A New Year Popping Up

As a creative person, do you ever look at pictures on Pinterest, or while shopping, see something and say "I can make that" ? That's what happened this time. I saw a lot of twist and pop cards on Pinterest. I like the movement and mechanism of the card, so off I went making my own.
The front panel is printed using fonts and designs I had in my Silhouette Studio library.
The fun is inside.  As you open it, the pop up slowly twists and pops up to a W shape. You might notice that the white perforated insert ripped. That's because I had too many perforation lines on the cut file. but that's ok - this was my first attempt.
You can't really notice it once the card is fully open. I embossed the numbers with the large set of folders from Tim Holtz. Now that I know what to do (and what NOT to do) I see a lot of possibilities for this card.
Join me soon, I've got some more cards to share with you.

  1. Love your pop-up card, I've seen it with other designs and it's always cute. Is this a cut file that your created and are willing to share? I'd love to try it... I'm new to Silhouette Cameos and this seems an easy way to get started...
