A Paisley Pop Up Birthday

My husband and I went to Olive Garden the other night for dinner.  Hanging over our table was this beautiful Italian style plate.  I took a picture and made this card from the inspiration.  It goes to show you that inspiration can come from lots of places and take you in many directions.


Now, there isn’t a paisley in this plate but I immediately thought of the paisley paper and dies.

I had also been wanting to try this exploding pop-up card style I saw in Atlanta.1-img_1530For instruction on how to make it I used the You Tube tutorial by Dawn Griffith.

I created my own tiny piece of DSP for the sentiment by stamping images from the Pretty Paisley stamp set in coordinating colors.  Then I used my Rich Razzleberry marker and randomly dotted the background.
