Pop Up Brusho Flowers

     This card was made using a pop up die from Stampendous. It usually stands up portrait style but I wanted to try it landscape, it still work, especially with flowers and doesn't try to close. With the addition of patterned paper for the background it fits perfectly for our challenge at CraftyHazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.
      I have several tubs of Brusho and wanted to try the White embossing technique I had seen on Pinterest.
     The image was stamped with Versamark and them embossed with white powder on watercolour card. Brusho were sprinkled over the card and a gentle spritz of water added to make the colour flow. As the images were going to be die cut it didn't matter about over run colour, just that the colours looked good on the images. Once dry all flowers and leaves were die cut ready for assembly.
     The patterned card was cut to size and then using the pop up die the creases and tabs were cut. After cutting it was trimmed to fit an A6 landscape fold card blank, sticking the pop up mechanism inside with care not to stick the tabs down.
     Each flower was added to the tabs to build the bouquet and the leaves were added to the background on foam pads. The addition of one flower to the other side of the card just left the space for a die cut greeting.
     A matted patterned layer on the front with another flower finished the card off, it all folds quite flat so it will post if required.
    Remember CraftyHazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge runs all month and just requires the use of patterned paper on your project.
