Pop-up Butterfly

Whenever I give someone a pop-up card, it always seems to get a 'wow'....and there's something about receiving a pop-up card, that makes you open and close it again and again, even when you know what's coming!
I had a request to teach a pop-up class for my Technique Classes, and this is one of the cards I came up with. Quite simple on the outside:

I just love the Big Shot Butterflies die. It makes a beautifully shaped butterfly, in 4 different sizes.
Inside is the largest butterfly on a pop-up mechanism:

The pop-up piece is just a triangle of cardstock, and the butterfly is attached to one half of the 'V', so it stands up when the card is open.
Isn't this a gorgeous colour combination? Pear Pizazz, Blushing Bride, Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla and Early Espresso.
The stamp sets I have used are Elements of Style, Bliss (Sale-a-Bration set) and Afterthoughts (Level 1 Hostess set).

I'll be back soon to show you the other pop-up card!

    I agree, the colours work well together. Pretty card.
