Cuttlebug Challenge Easter Lillies

seven flower pop up card

I've been sleeping in this week (until 8!) because my kids are on vacation. It's really been cutting into my crafting and blogging time. :)

Sooooooo....I took a little lazy woman's shortcut today and re-made a pop up card design to fit in with the Cuttlebug Challenge this week, which is to make a pop up card.

I made Easter lillies, embossed some of them with the cuttlebug, and left some plain. They are lightly penciled with green colored pencil. The green stamens are just cut separately and glued into the centers of the flowers.

I love the pop up flower card and this new spin is very nice. Great idea to make the flowers look like Eater Lilies. I'm going to have to CASE that!

Wow, your version of this is the most beautiful I've seen done! The embossing and the added stamens on the flowers really make this look spectacular!
