Happy Easter

 Good morning and a very happy Easter Sunday. Today I'm sharing a Twist and Pop card made with the fabulous new Easter Farm collection from Relatively Thoughtful.

I started by choosing my papers. I thought these would look really nice on a kraft base card. This one is 6x6 and it will open from the top.
These gorgeous images are what made me want to make this kind of card. They've all been trimmed to 3.5 x 2.75. The backing piece is 3 5/8 x 11.5. It's been scored at 2 7/8, 5 3/4, and 8 5/8.
I've made the mechanism out of a thinner kraft card. It needs to be strong but flexible as there will be a lot of opening and closing.
I always use a strong wet glue to hold this in place. Red liner tape would work too but it's not as forgiving if you need to move it a little.
You now need to mark where to put your glue for the image strip. It's stuck on bottom left and top right.
Phew! It's always a relief when it's stuck down and it opens and closes easily. You can now work out the paper sizes needed for the top and bottom. In theory, they should be the same as the mechanism gets stuck on the centre point,  but to be honest, no-one is ever going to notice if they are slightly different. (And the cuties that are going in will have everyone ooohing and ahhing)
These are such lovely, fresh papers, and look at those cute critters! (ooohhh ahhhhhh) The base is all made now, so it just needs embellishing.
As always with Sally's collections there are loads of cut-apart sheets. I've also used some Little Birdie flowers and there's a great selection in the store.
Here's the front of the card.
And the inside - so cute!
I wish I could wear a hat with such style!

It's hard to believe that all this folds flat for postage isn't it.
As always the collection is available in both digital and paper formats in the Relatively Thoughtful store.

Have a lovely day whatever you are doing, and a very happy Bank Holiday weekend. Thanks so much for looking x
