I have a few cards to share with you today.

I was hanging out on Pinterest and saw this beautiful card by Athena and knew I wanted to CASE it!

This next card was inspired by Jen McGuire and her Pop Up Shadow Box cards, 
really cute and FUN!

This will be entered into the Scor Pal Challenge, Soft And Subtle.
And the Scrapy Land, Anything Goes!

Using 2 pieces of card stock measuring 6 1/4 x 5 1/2, score each one at 1/2" and 1". 
Flip, and score again at the other end at 1/2" and 1".  
This is what will create that zig zag fold when you assemble together.  
This also creates the shadow box and 'popping' movement.

Paper Smooches; Foliage 2 dies.
Poppystamps; Dogwood Blossom Corner die.
Spellbinder; Classic Ovals die.

I used the Altenew stamp and die set; Peony Sprig.  
I picked up such a clever tid bit from Jen McGuire check out the 24:51 minute mark, you'll be glad you did!  I did this with the Peony die here, the original die cut nestles in nicely.  Cool, right?!?!
My background is stamped in Calypso Coral ink and I used the Hero Arts Holiday Plaid stamp, this is great for making such pretty backgrounds!  
I'll never hunt for another oh just perfect color plaid paper...ever!!!

Copic Markers.
Clear Embossing Powder.
