This 3D Flower Pop Up card was designed as a thank you card. Once you know how to make the basic flower you can make any card you want. It opens either horizontally or vertically. I left the inside un-decorated so that you could make it as you want. But I have a few suggestions at the end.
The front of this 3D pop Up Flower Card was done with scraps from my scrap bin. They can be of any weight. There are two base cards, one with slits and one without. They can be the same paper or different. The base cards have to be at least 110 lb weight or heavier. The flower was made from 85 weight light blue cardstock (and a scrap of yellow) but you can make it any color you want.
Cutting the 3D Pop Up Flower Card
As I said, there are two base cards, one with slits and one without. You need both of them to hide the tabs glued to the back.
A lot of the pieces are very fine so be careful when removing them from the mat.

And your 3D Flower Pop Up Card is done. It fits in an A7 envelope for mailing or hand delivery.
Some variations for the Inside of the 3D Flower Pop Up Card
I made this Happy Birthday card with a background and a label. It is just an idea of how to decorate the inside of the card. You can also place leaves around the flower to decorate the inside. Use your imagination. Of course to make a Happy Birthday Card the Thank You would have to be changed to a Happy Birthday on the front of the card.
Also you could try embossing the center flower to give it more elegance. Use your imagination. I just taught you how to make the basic card. Or try making the two base cards out of different papers. This could add some more color to your card.
Once you know how to make the basic flower inside you can change it however you want!
