Easy Pop Up card with Abstract Art

With a new catalog coming out June 1, my team is in full "swap mode".  We each make 10 identical cards and send them to 9 team members (keeping one for ourselves). 

This is my swap to show our new In-Colors for 2018-2020.

The card is all stamping with just a 1/2 x 5 1/2 strip of the new In-Color designer paper.  

So I used all 5 new colors - Blueberry Bushel, Call me Clover, Pineapple Punch, Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove on the front of the card.  

The 2nd green is Clover just stamped off (so you tap tap tap on the ink pad, then stamp on a scrap piece, then stamp on your card and it comes out lighter).  With the "stamping off" technique you have a LOT more colors than you think!

The card front is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 (whisper white), the base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2.  

Inside each card is the die cut butterfly from the matching dies.  I used all 5 colors for these butterflies.  The sentiments are all Blueberry Bushel.

Super easy pop up card to make. Above you can see 3 more pop up butterflies.  Take your base and score in half as usual, this is the blue dashed line that folds up as a "valley".  Make 2 other score lines (the red lines) - measure 1 1/4" from the left and right of the fold line and 1 1/4" down the fold line.  Push these folds out, so they are a mountain fold.  

Test run the butterfly so when inserted you can't see it from the outside (see the top image with all the cards...all the butterflies are hidden).  Attach glue dots to the very edge of the butterfly (I used 3 dots) and secure your butterfly inside.  When the card opens, the butterfly pops out.  

I'm creating an instruction set with many (more) photos, tip, how to's and extra projects. Free to anyone on my team, or if you make any purchase (no matter how small or large) it will come to you as a color PDF file!

Fun, don't you think?  So easy.  Once your card is all folded, stamped inside, with the butterfly, put glue on the card front and attach the stamped front (don't put glue on the stamped card as you might put glue in that top corner (how would I know that LOL?!)

You can buy all 5 in colors at 10% off in my online store until May 31 end of day.  June 1 when the catalog goes live you can buy them all.. but the 10% goes away.  

Here's the whole color set along with the continuing 2017-2019 in colors.

Wednesday June 6 I'm part of a 20 person Coast-Coast blog hop where you will see all these new In-Colors used in many different sets, new and carried over.  I'll be showing you how to create an Apron box in these colors and a few more goodies. See you June 6 at 9pm ET (or 6pm PT).
