I have been spending some time lately in my craft room, rearranging and de cluttering. I am not quite finished yet but I needed to take a break from all that and spend some time crafting!
This weekend we are celebrating with friends, a joint 40th birthday for a couple. A 40th Birthday celebration deserves a special fancy card. I decided finally to give the Pop and Twist Card a try.
This card was inspired by a fabulous crafty friend of mine, Kristel Rimmer. Kristel makes some amazing crafts including these Pop and Twist Cards. If you haven’t already visited Kristel’s blog you need to! You can visit her website here. She specialises in lots of different crafts and she is my inspiration on giving these pop and twist cards a go. Thanks Kristel!
So all folded up this card looks not much different to a regular card.
Here is a photo of this card standing…not much different to what you have seen before. It is not until you open this card up that the magic begins!
Every time I open this card I feel the need to say a big “Ta-dah!”
How cool is that?! Can you tell that I had loads of fun creating this style of card? Have you ever made a Pop and Twist card before? It looks daunting but once you have the pop and twist mechanism in place, all that is needed is to decorate and that is always the super fun part!
Below are some close ups on the inside decoration on this card.
Can you believe this is the first card I have used this Broadway Bound DSP on? I just needed the perfect card to use it on.
I felt that photographs just did not do this card justice so I have included a GIF video to show you how awesome this card actually is when opened.
This most certainly will not be my last Pop and Twist card, I am already planning my next one!
If you need a special card for a special occasion (or any occasion for that matter!) I would be happy to make one for you.
Don’t forget Sale-A-Bration is still happening until the end of this month. Any orders over AUD$90 will be eligible to receive a choice of SAB items for free. So don’t miss out!
I hope you enjoyed my Pop and Twist card as much as I did making it. Stay tuned for more to follow! (They are kind of addictive!)
