This is the inside of the card. To make the spirals for the pop-up you punch a 1 3/8" circle and sart cutting it into a spiral. After the circles are cut into spirals you put adhesive in the middle of the circle and then at the outside where you began cutting. It is best to get your circles cut and adhesive on then you can stamp the background then position the circles inside the card where you want and then close the card to attach the other end to the top part of the card. This idea works great for a lot of themes. The hardest part about this card was actually cutting out all the butterflies!
