A Basket of Crocus ~ Diamond Pop Up Card

Our Polkadoodles Design Team Challenge this week was to use Flowers and a different Shaped Card and it was certainly a fun challenge!  

I selected the pretty 'Crocus' from The Darling Buds Collection for my image and made her into a Diamond Pop Up card.  

After printing her and coloring with Copic markers I carefully hand cut her out and set her aside while I made the card base.  I used Polkadoodles Sweet Tweet 6 x 6 paper pack for the flower patterned paper on all of the sides except the top.  For the top diamond shape, I used Polkadoodles craft stencil Magical Grasses and several coordinating shades of distressed oxides.  

Once I had the pop up card assembled, then I secured the flower girl by gluing her at her feet and waist and adding two small foam squares behind her head to raise it for added dimension.  Lastly I die cut three miscellaneous small leaves and added those along with a silk flower on the bottom diamond base for the card to rest on when opened.
