How to Embellish a Valentine Twist Pop-Up Card

I found a fun card to share using E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser and Thin 3D Foam Squares – Mix Black to make a Valentine Twist Pop-Up Card. If you search “Twist Pop-Up Card Tutorial” on the internet, there will be a few to choose from.

Using the instructions, I assembled the mechanics and card base with E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser. It is a strong, permanent, clear double-sided adhesive that can handle paper construction like this.

For the pop-up (in brown): I cut 2.5 x 3.5 inch red paper to mat each panel. One was layered with stickers and inked edges with Fired Brick ink (all the red papers were inked the same). The second, I added stickers on a 2.25 x 3.25 inch piece of patterned paper.

I added a sticker and 3D Foam Key shape. Simply remove the liner and rub in the Pigment Powder Brown to “Wear Your Adhesives on the Outside” for a shimmery effect.

The last panel, I die-cut a heart into the red paper and add a sticker sentiment in the lower right corner. Fill small flower sequins into the Keepsake Envelopes Mix Small and close the flap. The tiny sequins will fall out so apply E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser around the edges of the envelope and (back of) heart window to seal. Place it over the heart window from the back side. Add Thin 3D Foam Squares – Mix Black and center onto the last brown panel.

Add the rest of the red panels on the brown pop-up panel using E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser. Then place onto the twist mechanics of the card base.

Repeat the same shaker instructions for the card front with Keepsake Envelopes Mix Medium and a large heart die. Add Creative Photo Corners Gold on each corner of Card Panel.

Oh, later I decided to add red glitter to 3D Foam Hearts in the center for some sparkle on each heart shaker! Also known as “Wear Your Adhesives on the Outside.” See how it is applied by watching our video below…

Here’s another look…from the front and the inside.
