I used the retired Chantilly Workshop on the Go Kit

This style of pop up card is very popular at the moment, I've seen such a variety of ideas using this box card.   I love the idea of the flowers on a trellis & I got motivated by a friend of mine who had made a similar one.    I wanted to create it using the Cricut machine & the Close To My Heart products.
