Flower card お花のカード

Pop-up flower card

Today is my sister’s birthday and this year I decided to make her card myself.

After some research, I chose to make this flower card. There are various examples of people making similar cards on the internet and YouTube. Please check out the links at the end of this post if you are interested.

The technique requires some effort and a lot of patience but result is much better if you take your time with it.

When you open the card, the flowers bloom. The effect is almost like time-lapse photography. I was really pleased with the results but as I said, it took a lot of trial and error to get it right.

I also added lace finishing to the petals and dancing butterflies with acetate. In retrospect, I should have made the flying butterflies larger.

It was difficult to show the card’s effect in pictures,  so I made a video this time!

I hope she likes it. Happy birthday my lovely sister!
