Helping Me Grow, Floating Pop-up Technique, Birthday Card

Here's a very fun and easy technique I learned on Tuesday at Terri's Technique Night. 

The base of the card is a folded half sheet of Soft Suede cardstock. The set used here is "Helping Me Grow". We stamped the flowers on a 4" x 5-1/4" Crumb Cake cardstock. 

The images were stamped using Soft Suede ink.  

The bee and the dragonfly were die cut using the "Detailed Dragonfly" thinlits dies and gold metallic cardstock.  

The dragonfly on the inside appears to be flying.  It's set in place using a piece of Window Sheet.   That small piece of Window Sheet is cut 1/2" x 3" and scored at 1/2".  That 1/2" section is hidden under the flower image on the backside of the front of the card.  The dragonfly was taped to it using Tearaway tape.  You need a strong tape for that.

The bumblebee on the front was just taped in place with regular tape runner.  

Wink of Stella was added to the flower on the front to get it some color.  The camera didn't pick it up very well.  But it does add some sparkle and shine to the flower.  It's a quick way to color in a flower image.  

The words on the inside are from the "Stylized Birthday" stamp, using Soft Suede ink.

I told you it's a simple technique!!  Isn't it cool to see the dragonfly looking like it's suspended in midair? 

I hope you have fun with this technique!

Thank you for stopping by today,
