Dragons lair DT post

i have so busy that life is coming back round. To meet me !! This is my last DT post for Dragons Lair because of that- however I shall still support them as they have lovely papers and digis. This is the pansy collection and it's so pretty and versatile .
This is the front of a chipboard album, I removed the rings so I can use the pages separately
This one has been painted with pink acrylic paint and then covered with Dragons Lair collection papers and embellishments
It's for a Mothers birthday and I added a calendar as there are still 9 months to go this year

What a lovely collection this is, very pretty colours and designs. 

Find the shop here the Face book fan page here

Dragons lair 'Pansy ' collection - pop up card

The lovely new Pansy collection from Dragons Lair is released in April, it's very adaptable and pretty

I decided to make a pop up card , I haven't made one for ages and had almost forgotten how to do it.

Below is the template for this one

If you can't see the measurements it's an inch both sides of the fold and an inch wide too

I printed this design on thick card and made it into my card as above.
And with the cut out pansies stuck on as below

Make sure  that your chosen topper doesn't go above the card or it won't go in the envelope 
See below photo. 

I put some of the pretty green from the collection on the back to cover the cut outs for the pop ups
See below picture 

I added some embellishments and a sentiment
