A Pop of Awesomeness - Freshly Made Sketches #283

A new catalogue will be released in June and the retirement list for the out going catalogue has been published.  Having seen the retirement list, I decided to use some retirement products for this sketch challenge with Freshly Made Sketches.

The Night of Navy top fold card is layered with Whisper White card stock which becomes the Art Piece.

I adhered a curvy piece of  retiring "Affectionately Yours DSP" at the bottom and stamped the sentiment from a retiring stamp set "Grateful Bunch" just above the DSP on the left.

On the negative space above the DSP I stamped the stem and leaves from the same stamp set in Black Memento and left it uncoloured.

On a separate piece of Whisper White the large flower was stamped and colored with ink pads and an aqua painter. After fussy cutting it, I  attached it to the card front with a hand made pop-up.

How was the pop-up made?

A one inch by 4" piece of Whisper White cardstock was scored every 1/2" and then fan folded.  I only needed 3 folds, so trimmed the excess off .  One end is adhered to the flower; the other end to the card front, popping the flower up.  This pop up lies flat for card mailing. 

Because there is copper in the DSP, I added copper glitter along the boundary of the DSP and in the center of the flower. The copper glitter was made by adding copper powder with dazzling details

Stamps: Grateful Bunch (retiring)
Inks: Black Memento, Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Tip Top Taupe (retiring)
