Twist & Pop Card

Hi crafty friends,

Today I made a Twist & Pop card with a difference.  Taking inspiration from the cards that I made at christmas with the Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle, I set out to adapt this using the Bear Hugs set from the Annual catalogue.

Card base - Tempting Turquoise 11 3/4" X 4 1/8" (scored on long side at 5 7/8")

Card front - Calypso Coral 5 1/2" X 3 7/8" Embossed with Petal Burst TIEF & another piece of Calypso Coral for the Scalloped mat on the sentiment and the writing panel.
                    Sahara Sand 1" X 3 7/8" Die cut with scallop edge from Cutie Pie Framelits
                    Burlap Ribbon approx 6"
                    Metallic Ribbon Combo - Silver approx 12" inc Bow

Card Inside - Sahara Sand 3 7/8" X 5 5/8" (Stamped with Hardwood in Soft Suede) & another piece of Sahara Sand for the sentiment and writing panel.

Mechanism - Very Vanilla 3" X 9 1/4" (scor 3" side at 3/4", 1 1/2", 2 1/4") Turn to 9 1/4" side (scor at 3 1/4", 4", 4 3/4", 7 1/4", 8").
Then use your stylus & ruler to scor an 'X' between the 4 squares as shown in the video.

Bear - Soft Suede - approx 4" X 5" (stamped in Early Espresso)

Old Olive cardstock for grass and Shimmery White for honey pots and flowers. I stamped these with Archival Black ink.

I hope this helps and you are able to make your own hugging bear. I absolutely love how this guy turned out.

Till next time,
Stay crafty XO Tan
