Creative Card Series No 1

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 main outer shell.

Score along the 12′ side at 6′

8 x 3.1/2 card for 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 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 are old Stampin Up ‘Party Animal’

My Happy Birthday die is unbranded from china and my Bunting die is by  Sweet Dixie

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.

  1. creative card series 1 the twist and pop card has the wrong scoring measurements for the 11 3/4 in. panel …when I used your measurements my last section was way to big so I folded it in half then quarters… so I got new measuremnts of 3, 5 7/8, and 8 6/8….im not trying to be smart just stop others from making wrong score lines in their good paper….

    1. Hi Jean I’ve checked my video as you are the first person to raise an issue with the scoring. I’m not quite sure with your measurements. Its an 11′ piece so if you fold that in half you get 5.1/2 and then fold again you get 2.3/4 pieces that’s exactly what I say and do in the video. Apologies if I’ve miss understood you. x
