Pop Up and Twirl Anniversary Card

This is the card I made for my Mum's and Dad's recent 46th wedding anniversary. This card is a one off as it took me a lot of covering up of my mistakes. :-) Still worked in the end. For the front I have SU Bravo Burgundy for the front of this card. Stamped a flourish from the SU Priceless set with clear Versa Mark. I have folded this lovely little pot holder from Kaye's idea in the Craftmad Christmas Journal. Added a gold sticker greeting from the Sticker Store. Twisted some gold wire into leaves and stems and topped with some beautiful glitter hearts I picked up from the $2 store.

This is where I started this card ..... on the inside. While blog hopping I came across a wonderful Pop Up and Twirl Card and ended up at Splitcoast Stampers for the tutorial. I misread a couple of the instructions so had some holes in the wrong places but I think I have successfully covered them up. When I first started this card I had a rough garden string.....for the record this does not work, it doesn't run smooth enough. I now have some cotton crochet thread. I have used SU Blue Bayou for the inside. The greeting I received from Deborah March a long time ago but finally found the right spot for it. Once again I used the Flourish from SU Priceless stamp set. Also the gold heart stickers from the $2 shop. If you go check out the tutorial there is a video there that shows one of these cards in motion. As you open it the heart section spins around.

I am a bit slow showing this off. Just never thought of taking a photo at the right time. I checked all the blogs in the One World One Heart (OWOH) blog hop in February. I so love this journey the second time I have taken it. This year I was lucky enough to win a prize from one of the blogs I visited. Kylie over at Antmee sent me two wonderful magazines and some beautiful Heather Bailey Design papers. Thanks so much Kylie and I am so glad I got to visit your blog and discover you. Kylie has lovely sewing projects on her blog be sure to check them out.
