Card with a Twist!

My card today has nothing to do with Stampin' Up! It has to do with a good friend who drew out the template for me and gave it to me at lunch the other day. We ate at a Greek restaurant and I had wonderful Dolmades, the best I've ever eaten. 

Afterward we went to a little craft store and I bought the stick-on words that I love. I got them in every color there was: black, copper, gold, silver and white! Carole bought her favorite paper, Graphic 45. 

Now, on with my card...it's called a "pop up book card". Here's what it looks like on the outside...normal A2 card. At Just Add Ink #419...Just Add A "Twist", you will see my twist.

and the inside from above...the twist is it's 3D inside!

If you are interested in making a card like this, just follow the instructions here. Thank you, Just Add Ink, for this delightful twist challenge. I'm grateful you didn't ask me to do the Twist...Chubby Checker I am not...chubby...maybe!

Thanks for stopping by today and I'll see you tomorrow. If you have any questions about the paper I used, ask away!
