Breaking Bad

As promised last time, here is a card that is a little bit different

I decided to go down the 'themed' route for AJ's birthday card

Boys cards are so hard, but when they have grown out of dinosaurs, tractors and cars, the task of a handmade card gets even trickier

This 17 year old loves Breaking Bad, he's watched the entire show 3 times over, every episode of every season, three times

So there was no doubt in my mind that Walter White had to make an appearance

I got the idea of a 'pop and twist' card from my lovely and very talented friend Linda, you can see hers on her blog HERE, along with lots of other gorgeous cards

I found a tutorial online and then altered the measurements to make a larger, square card

You open the card as normal and then the little mechanism inside twists and pops open a little book, plenty of room for extra images, quotes, verses etc

All the images are downloaded from google and printed out

AJ said he "absolutely loved " his card, so job well done methinks,  I will have to do a lot of thinking about next year though !

I have a couple more cards to share over the next few days then I will have some christmas cards to share ( scouts honour Jan xxx)

Love and chemistry



  1. Fantastic card Tracey, no wonder he loved this card!, yet to make one myself, love the images used.

  2. Hi Tracey
    super card - I really like the pop and twist style, I've made 2 now under instruction. Yet to fly solo. What a great set of images for a man's card. I especially like the most stylised one on the cover.
    Good job you warned me about the Christmas cards - now I've got to get busy 😉

  3. Fabulous card, pleased you managed to follow the tutorial ok. Thank you for the link. I have made four of these types of cards now, I think they are a great design. xx


Thankyou for stopping by, if you care to leave a comment, that would be appreciated too xxx
