How to Make a Pop-Up Card With Stitched Leaves Dies

Oh the surprise when this card is opened! It looks pretty normal on the outside, but a bouquet of leaves pop up in the center! Another cool thing about this card is that it's base is made with designer series paper. It's cute and another fun one to make!

Inspiration for this card comes from Ronda Wade at Creating Success with Ronda. She made a Butterfly Pop-Up Card.

Here's the front:

HOW TO MAKE A FALL SHAKER CARD

It's starting to feel like Fall - that bit of crispness in the air; the cool mornings; shorter days.  I'm in the mood to use Fall colors in my card making.  How about you?  I've made this Fall shaker card using Blackberry Bliss, Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody, and Mossy Meadow card stock.  The little Mason Jar Shaker Dome is filled with small leaves punched with the Autumn Punch Pack. The star is the bouquet made with leaves that were die cut with the Gathered Leaves Dies.  Sentiment is from the Gather Together stamp set.  Buy them together as a bundle (Gather Together Bundle) and save 10%!
