Square Twister Card.

Card shape today is a 
Square Twister card.
Design sheet is Popcorn Bear
from Crafterscompanion.
The date on sheet says 2012 
so I have had in my stash for quite some time.
It came as a freebie with a craft magazine.
I cut all the individual squares out from the printed sheet
and glued to off cuts of white 160gsm card stock.
There were no instructions as such just a small picture of
what the finished picture should look like. 
There were 8 pieces to layer up which was quite easy
as gluing to the card stock first made them more stable.

Close up of the finished twister.
I adhered this to navy pearlised card stock and then
used 3D pads to raise on the card base.
The sheet had a matching design paper of the little duck
which I matted onto a  square white card base
before attaching the image.
Navy bow and pearls from stash.

I used the remaining strip of design paper
to decorate the inside of the card
along with a bear outline sticker from my stash
and then adhered the instruction picture 
on the inside of the  card too.

So that's my Granddaughters card done and dusted
and Card No. 6 in the pile for 2015.

What a sweet little card. I like those twister cards. You don't see the stuff for making them around in these parts though. I should check my stash. I'm sure I have one or two lurking around.
