Petite Posse Challenge #2

Jessica has posted her last challenge as June hostess over on the Papertrey Posse blog. This time around the challenge is all about folds and using a fun technique to fold your card instead of just the standard square or rectangle. I decided to use the free standing pop up card for this challenge. A tutorial for this type of card can be found here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/freestandingpopupcard/
For this card, I cut and scored a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock and stamped my clouds onto it. I then die cut the white tag and threaded it with Simpy Chartreuse ribbon, added my Orange Zest buttons and adhered it to the Bermuda Bay piece. For the pop-up part I used a piece of Simply Chartreuse cardstock and stamped it with Polka Dot Basics in Versamark Dazzle ink. I then cut a circle from Orange Zest cardstock and ran it through my Cuttlebug with my Sunshine impression plate. I folded my circle in half, adhered it to the chartreuse piece and tied on a piece of twine. For the focal point I used Up, Up and Away and paper pieced the kite. I distressed the edges, matted it on Bermuda Bay cardstock and adhered it to the charteuse piece. The first time I saw one of these cards, I was a little intimidated, but it really is quite easy to make and so much fun! If you would like to play along, head on over to the Papertrey Posse blog (papertreyposse.blogspot.com ) and check out the details.
