The Easiest Twist and Pop Card Tutorial Ever with Authentique Alpine and Tammy Tutterow Designs
Hello, Friends! Welcome to Creative Crew Friday with Tammy Tutterow Designs. I am so excited about today’s project, as it involves a fabulous pop up card design. I have a YouTube video to share the Easiest Twist and Pop Card Tutorial Ever!
Twist and Pop cards burst on the scene a little over a year ago and I was instantly captivated by them. The big problem with this amazing fancy fold card was that you practically needed an engineering degree to put one together. The pop up mechanism was complicated and bulky and it was really easy to get discouraged during the creative process.
But I love a good interactive card, so I set my mind on coming up with a design that was less bulky, easier to create and would accommodate a larger card base. First, I spent a whole day watching dozens of twist and pop card videos and reading blog posts. While I gleaned some good tidbits from each video/tutorial I viewed none of them completely met my expectations.
Then I spent an entire day “fussing with paper” until I felt I had a design that was sleek and easy to create. In fact, it was so much fun that I ended up making TWO cards for you today instead of just one. So let’s get this show on the road and dig in to this Easiest Twist and Pop Card Tutorial Ever.
Cold Hands Warm Heart Twist and Pop Card Tutorial
This first card is made with Tammy Tutterow’s amazing Cold Hands, Warm Hearts Cling Stamp. The card base measures a generous 5″ x 6″. This is considerably larger than the 4.25″ x 5.5″ card tutorials that I found online. Goal number one? Make a larger card. Check!
First, I stamped the image onto patterned paper from Authentique’s Alpine Collection Kit. Then I colored it in with a combination of colored pencils and alcohol markers. Next, the stamped panel was stitched onto a navy cardstock mat. Now I created my card base from the same navy cardstock and added a stitched panel of designer paper from Alpine. Then I die cut felt flowers using Bitty Posie and Posie Parts to add to the card along with some ribbon and a cute novelty button. I die cut a couple of banner flags using Tammy’s Frayed Banners and topped them with vintage red buttons from my stash. Card front is done! Easy peasy!
Twist and Pop Card Tutorial: The Party is on the Inside!
There’s nothing more fun than opening up a twist and pop card….unless you are watching someone open one for the first time!
This cheery array of Tammy’s Mini Envelopes and Pockets decorates the pop up mechanism.
I even included a little shaker element!
Each mini envelope has been decorated with stickers or images from the Alpine Collection Kit. The envelopes are held in place with small magnets. Cute images from the 6×6 bundle are tucked inside. Find all the details in the YouTube tutorial below.
Happy Winter Twist and Pop Card Tutorial with Authentique Alpine Collection
How much do we love this winter llama and penguin? Yeah, a lot! This second card is the one that we will build together in the YouTube tutorial below.
Like the Cold Hands card, it has a fun twist and pop design.
This time, instead of adding envelopes, I just decorated each panel of the pop up mechanism. How fun are these images?
