Pop Up Panel Cards

Hi blog friends!
Today I'm excited to show you a 
couple really cool cards.
(click on the pictures to see them larger)
I saw a video on another blog the other
day and had to try making some
"pop up panel cards"
(I'll link to that video below)
First I wanted to make a
get well/ encouragement card.
For the front of the card I stamped 
Eureka Stamps.
I colored it with colored pencils and
fussy cut it.
When I added it to the front of the card,
I used Glue Dots on the body of the butterfly
and put a couple layers of foam tape
under the wings to give dimension.
The exciting part comes when you open the card
and a panel pops out.
The sentiments are from
The little flowers are from
TaDa Creative Studios
I have no idea if it is available any longer.
I decided that I should also make a Christmas card
with a pop up panel inside.
I used card stocks from my stash.
Sorry I don't know the name of the stamp set I used
for this card.
The dotted border stamp that I used along the left side
All the stamped images were stamped with 
On this card I didn't use as many layers and it
still turned out beautifully.
I weighed each card and this one would be able to 
go through the mail on a regular stamp,
the other one is much heavier with the extra 
layers of card stock and would need extra postage.
For an excellent video on how to make this style of card

Thanks for stopping by today.
I hope you have found some inspiration here
and maybe you'll give this style of card a try too.
I hope you'll stop by again soon.
Until next time, Happy Crafting!
