Double Pop Up Swing card for Mothers Day...

Quick post today... but I wanted to share one of my brand new card fold designs, a Double Pop Up Swing card... aka Double Lever Card... though I will be back another day with more details...

Rather a lot of snow has fallen in these parts... which has changed my plans somewhat this week... and my husbands a lot! Don't think he has ever not got to work for 2 days (so far!) before... but it has been lovely watching all the families with young kids wandering around the village pulling sledges... the street has been a lot busier with bodies than usual!
So decoratively on this card ... I used...

Smoky Slate cardstock... and Springtime Foils papers ... yours exclusively for free with every £45 ordered during the Sale A Bration promotion until 31st March. This time the beautiful silver foil stripe and the gorgeous silver foil leafy patterned papers...

And quite a lot of stamps, punches and dies...

Lots of Labels dies for the apertures...
Labels to Love stamped frame punched out with the Everyday Label Punch ... which co-ordinates well with the Lots of Labels shape...

Along with Brushwork Alphabet stamps for MUM & Teeny Tiny Sentiments (aka Teeny Tiny Wishes on other parts of the world) for the Mothers Day greeting... in a Thoughtful Banners frame... which is punched out with the Classic Label Punch

And finished off with a vellum Sweet Soiree Embellishment with the leaves coloured in using a non-SU! gold Signo gel pen to match the small gold foil leaves in the papers...
I am really pleased how this card fold turned out... What do you think?
