Pop Up Dies + YouTube Video

Hi there! Today I'm really happy to be sharing this particular post with you. I've been using Nuvo Shimmer Powders on a butterfly pop up die and I must say, it's beautiful!
The card itself is quite simple but you can still achieve a wow factor with just a few products.
The die sets I've used today are Pretty Pop Ups - Butterfly Blush, and Never Stop Dreaming.
  1. Die cut the butterfly blush outer die and then cut into it with the intricate detail, once with watercolour card and another with white thick card. Pick out all the pop up elements with your pokey tool. 
  2. Die cut never stop dreaming in black cardstock 5 times and layer up. Cut out a small piece of white card and put behind 'nerver stop. 
  3. Using shimmer powders on your watercolour butterfly die cut. Pink at the top, red in the middle and yellow at the bottom. Spray with water to activate and allow to dry. Repeat for a more vibrant colour. 
  4. Take a medium size foam pad and layer up 5 times. Place the foam stack in the middle of your butterfly die cut and attach to your card blank. 
  5. Add a sentiment over the area on the butterfly die cut where the foam pads are. 
  6. Bend into shape so the butterflies appear to float above your card. 
I've made another modern card using the same Pop-up set but in a completely different way. A clean and elegant design I hope you like.
  1. Die cut the outer edge butterfly 5 times into a white panel measuring 4.5" x 6.5"
  2. Die cut 6 butterfly outer panels - 2 of each in Navy, Ocean and Arctic Blue.
  3. Die cut white panel, cutting the intricate detail into them.  
  4. Mat and layer navy cardstock onto 5"x7" cardblank 
  5. Inlay your coloured butterflies and your white detailed butterflies onto the card front. 
  6. Adhere sentiment. 
Card 3 using the Pretty Pop-ups, Flourishing Florals. 
  1. Create a cardblank using a hexagon layering die set. 
  2. Mat and layer with with Ballerina Pink and Bright white card and adhere to cardblank.
  3. Die cut the florish pop-up in Ballerina pink and attack to your card. 
  4. Attach sentiment and sequins to finish.
