lotus butterfly pop-up card

This was intended for a sympathy card. Metamorphosis and all that. It has three main pop-up mechanisms; lotus leaves on tables, lotus flower in hexagon pattern with two sides attached to the card, levered butterfly that opens its wings with the card. But the thing is, the lotus leaves are on two separate tables although they could just as easily been attached into one large table, and the lotus flower is two hexagonal patterns, one concentric to the other. So that's 5 total mechanisms, still, I think it manages to avoid being mechanically overloaded. The envelope has a little hand-drawn caterpillar sealing the flap.

The card has no words.
