Pivot Twist Pop-up Technique Cookie Cutter Christmas Card

Tonight I am teaching this technique at Terri's "Tuesday Technique Night" class.  I am SO looking forward to it.  This is one of those fun Pivot Twist Pop-up Techniques.

It's pretty easy to do, once you figure out what you are doing. My very first one turned out but the ones after that got better, easier and quicker to do.

I hate to do this to you but I'm sending you to the link of the last card I made using this technique.  I want you to go there because I've added some time saving tips.  That card is here.

When you are there and have read and made note of the tips then go to the link that is on there to see how to do the technique.  You will find it rather easy.  I had viewed many video's on how to do this technique but I found the one I've linked there to be the easiest.  Some were complicated and wanted you to trim up the mechanism.  I didn't want to do any trimming, I didn't want to trim off too much or find later that I should have trimmed more because it's hanging over the edge.  So when I found one you didn't need to trim up, I was hooked.  I worked with it, worked through any issues and then shared it with you.

For my card I used the "Falling Snow" embossing folder.  I used the "Candy Cane Lane" Decorative Series Paper, and I used the Gingerbread boy from the "Cookie Cutter Christmas" set and matching punch.  That punch is why you are seeing 4 gingerbread boys.  If I had to cut them by hand there would probably only be 2 of them!!! LOL 

I hope you give this technique a try!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
