Gift Pivot Twist Panel Birthday Card!

 Hello and Welcome. Today's card features Karen Burniston's Gift Pivot Panels and Twist Panel Pop-Up. This was my first time using the Gift Pivot Panels die set and it was also my first time adding a Pivot Panel die to the Twist Panel Pop-Up. I really like how the card turned out and I think that this will be a technique I use again and again.

For this card, I made an A2 sized card base. I added some patterned paper for the background, then created a border using Karen Burniston's Border Blends - Party dies and a different patterned paper. 

I die cut the white scalloped panels for the twist panel pop-up from smooth white cardstock. Then I die cut the Gifts from various scrap patterned papers I had on hand. I added glitter ribbons and bows to the gifts. 

I used Karen Burniston's Celebrate die to make the "Celebrate" sentiment on the top panel, cutting it once from dark blue glitter cardstock and once from black cardstock. 

I used Karen Burniston's Rectangles - Crosshatch dies to make the signature area at the bottom of the card. 

I tried to keep things simple since this pop up has so much going on with the mechanism not only twisting to open but then the gift pivot panel opening. 

For the out side of the card, I kept with the same theme, creating a side border using the same patterned papers. I added four presents down the border side and added the glitter trim from the border blends die just like on the inside of the card. 

I added the "Happy Birthday to You" sentiment from Honey Bee Stamps Bitty Buzzwords. 

When I decided to make this card, I thought it would be waaay more complicated, but it was really super easy to make! 

Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
