Twist and Pop Christmas Card

Hello Friends!

You have probably seen these Twist and Pop cards many times since they have been all over the internet for a few months now.  But I haven’t tried to make one until today!  I used a Design Space file that Joy Tracey from Obsessed With Scrapbooking shared a while back.  This made the scoring and folding so easy!  I decorated this card with papers from the Oh Deer paper collection from Close To My Heart.

The picture above shows the front of the card when it is closed.  I made a belly band that I decorated with a snowflake Thin Cut and an embossed star from the Oh Deer Complements.

This photo shows the card partially open.  You need to see the twisting motion in action to really appreciate the mechanics of this card.  It’s really quite impressive, but deceptively easy!

And finally, this photo shows what the card looks like when it is completely open.  There are six panels to decorate and embellish.  I can think of lots and lots of options for this card design so you will probably see some more of them soon!

Here is the link to Joy Tracey’s video showing you how to assemble these Twist and Pop cards.  She also has a link to her Design Space file there.  Give these a try–they are lots of fun!!

If you still have Christmas shopping to do, I wish you small crowds, short lines and close-to-the-door parking spaces!!    Laurie
