Garden Whimsy pops up

We also created a card using Garden Whimsy & found a delightful card at SCS which Miss Minx has created which had a little something extra inside - a pop-up butterfly which had been rock n' rolled. The pop-up is a mountain fold: mark with a pencil 2" either side of the centre fold & 2" down the centre fold. Fold in half & using your ruler run a bone folder from the top 2" mark to the mark 2" down the centre fold. If necessary repeat for the other side. See pictures below.

I thought this was a perfect card as quite simple stamping & the one wee mountain fold was the only tricky piece. It also meant we could look at stamping with markers and as only two were involved it was easy to comprehend no matter what your stamping ability.
