For today's challenge to make a twist and pop fold card, I remembered that a friend of mine asked for a card with this adorable little fairy digi from Mo's Digital Pencil. What's more fun that a pop up card for a little girl? I printed out the digi and very lightly sponged a sky BG and colored her in and added some Wink of Stella. Then I followed the video tutorial here: https://youtu.be/sHW9l7d5iEY
It was surprisingly easy. I always think fancy folds are going to be difficult and then when I actually do them I wonder why I don't do more. I put some fun DP inside and added some stars punched from really glittery CS. One of my favorite cards of all time.

I do actually like fun folds although there are some I really struggle with - easy to cut and hard to finish, like the tri-shutter. I thought this one has huge impact for something that actually is quite easy - glad you enjoyed it too. Pop-up cards are certainly such an extra fun-factor for the recipient, and I bet the lucky birthday girl will just love this. The glittery stars inside are a great addition - as if she'd been waving her wand inside the card :D.
