Ann got out a 4″ square of Thick Basic White because she thought it would hold up well to the Stampin’ Blends and folds. In hindsight, 3-15/16″ or 3-3/4″ might have been a little better choice. That would give a little more room for the borders.

Coloring with the blends require a steady hand. It was easier to color the ones that were popped up but she chose not to pop up everything possible.

Here’s all the colors of Stampin’ Blends that we used – plus we’ll put them down in the supply list. You could use markers if you prefer.

And you could flip up all the images if you’d like.

You see, this card was all planned around the Pretty Pop-Ups Dies featured on page 17 and 173 of the current Stampin’ Up! catalog. They’re very unique, don’t you think?

We could’ve picked any greeting that would fit the 1-1/2″ free area below, but thought this one from the Simply Succulents set would be just right.
