Susie is our hostess this week for Teapot Tuesday - to find out why we are sending our cards to a cousin of sweet Carla, check out the challenge thread HERE.
A few challenges back, I think it was Jen included the twisted pop-up card in her list of suggestions, and it was already something I'd been wanting to revisit. I guess I left it too long, it took me ages just constructing this. I wanted it bright and cheery, so I picked orange and yellow card to use, and that left me with two hoarded Basic Grey Possibilities- Lime Rickey or Mellow, which is what I ended up using.
For the front, I added a Lawn Fawn grass border and the Reading Tree from Impression Obsession. I didn't use the tutorial for photo corners as I have a punch and not a lot of time (that improves starting after this week, thank goodness).
Inside, I personalised three of the panels: music (DieVersions music waterfall) and a flower (left from my babywipe TLC a while back) for LeAnna, a cat and a jigsaw puzzle (both dies from X-Cut) for Abby, and a bright blue car (set on a map page) for Aric - the car and the traffic light are both from TH's Cityscape set.
On the remaining panel I added a stamped sun and sending sunshine sentiment, and included a die-cut cloud in the bottom corner. I tucked the missing jigsaw piece in on the bottom panel. Fun to make, but I think I'd better make another one soon before I forget the mechanics again. Or else I'd better stick strictly to the tutorial dimensions instead of winging it a bit. The tutorial is HERE.

Oh my gosh, how very special is this. I don't know LeAnna, Abby or Aric, but I am betting they will love every part of this fun folded creation. Sabrina, I am in awe of all the details and work you put into this, knowing how busy you are. Thank you for bringing this gem to the teaparty.
Please don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.

Wow Sabrina!! This perfectly integrates all the interests of this week's family. . .almost like a little album/keepsake. I love the bright colors and all your wonderful elements. It shows that you put a lot of thought and love into it!
Happy stamping to all you Splitcoasters who inspire me each day!
