Heartfelt Thanks!

TY002

:)))) I am currently in love with this card! hehehehe! Why? It's the colors.....it's just because of the colors, mainly.....and maybe because of the laces and bows of ribbons idea. I made this card for my Mom's friend. She wanted a thank you card.

She didn't request for a pop up but my Mom wanted me to make one anyways because she loves pop ups hehehe......at first I couldn't decide on what kind of pop up to make....then after some serious thought, I came up with this one. It's something I've never done before....and have never seen anyone doing so. What I did was, I weaved the stems of the flowers to the pop up. It's so much fun doing this way rather than gluing them the usual way behind the pop up vase of basket. This way, I get to arrange the flowers easily and it sort of forms a basket like pattern on the pop up. Then I colored it a bit on the edges with colored pencil. Loving this technique and hopefully can use it for other pop ups in future. :)

I love the colors in this, but my favorite part is how you framed the greeting with the flowers and leaves...it's perfect!

Hi Sandi! Thank you dear!! Yes, I love that part too...it was difficult to decide at first how to arrange the flowers and the leaves, especially what type of flowers and leaves plus how many of them would be enough. In the end, I decided to lessen the quantity and I was satisfied with the look :).

I was just going through your blog to see if I missed anything lately, and I was shocked to see that I commented on this card and didn't mention the incredible basket weave you did on the pop-up....it's beautiful!

Thanks Sandi! Actually, the pop up basket weave flowers for the card came later on after you commented. At first I only made the card without the pop up. Then, when I finally got an idea of how to do the pop up that I uploaded the photos of the pop up in this post. That's how you missed it! hehehe! Sorry about that! :)
