Pleated Center Pop Up Birthday Card

flower pop up birthday card

Another pop up card using the gorgeous flowers from DaPino that I used on my Mother's Day vase mechanical card.

The card has a series of pleats across the center to hold the flowers, which stand straight up when the card is opened flat.

The larger flowers are about 2" and the smaller ones about 1.5". I cut a variety of colors and shapes and mixed them up until I liked the combinations.
