Red cherry blossoms pop up card

See how the flowers pop up when the card is opened! I just love how it looks! :)

CNY007

I must say that this must be my most favorite Chinese New Year cards for this year....I simply adore it because this is one of my experiments with making pop up flowers. I've done the simple pop up lotus flower already and now I've done the seven flowers pop up card! Yay! I've changed the flowers a bit, plus I added some decorations on the inside of the flowers to make it look like a cherry blossom. I just love watching it bloom up when I open the card!! It's so exciting! :) Funny how simple things like this can excite me so much! Silly me! hehehe! LOL!

I made this design on a smaller sized card, but it can also be done on a bigger sized card, no problem at all......this is because the flowers can be made in different sizes according to the size of the card. This card comes with a matching soft pink handmade envelope.

Thank you so much to my dear friends who have inspired me to do this!! Appreciate it so much......especially to Michael.... :) I wouldn't have dared to do this without your support!!! LOL!

Hi Juhi! Thank you for visiting! Yes! I love to experiment with new materials for my card design whenever I get the chance to do so, as I tend to get bored easily using the same material all the time...hehehe!LOL!
