Hello everyone, this blog post marks the start of my Creative Card Series.
Over the next 2 weeks, I will be sharing with you my favourite greeting cards. Every card I share will have some kind of mechanism and I have made sure, with lots of research that they are easy to follow.
To kick-start this fortnight of wonderful cards I have this fun
Twist & Pop card
I watched so many YouTube videos for this one, some of them scared me with how complicated they were making the mechanism!
After lots of playing around and experimenting, I have come up with this lovely 6 x 6 version.
To make this card you will need…
12 x 6 card for the main outer shell.
Score along the 12′ side at 6′
8 x 3.1/2 card for the mechanism
Score along 8′ side at 4′ & put a notch at 2.1/4 and 5.3/4 flip the card over so the other 8′ side is now at the top and notch the same to points as before.
Score along 3.1/2 side at 1.3/4
11 x 3.3/4 card for the long panel
Score along 11′ side at 2.3/4, 5.1/2 & 8.1/4
3 pieces 5.3/4 x 5.3/4 patterned paper to decorate the front and the inside.
4 pieces of 3.1/2 x 2.1/2 for the long panel.
My paper is old Stampin Up ‘Party Animal’
Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made it.
As you can see I made quite a few testing out other peoples videos.
I hope you liked mine.
