Fancy Fold Pop up Dangler Card

Fancy Fold card
This fancy fold card is the result of an experiment while playing around with punches and my scoreboard.This is how the fancy fold card looks when folded
Fancy Fold card
The window was cut with the Cheery Lynn Window die .Stuck punched butterflies on the back panel so that they pop from the window on closing the fancy fold card!
Fancy Fold card
Added spellbinder banner die cuts atop the window and more punched flowers
Fancy fold card
Layered the scallop hearts with foam tape for a more dimensional effect and added a lacy punched border.
Fancy fold card
Since this card is the result of an experiment I dont have tutorial photos to share.And measurements don't have much importance since they will vary based on what kind of border punch you want to use;so just sharing the general template for this fancy fold card
Fancy fold card template
After I had made this card I saw a beautiful heart punch card with a dangler on my friend Lisa's blog so I adapted her dangler idea into the folds of my card to make a dangling pop up card 
Fancy fold pop up card
I made the butterfly dangler by punching out 2 butterflies for each butterfly on the dangler.Applied glue to one butterfly.
Butterfly card 
Positioned the thread over the center of the butterfly and stuck another butterfly on top of it. Added 2 more butterflies and hearts to make one dangler .
Butterfly card 
Hung the thread from the lace heart which is stuck by a simple V fold pop up mechanism atop the embossed window .On opening all the folds, butterflies and hearts dangle from the heart arches of the pop up card

Dear friends I went a bit crazy with white and all the punches and dies and my little critique is rather unappreciative about it..but please do leave me your comments!
