Party Hearty Pop-Up Spiral Card


Happy Monday! Here's my attempt at a pop-up spiral card. I worked on this yesterday for a possible stamp club project, but it just wasn't happening for me. This was my second attempt too, ugh! So now you see why I went with the spider web card! lol! For a great tutorial video on how to make these, go here on Jenn Dierk's wonderful blog! Here's the inside:



I finished up another set of Holiday Mini catalog swaps this evening (after walking with dh, MY idea even!) to mail out tomorrow. That's the 5th set of swaps I've done this month, what was I thinking?! hee! hee! I can't wait to get them all back, they're coming from some really fabulous stampers! I should be able to start sharing the ones I made soon too.

Hope y'all had a wonderful Monday! They can be pretty rough, I find! I'm not sure about this new teaching gig this year, but considering how much more free time I have, I dare not complain, lest lightning strike me dead!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I always love hearing from you! Late Monday hugs!

Angie, I think is this is adorable, but I wonder if making the spirals white or some other contrasting color might help? The circles and the spiral being the same color sort of makes it blend in. Unless, of course, that's what you were going for--camouflage--then it looks great!! :)~

well, I think it turned out way cute. I love how you filled in the circles on the inside-adds a nice pop of color. I {hear} how you colored those hats on the outside, great color combo!
