Down time at my desk ~ Friends of the Forest ( VIP Tutorial coming )

 Friends of the Forest ~ Pop Up Fun Fold Card

A little bit of down time at my desk today led to this incredibly cute Pop 

Up Card! This card works up best when using a cutesy little scene type stamp set, so when I looked at the "Friends of the Forest" set I knew it would be perfect. 

Now, I just want to say that it took me longer to accomplish the coloring than it did to put the card together πŸ˜‚

Though the coloring may have taken a little bit of time, there was nothing to fussy cut, so that was a bonus! This stamp set, in case you are not aware, works with the "deer punch" from the Peaceful Deer bundle that I loved so much for Christmas cards. 

My heart always follows a bundle with a punch! 

So it was super amazing when the "Friends of the Forest" stamp set rolled out in the January - June 2022 mini catalogue. 
Friends of the Forest is definitely going to make a few cute cards this season. I'm just searching for tiny stamp in order to put into play another idea I have for this set. 
I will link these products below. 

Ready to see the card?
Of course you are...

Absolutely Adorable!! 
This stamp set looks so blah, until you add some color to those cute little characters. The butterfly on the inside was from "Happy Hedgohog" stamp set. There was a little chick from the Friends of the Forest set that I hadn't used, however I thought he might look a bit odd floating around in the sky, so I opted for the butterfly. πŸ˜ƒ

Here is the same card layout using the "Happy Hedgehog" Bundle ( it has a punch to ) ! 

I used the Simply Marbleous designer paper from Sale a-bration. Unfortunately that is no longer available, however there are many other designer papers available from Stampin Up. You can view those at the "Shop With Me" button below. 

 I absolutely love the "Happy Hedgehogs" stamp set.  I have used them for birthday cards, baby cards, thinking of you cards, just saying hi, They work for so many card occasions.

So what do you think? Like it enough for a tutorial??
I have been asked for a tutorial for this card so many times, I have decided I will send one out as a bonus email to my subscribers.
