Paper Pro's Twist Panel Pop-Up Challenge Card

Good morning friends

It's time for the March Paper Pro-s challenge - 'GREEN'. Since I have an elderly Irish friend that I send a St. Patrick's Day card to every year, I made this for her.

I used these cute stickers by Doodlebug for the decorations, and lots of green for the challenge. Below is the card front:

Inside I used the Twist Panel Pop-Up, by Karen Burniston. This is a hugely popular die set, and it's easy to see why. What a dramatic pop-up when the card is opened!

It had been awhile since I made one, so I wanted to watch the assembly video again. Karen Burniston makes it easy - the video's are right on her website with the product (karenburniston.com) so they are always quick to find. They can also be found on her YouTube Channel, which you can find HERE.

You have to watch out for 'catch points' when you make any kind of twist card, and using stickers keeps everything flat and also keeps the bulk down for postage. I'm also enjoying this stitched scalloped border die by Prickley Pear so used it again on this card.

I've had the stamp for several years, and use it every single year.  Last year I picked up this cute shamrock Washi Tape and I'm going to be using it for several years to come as well.

 The Paper Pro's challenge is a casual one, with a varying number of participants each month. This month we have:
