Thanksgiving Gourd Twist Pop-Up

Good morning friends

I was looking through my patterned paper stacks and this gourd paper caught my eye. I thought it would make a great Thanksgiving Card ... here is the front.

As the card is opened you get a glimpse of the Pop-Up, which is sideways.

When the card is fully open, the Pop-Up twists and pops up in the centre of the card!

I had a coordinating gourd embellishment in my stash, so added it and a leaf to the centre circle, then stamped and cut a banner. This banner is as wide as you would want to go or it will bend as the card is closed. The label where we will sign our names is on the left, as I didn't want any edges catching the banner.

The Twist Circle Pop-Up die by Karen Burniston allows you to make Pop-Up cards fairly quick and easy. This one didn't take any time at all!
