Flowery Seventy

Hello everyone and happy happy birthday to my lovely mum who is celebrating a big birthday today!

I always make a couple of cards for my mum and try to do something a bit different for one of them. This year, I decided to try an ‘impossible card’ – a fun pop up card made from a single piece of cardstock which has simply been cut in three places! I know, impossible, right?

Well, it’s actually incredibly easy! I found a great video from Sam over at Mixed Up Crafts. She explained it so well that I made this at the first attempt and it didn’t take long at all. It took longer to colour that wreath!

Reverse of my impossible card!

Once I had the pop up base sorted, I decided to use one of my mum’s favourite dies from Memory Box and coloured it with mu Twinkling H2o paints. I stuck it to a die cut circle before adhering it to the pop up base card. I then used some old Quickutz dies for the ’70’ and voila! My first impossible card!

I’m entering this into the April Memory Box challenge (flowers), the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge (flower power) and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (anything goes).

Thanks for stopping by!
