Paper Pros - Cherry Blossom Tag Book Pop-up

CherryBlossomTagBook

For this month's Paper Pros challenge the theme is Spring Flowers. My project uses the Tag Book Pop-up die set with the pop-up parts cut from a transparency. 

I cut the tags and hinge from a sturdy white cardstock and then used Distress Oxide inks to turn them into a mottled blue. I added a cheerful piece of green polka dot paper (KaiserCraft, from my stash) to the outer ends of the tags and some pink gingham ribbon across the seams.

The Cherry Blossoms are made using the Tree Pop-up die set. I chopped up several trees into branches and added them to the clear panels and to the background of the card.

The Tree Pop-up die set comes with a die to cut 6 flowers at a time. I cut them from white and also from a pink Distress Oxide background. After die cutting I added pink centers using a paintbrush handle and pink ink. The "Hello" greeting was die cut from pink and brown, layered and added to the background.
