Flower Patch and Fun Fold Pop Up Card

This week is a Color Challenge at the Pals Paper Arts site.  I combined that with a Fun Fold Card design that I wanted to try. Love these bright colors - they are one of my favorite color combinations!  Scroll down to see the inside of this card which pops open.

Oops!  I just realized that I used Bermuda Bay instead of Tempting Turquoise but you get the idea!

Below you can see the card when it is opened up and ready to stand on it's own!

Next check out a close up of the left inside panel.

And here is the right inside panel.

This card has a pocket.  A person could insert a gift card, a tea bag, or a pull out insert for an extra message or photo.  You can see the insert that I made here.

This is not your Clean and Simple (CAS) card but it will surely delight the person who receives it!

Card Recipe
Stamp Set 
 - Flower Patch, Kinda Eclectic
Ink - Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay
Cardstock - Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Brights Collection DSP
Accessories  - Flower Fair Framelits, Circles Collections Framelits, 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch, Brights Candy Dots

Card inspired by this blog post from Linda Pittman.  It took me a bit to figure out how the card folded.  Let me know if you want me to make a video showing the basic construction.
