Catch and Release Butterflies

While the outside of the card is beautiful by itself, what really makes this card is the "pop" of the inside.  To make your own pop-up spiral card, punch a circle (I used the 2 1/2 inch circle), and cut it into a spiral shape.  Using sticky tape or glue dots, adhere the outside edge of the spiral to the bottom part of your card.  Place another piece of sticky tape in the middle of your spiral and close the card, thus adhering the spiral to the top part of your card.  When you re-open the card, your spiral is ready to decorate! 

Stamps:  Perfectly Preserved, Papillon Potpourri, Blooming with Kindness
Inks:  Basic Black, Island Indigo, Riding Hood Red, Versamark
Paper:  Twitterpated DSP, Island Indigo, Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Pretty in Pink

Other:  Lacy Brocade embossing folder, Labels Framelits, Cannery Set Framelits, White Baker's Twine, Elegant Butterfly and 2 1/2 inch circle punches, dimensionals, , sticky tape, markers in Pretty in Pink, Baja Breeze and Riding Hood Red
