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

  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: http://www.extremepapercrafting.com/2009/04/pop-up-card-tutorial-lesson-23.html
