SO! I am still going to post some of my christmas cards - and do you know why? Because I didn't finish posting some of them, but I promised myself that I would do more holiday cards in preparation for next year, and darn, I'm gonna do that! How about you - any similar plans?
Here is the most complicated card(s) I did this 2016.....following the Twist and Pop Card Technique as I learned it watching Collette Mitrega's youtube demo. (click on link to view).
During the crafting of my first card, the one pictured with the poinsettia belly band, I made double the cardstock pieces and was able to craft a second card rather quickly. You can see how varied you can make the card's design, use your imagination. The cards can fit into a regular envelope but depends on how " chubby " you make them, and that also affects the postage. I pay 1.00 for a normal card according to the postal standards, but for these I had to pay 1.80. I'm fine with that. You should see what I pay for some oversized cards :)!

Nifty how they fold up!
And then POP right open!
This version featured stickers made of vintage images on metallic stars made by K & C0. I used some music sheet tissue paper to decoupage the panels and some glossy and glittery embossed cardstock....like it!
My final thoughts on these were that they have a 'cool factor' and are impressive for those special cards.....my daughter's grandmother, for example got one....and the other went out to a lady who's in her 70's, so there you are.....a great technique for you to try too!
