Hello stampers. I am sure you have seen some amazing twisted pop-up cards on Pinterest. They are just so impressive. It is always a very cool thing to surprise people and that is exactly what this card does. From the outside it looks like a plain, average card. Cute, but nothing super impressive.  Well.  I’m telling you, they are a lot of fun to make and even more fun to watch people open. It really helps to make a few at a time so that your brain catches on to how to make them, and then it is like riding a bike. You don’t forget.


High Tide and stitched framelits combine for a winning card.


The Seaside Embossing folder is the perfect match for this card. It was a very special gift to me from Ellie Blake at OnStage in Toronto. A lovely lady and a very lovely card which inspired me to make my own version using the Birthday Memories Suite.

Here is the card that I made using the Birthday Memories Suite.

It really is a surprise when you open this card! How much fun is that both for you and the person you give it to? See the little present? It is cut out with a framelit from our patterned paper in this suite. Should be available June 1.


The jaunty fox, the happy bear and the poodle all celebrate your birthday.


Finally here is the card I demonstrated in my video. It uses Beautiful You and the stitched framelits. It also combines Floral Boutique paper and delightful dijon cardstock, both of which are retiring. Take note of the host code in the sidebar, please use that when you order online and I will be sure to send you a  thank you card. This card was cased from Betsy Rouw.


Beautiful You, delightful dijon and Floral Boutique paper.


I love how the patterns combine on this card. Oh how I will miss Floral Boutique paper.


Here is a close-up of one of the girls. I will probably add a Mother’s Day sentiment to this one and send it to my Mom. She is 85 now and I know for a fact that her life was not always easy. She was married to the love of her life, but she could have had 8 children and ended up with only 4 due to miscarriages and death. She also had to leave all of her family behind and live in poverty for many years. Oh, how I love her!

This picture shows the inside mechanism of the card, I hope it helps. The part with the four panels is 3 3/4″ by 11″ scored at 2 3/4, 5 1/2, and 8 1/4″. The patterned paper pieces are 2 1/2″ by 3 1/2″.

Here are the dimensions for the inner workings of the twisted pop-up card.


Here is the YouTube video that will show you how this card is put together, hopefully it helps you. There are other tutorials out there, just Google it.



Happy stamping. Remember, stamping is cheaper than therapy and way more fun.
