30 Apr Mother’s Day Pop Up Card: Flower Bouquet
Mother's day is almost here. It's a great opportunity to show you how much you love your mom by making her a pop up card. So I've been working on a Mother's Day card for a while. The concept was a vase with flowers in it. I made a concept of a really nice round vase, but when I finally put it together, it didn't fully open up as I wanted it to. So I decided to scrap that idea and make a new vase. So here is the new version of a modern glass vase with a bouquet of flowers in it. Here is what the card looks like:
I like the artistic look to the card with everything white against the contrasting green cover. I also made a version where I painted the flowers to give the bouquet some vibrant colors.
The vase has 3 kinds of flowers: roses, stargazer lilies and daisies. The roses came out better than I had hoped. After cutting the rose out, the flower is folded a few times to give it a layered look. The stargazers were difficult to make recognizable, but i'm happy with the way it came out. Here is a closer picture of the flowers:
I made 3 different kinds of flowers so that you can choose and design your own bouquet. If your mom likes roses, you may want to fill the vase with all roses. Here is a video of the card.
