Well it’s definitely drawing closer to Christmas and the rush is definitely real!
Every year at Christmas, I like to have at least one ‘WOW’ card to give to special people – my nan in particular – she LOVES a special card and has requested that I make one for her daughter (my Aunty) this year.
Now I had seen quite a few of these Twist and Pop Cards for a while – they are currently very popular – so I set about finding a tutorial from someone who had made one. I came across a few that used a full A4 piece cut and scored and inserted into the card. But when you are trying to run a class, unless everyone remembers to bring their paper trimmers, its a little impractical and time consuming to have everyone take turns scoring and cutting their cardstock. I came across a tutorial from Sincerely Rina. She made a card using 12″ cardstock. The majority of my card is A4 size, so I altered my card to that so it could fit in a regular envelope for posting. I made one Christmas design and one birthday design, and my youtube clip is another birthday card design.
This first design was using our Blooms and Bliss DSP and Flourishing Phrases Bundle.
The Christmas design was using the Presents and Pinecones DSP and the Tin of Tags Stamp Set.
