Fall Twist and Pop Card

Yes, I know this is SO last year, but with all the packing and moving I couldn't ever find time to try one of these ingenious interactive cards.  And I'm hooked!

I'm kinda past Fall cards and into Halloween but I did want to participate in the BBTB2 Autumn challenge this week so I checked my Pinterest Techniques board and rediscovered the Twist and Pop card. 

I followed the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers and was just so intrigued with the mechanism.  Cool!  The leaves are from CTMH Artiste and the font I used for the word 'Fall' is Liberty Regular.  The sweet little sentiment stamp comes from Sunny Studio

Because I can't just follow directions and be done, I tried and tried and tried to figure out how to make the card open horizontally, rather than vertically.  It was a fail, but DH is convinced he can make a mechanism that will do this so stay tuned!  (However, if you know of a link to someone who has already figured this out, let me know and I'll present him with a fait accompli! LOL)   Thanks for visiting with me today.  : )  Christine


  1. I am fascinated by the twist and pop cards too and plan to make several for Halloween! I will be keeping an eye out for your horizontal mechanism! Thanks for sharing your cute card at Bitten by the Bug 2!

  2. I think the closest you'll get to doing this style of card horizontally is a "floating tabletop" card. You can find the tutorial for this here:

  3. This card is very cute, but I too am fascinated by the twist and pop. Thank you for the tutorial because I do need it!!. Oh, and thank you for sharing at BBTB2! :D
