I Could Totally Do That

Sometime last fall I saw this video for an interesting card design and I watched it. I thought to myself, "I could totally do that!" Except I didn't. Then my friend made me a card with that design for Christmas and that got me thinking about it again--I could totally do that.
Except, again, I didn't. Then a local SU demonstrator said, "Come to my class and I will teach you how to make that design." I said, "Now I could totally do that!" And I did.
So here it is in all its glory--the famous Twist and Pop card that is not nearly as obnoxious to make as you might think (actually I didn't think that because I watched that video so many months ago).

The Fine Print: All products by Stampin' Up cuz it was a SU person who taught the class and that's super okay because SU has some cool things as evidenced by this cool card. Party on. Oh, that row of nifty bling across the front of the card is from a Dollar Store. It's mega cool looking in real life but probably all the Dollar Stores in your area have been pillaged of that item because no one can say no to it.

Such a cool card, Judy! It does look tricky to make! What a surprise when the recipient opens it!

This looks great. I have made one of these, and there is SO MUCH space inside that it's kind of beyond my planning capabilities. this one looks extremely well planned.

You've done a great job with your card Judy. I've made a couple and they are fun to make aren't they. I love how you've decorated all the pieces inside. Lots of interesting pieces. Barbxx

I need to find a tutorial for making one of these. I've seen them and wanted to try it. Thanks for pushing me into making one now that I've seen yours up close and personal. It truly is a stunning card with wonderful details!

I agree with Shaz - your posts always make me smile. Love the concept of this twist and pop card. It looks like a lot of work has gone in to decorating all the panels but it was worth it as the end result is lovely. Anne x

Not only could you TOTALLY DO THAT, you TOTALLY NAILED IT too.
LOVE your version of this fab surprise card. I will be making another one this weekend. I like the way you rounded the corners, so I might just have to "pinch" that idea! TFS.

Hugs, Sarn xxx
