Are you looking for a not-too-hard card to make, yet one that looks like you spent a lot of time on it?  Here it is!  Seriously!  From start to finish, including the time it took to select card stock colors, ribbon, and a stamp and to die cut the lattice and butterflies, I probably spent 30 to 45 minutes making this card.  Obviously, the next one won't take nearly that long, especially if you already have a drawer or box where you keep leftover die-cuts.  I can't take credit for the ingenuity of using the lattice to create the butterfly pop-up inside this card but, when I saw the idea, my mission was to make one!  The die-cut flowers got their glittery shimmer from Champagne Mist shimmer mist, and Chocolate Chip lattice was spritzed with Vanilla Shimmer and Silver Foil Smooch Spritz.  Stampin' Up! products used to create this card:
Stamp SetsElements of Style, Curvy Verses
Card StockVery Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Rose Red, Taken with Teal, Lovely Lilac
Sizzix/Big ShotLattice (Bigz die), Blossom Party (Originals die), Birds and Blooms (Sizzlits die), Beautiful Wings (Embosslit)
Accessories:  Chocolate Chip (retired ribbon), Rose Red 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, flower brad, Champagne Mist shimmer mist, Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz, Silver Foil Smooch Spritz

ETA:  Notice how nicely the largest flower from the "Blossom Party" die and the two flowers from the "Birds and Blooms" Sizzlit die match and layer?  Love that!

Just saw your lattice pop-up on Pinterest--I think it's a fantastic use of the lattice! Lovely design, too. Your card is inspiring a special card for a very dear friend. Thanks so much for sharing this!
