Stampin' Up - Colour Creations Blog Hop - Purple Posy

Hello lovely crafters,
it has been so long since I have been able to participate in a Colour Creations blog hop but I wanted to make sure I got in on the final one. Tonight the team are showcasing one of the new In Colors - Purple Posy. It is such a gorgeous colour and there are so many options in the new catalogue for you to chose from. I have used both of these options, Purple Posy Card Stock and Woven Threads DSP which uses all 5 of the new In Colors.

So for this last Colour Creations blog hop I had to go fancy fold.

 I have made a slider pop up card. Quite a fancy name but not hard to make and I thank Youtube and the lovely crafty ladies for your instructions.

The card fold flat so you can put it straight in an envelope. You can see here that I have punched out a little half circle with the 1 1/8" starburst punch so you can pull out your slide.

 I thought having some gorgeous Daisies punched out with the medium daisy punch in the Woven Threads DSP and layer 2 together. Add an In color  faceted dot for bling! Stamp the stems in old ink and fussy cut out and attached them to a piece of acetate to make them look like they are floating in front of the basket and sitting in the the flower box labeled friend.

When you have pulled out your with the little mechanisms put in place your card should stand up all on its own.

Using the Floral Essence stamp set I just love the sentiment and it is just perfect to go along with the word Friend out of the Daisy Lane stamp set.  I stamped that is crumb cake to match the cardstock of the basket backing and punched that out with the 1 inch circle punch and then backed that with a piece of Woven Threads DSP cut out with the Starburst punch.
