Pop Up

Since I started blogging I have fallen into the trap of making square cards, let's face it, they are easier to make and embellish and to fit in an envelope and easier to photograph! So when a challenge asks for 'Anything But Square' or 'Shaped Cards', I tend to stay away! However, after seeing this tutorial from Split Coast Stampers for a pop up card, I thought I'd have a go. I wasn't too happy with the photo - the roses are actually the same shade as the background card, but for some reason have come out rather blue!
