I’m so excited to share my friend Cathie’s over-the-top twist and pop Halloween card with you! There are SOOOO many cool elements to make this a boo-tifully fun card.
Our sweet little Halloween Heidi is a fun witch brewing up some magic for you.
You know, every time I look at it I notice something new.
- the glittery ribbon edging on the card corners
- a creepy silver spider on the shiny black web
- the fun star designer series paper panel
- her perfect label die-cut background (from the beautiful Stitched Seasons framelits set) now retired 🙁
…and we haven’t even opened it up yet!
Isn’t it fun? I LOVE how these cards fold flat and then pop out at you when you open them.
Cathie gave her Stampin’ Blends to a workout. Did you notice all her colouring?
And you know what else? She used every single stamp in the Cauldron Bubble stamp set for her dynamite design. She knows how to get her money’s worth!
Cathie’s a huge Halloween fan. And she loves interactive types of cards. She found the original twist and pop idea on Pinterest and went to town designing this fun card. Here’s a few of her words of wisdom as you are making one…
The hardest part is making sure the mechanism is scored correctly and then positioned correctly on the inside. I have since made other twist and pops and found that the stronger the outside of the card is the better it works.
So the last one I did, has a regular layer of card stock then another layer of thick card stock with a final layer of designer series paper and the embellishments. This way the card stands better and when opening it seems to open better as well.
Here’s a few more ideas for the fun Halloween bundle from Stampin’ Up!
Love this suite too like Cathie? There’s still time to have it arrive to make Halloween cards and fun treats!
