How Neat is That Hop! {CLOSED}

Welcome to the How Neat is That Hop and to my blog!  You should've arrived from Amy's blog, Love to Crop, if you want to start from the beginning, please visit Monica.

We were asked to create an interactive card and I choose to make a pop-up card, which I have never created.  It's a birthday card for my Mom, her bday is next week :)
Here's what I came up with:




  • Paper:  DCWV Summer Dream
  • Bling: Gems by Darice and K&Co., German Glass Glitter by Meyer-Import
  • Ribbon: Michael's dollar bin
  • Stamps: Flower by Hampton Art, Happy Birthday by BasicGrey
The pop-up butterfly and the top note are from Penny Duncan.  She has amazing files!  I cut the butterfly using packaging acetate.  I added Aleene's Fast Grab Glue to the edges and springled on the German glass glitter.  This glitter is GORGEOUS!  It's a chunky glitter at 70 grit, love it!


Your next stop is the super talented Brynn from Flair & Frills!

Here's my blog candy, 5yds of each color.  Please leave a comment, I will choose a winner on Monday, August 1st.

Pretty! Look at all that detail?! ...what are the corner embellishments? are they resin flowers? and if they are, where did you get them?

To say that this card is beautiful is an understatement ~ truly a piece of art! Bet your Mom will want to frame it....:O) Couple of questions here. Does the glitter rub off and did you cut the acetate with the Cricut? Thanks for posting this card. You did such a wonderful job creating it! (PS - love that God is in the details....:O)
