WCMD - and the card I made on that day

Yesterday I was engrossed with all the cards I saw on fb and elsewhere marking this special day in the cardmakers' calendar, and one technique that really caught my eye was the Pop and Pivet card.  I saw several of these cards, some using Stampin' Up! products that looked great, and one video I watched used Kaisercraft products.  This video shows the method I used to make my pop and pivot card, shown by Collette Mitrega on youtube.  She is an excellent tutor, because here is my card:


 I used paper by Kaisercraft for all the sections - from the 6.5" x 6.5" paper pad, Holly Jolly.


As the front of the card is lifted, the folded inside pages begin to unfold.



This is the inside fully extended.  I do have to wonder though, how do you display this card - I guess you have to keep it closed and then when it's opened - Surprise!

It was fun to make, and if you are interested, do check out Colette's video tutorial!
