Magnolia Buds Pop-Up Card
by Trina Pham


Hello everyone.  Today I am sharing a floral bouquet pop-up card featuring the Magnolia Bud Trio die from the April 2023 Magnolia collection.  Removing the belly band reveals the fun surprise inside! 🤗


Started with two side folding A2 size card bases made from black cardstock.  Trimmed one down about 1/8” smaller, then using a ruler and a white gel pen, marked off the bouquet details as follows. 


The dot is the point of the bottom of the bouquet wrap while the lines are the top of the wrap and shelves for attaching the buds and leaves. Cut along the lines with scissors and scored from the end point of the longest line to the dot.  Fold as follows.


Opened it up and mountain fold all sections to form the bouquet base.


Die cut the Magnolia Bud Trio from white cardstock and colored the buds with a finger brush and Wilted Violet distress ink.  Die cut the leaves with the Magnolia Leaf Branch die and colored the leaves with YG61/63/67 Copic Sketch markers.  Glued the buds and leaves to form the bouquet, checking each time to ensure placement does not impede folding.  Magnolia Plaid paper was used for the wrap  


Created the belly band from black cardstock and the same plaid paper to keep the card cohesive.  The For You Posh Script sentiment was in my stash.  It was die cut from gold Vintage Pastel Mirror paper and mounted on its black shadow.  


Didn’t want the few unused buds and left over branch to go to waste, so added them to the belly band afterwards.  Finished off with some clear shimmer on the buds for some sparkle.

update: a quick video of it can be seen over on my IG account HERE.   Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.
