Pop Up Card Book Style

Hello everyone... It's been awhile since my last post and I apologize for being inactive.  my bad  :)  

Im here today to share with you my card for Craftin Desert Divas March Mood Board Challenge.  It's a month long challenge and I hope you can join us at CDD Mood Board Event page for March.

And here is what I made for you.

And here is our March Mood Board Photo Inspiration.
Isn't it pretty?

I also made a short vdo showing some details on how I created it 

Below here are some photos tutorial and supplies I used to create this card.

I began by created the background using Sorted Shapes 2 stencil using plaid pattern.  The colors I chose are from those ladies dresses from the mood board photo.  I used all in distress oxide inks in worn lipstick, squeezed lemonade, evergreen bough, mermaid lagoon and shaded lilac.

I did the template for my pop up panel with typing paper.  I folded about an inch at the bottom and then folded in half (picture 1 & 2)
I then pinched the folded corner and put it against the triangle corner to form 90 degree. (picture 3 & 4)

I folded up the paper back to half again and pushed it again my folded card base which is 5 1/2 " square card base and cut away the hang out paper from the edge (picture 1)

Opened it up and you will get this funny looking shape that will determine where can you decorate the panel inside.

I traced it to my pretty pattern paper and cut it with Stitched Scallop dies for my cloud in the sky. At the bottom folded area I used scor tape 1/2 inch for heavy duty use but do left the folded center without any adhesive there.

I put it again the center fold of my panel and made sure that non of the edges are outside the card base.

I adhered one side of the panel down first so that I can made the final adjustment on the other side should it be some parts left out.

And here is the top view.

From there I began to create my elements using the same distress oxide inks with the cloud and the rainbow from Rainbow dies.  I colored the balloon with Koala bear and the birdies with copic markers and fussy cut them out.

Time to assemble them all together.

I made sure that my stamps & dies elements are not out beyond the card base.

And here is the closer look at both panel

And here is how I decorated my card front.

I used Inside Scalloped Square dies for my decorative frame, Happy dies and sentiments from Happy Sentiments and Tiny Treasure stamp.

Hope you like it and give it a try.
