Springy Floral Surprises

Hello there, I have a pretty floral card that we made at my stamp class last month to share today. I really love pop up cards, they have that fun element of surprise when you open them!! Such fun.
I started by stamping a bunch of flowers with the Petite Petals set and punching with the coordinating punch which makes it super quick and easy. I just got my order in when I was designing these, and I had a brand new pack of Strawberry Slush cardstock - why not, I've been trying to embrace the pink lately and I do like the shade of pink more than some of the others. I punched out two 1-3/8" circles and cut a spiral with my paper snips. I attached a mini glue dot to the center, and attached to the inside of my card base. Then I added another mini glue dot to tail end of the circle - closed my card and the spiral is perfectly placed! I repeated it for the second circle. I added my flowers with glue dots also - I put one on each side around the spiral so you have the same view from any way you look at the card. I punched a few leaf stems with the Bird punch and added some sequins from the Gold Sequin Trim.
Here's a closer look at the springy floral spirals - it really does add a fun effect to the card.
A nice surprise for the recipient. For the front of my card, I stamped the Hardwood background stamp onto a piece of Soft Suede. I then cut an oval with the Ovals Collection Framelits, I sponged the edges of both. I popped the base up with dimensionals and attached the oval cut out with Snail. I then added some more flowers and leaves and a sentiment from Sassy Salutations - I love the font in this set, very fun. I hope you like my card, and try making one for yourself!
