We woke up to a SNOW bunch this morning! As much as I'm not a "winter" person I have to admit that it sure looks pretty outside ( I may regret saying that when I head out to shovel after I write this post!)
Anyhow, a little of the white stuff definitely helps put one in the Christmas Spirit and put's Christmas card making in high gear! Before I go into detail on this Merry Mice Pop & Twist card pictured above I thought I should announce the winners of the Merry Mice Tag Blog Candy. Thank you for all the wonderful comments that you left - I love that Christmas spirit can be found even in the littlest of things!

Okay, back to today's cute and interactive card! These Pop & Twist cards are taking the world of Pinterest by storm and I succumbed to peer pressure and had to make one for myself. I demonstrated this card at my last Techniques Class and it was a definite hit - I think my sister ended up making half a dozen of these by the day's end LOL.
If you're unfamiliar with this card fold simply search Google or You Tube for Pop & Twist Card Folds; you'll find tons of tutorials and all the dimensions that will get you started. And once you have that inside mechanism figured out it's easy peasy to make! It's like pure magic the way this card looks like any old other when closed but when you open it up a series of smaller cards unfold from within. Whomever came up with this idea is a genius!
As you can probably tell by my a couple of my previous posts I'm really really enjoying using this Merry Mice set. They are easy to layer onto a card such as this one and give me the opportunity to color with my Stampin' Write Markers which is always a win win in my books.
