Free As a Bird Corner Pop Up Card

The new Annual catalogue is finally here and finally can display some of the wonderful stamps and DSP as well as ribbons and embellishments.
The Free As A Bird stamp set with its coordinating DSP is one of these gorgeous bundles and I used them to make this Corner Pop Up card.
I have not made this particular fun fold before, but I found several tutorials on You Tube to help me, two of which I found the most helpful here and here
Below is the finished card.

Opened up, this is what the card looks like.  You can see the score lines clearly.

Close up of Left Corner.  The birds are fussy cut from the DSP and mounted on a 1 3/4" Whisper White circle.

Close up of  Right Corner

Close up of bird and flowers on easel.

The card can be folded up for mailing, but an envelope will have to be custom made for it.

Here's what I used: 
  • Thick Whisper White card stock 8 1/4 by 8 1/4" Scored at 4 1/8" turned and scored at 4 1/8" again. Cut lower score line  to center.  Burnish all score lines.
  • Blushing Bride card stock 1 piece 3 7/8 by 3 7/8" cut into 2 triangles
  • DSP - Bird Ballad DSP   1 piece 3 3/4 by 3 3/4" cut into 2 triangles - add this to Blushing Bride card stock triangles and adhere to two upper corners.
  • Blushing Bride card stock 1 piece 3 7/8 by 3 7/8" 
  • DSP - Bird Ballad DSP  1 piece 3 3/4 by 3 3/4"
  • Whisper White 1 piece 3 1/2 by 3 1/2"  - adhere this to DSP and to Blushing Bride and adhere to bottom piece.
  • 3 birds fussy cut from DSP
  • 3 1 3/4" Whisper White circles.  Adhere birds to circles and add to upper triangles
  • Two stitched rectangle pieces formed into an easel
  • Image of bird , 3 flowers and a leaf sprig stamped on Whisper White , coloured with Stampin' Blends, and die cut with Bird Ballad dies.  Arrange on Easel.  Adhere small rhinestones in center of flowers.  Adhere easel to Whisper White base
  • Stamp sentiment on smaller rectangle die and adhere to easel. Add Easel to lower card. Add Bird Ballad trinket above sentiment
  • Tie 5/8" organza ribbon into a bow and adhere below easel.

This is a fascinating card. I have to try it at least a few times till I get the hang of it. It is a great use of DSP. Thanks for all your advice in this video.
