It's A Hoot-Hoot Birthday!

I had recently seen many twist-and-pop cards on Pinterest and was dying to make one.  I wanted my first one to be special though, so waited for my friend Susan's 50th birthday.  She loves owls and her favourite colour combo is red, black and white, so I already had my theme sorted.  I won some Polkadoodles images a while ago and chose 'Party Time Twiggy & Toots' especially for this occasion.  
These cards are actually a lot easier to make than they look.  I just love this as people are always so impressed with pop-up cards. I don't have any step-by-step photos for this one, as just forgot to be honest.  You can find the instructions I followed here though.

Product list:

  • Black and white cardstock
  • Papermania 'Spots & Stripes Brights' DP
  • Sequins
  • Sizzix Tim Holtz Celebration Script Words dies
  • ProMarkers - Walnut, Henna, Cinnamon, Tan, Cardinal, Hot Pink, Lipstick, Burgundy, Shale, Black, Cool Grey 5, Tulip, Cocoa, Warm Grey 1-4, Sandstone, Vanilla, Denim, Blue Pearl, Powder Blue, Primrose, Ginger, Saffron, Oatmeal, Burnt Orange, Indigo, French Navy, Cobalt, Bright Orange, Gold, Sunflower & Buttercup
  • White Sakura Gelly Roll
