For this month's Hop, I featured one of my granddaughter Charlotte's favorite Disney characters, Ariel. I used a trendy fold pattern called a "Twist and Pop Card" to make this birthday card:
Here's the cover of the 4"x6" card:
This paper is produced by Disney. I've had it in my stash for a while,
but I think I bought it at Michael's.
Now check out the motion on this card:
The card opens vertically from the top/bottom.
The 10" wide insert is on a cross-fold pop-up that twists.
The mechanism is a simple fold.
And here is Ariel sending her birthday greetings
(the inside of the card):
I accented the paper with Sparkle Gems and Silver Shimmer Trim, both from Close To My Heart.
I hope you enjoyed my project!
