DCRU Tuesday Challenge/Pop Up

Today was my post on DCRU for the Tuesday Challenge, which followed my Monday post for a Main Tutorial ...and the subject was Pop Up Cards. Simple ones. There are so many styles from quick and easy to detailed, laborious wonderful pop up cards. Here is a Blooming Flower Pop up showing the inside which opens to a flower that literally blooms right before your eyes. It is an easy card to make. See the DCRU tute for details.
Here are two simple pop up cards. The front has been decorated with Cricut's New Arrival cartridge for the baby theme, and I have used several rubber stamps and a Sizzix die cut for sentiments on the outside. And oh how easy to use pre-printed pre-made cards.
This is a sample of the inside ... a small insert has been glued to the inside of the base card that has a "shelf" and it is on that shelf the pop up art is placed. I have added some alphabet letters as hang off sentiments.
Thanks for looking and I hope you will read my article on the Die Cuts blog.

Really enjoyed the flower pop-up you did for the challenge. The way it layered and unfolded it put me in the mind of a peony. Just love a peony. Great job on your Main and the challenge. It was a tuffy for me but I'm going to try it again real soon.
