got them :(

the corners were done with a fiskars corner punch, the ones that you twist. isn't that font on the sentiment gorgeous? and the sentiment itself? love it. all we can do is trust in the Lord. that is what i do anyway. :)

my other team mates have their projects up and nilda has them all together HERE for you to get inspired and play along in this weeks challenge.

go and have some fun. 
nilda also has a link up where you can find more tutorials for other types of pop-up cards. 
fun to make. 
love the interaction of these cards.

hugs to all of you!
