Six panel Pop & Twist Card & Congratulations Sue

Well... the Pop Up & Twist Panel card (aka Pop Up Panel Card, Pop Up Twist Card or Twisted Pop Up Card) is an incredibly popular card format at the moment... and I have made a few already... which have been proving very popular with people coming and visiting my blog... see here, herehere, here and here ...

But I was determined to make one with more panel sections than the 4 panels offered in all the cards doing the rounds...
And so I have!! So I bring you a World Exclusive (I think!)... the 6 Panel Pop & Twist Card...

And talk about a wonderful excuse to do so... my lovely Sue has gained her Stampin' Up! Silver promotion... for which I am a very proud SU! Mummy!!

So I was delighted to make the prototype for her to accompany the celebratory gift I sent her.... and I can't wait to see what she makes with her gift! So... again... well done Sue! And if you live in the UK and would like to join my merry bunch of Craft Therapists... and earn gifts and cards from me... just go here!
Beautiful silver embossed greeting care of Birthday Blast (again), flowers and butterflies from Grateful Bunch (had to be butterflies for Sue!) with flowers punched out by Blossom Bunch Punch. Die cut Large Letters in Silver Glimmer  and papers from the Neutrals ( Silver) and Subtles (Pool Party) Designer Series Paper Stacks. Finished off with 3/8" Stitched Pool Party Ribbon

And here is the simple (but I think classy!) understated front... as I really wanted the opening of the card to cause the WOW!!!
And no... no tutorial today... as a second version has already been made which improves on the making of this first prototype... and I have just one more thing to try before I finalise the design... as I do like to fine tune to make the making of a card as easy as possible!
