Welcome back to the monthly Stampin’ UP! Demonstrators Fun Fold Blog Hop. If you love fun folds, you’ve come to a hop filled with really great projects by some very talented fellow demonstrators. When you finish here, I hope you will hop along with the rest of the demos using the links below.

It’s just a given that fun fold cards also post to the Creative Creases challenge. Debbie Mageed at Secret Stamper coordinates both this hop and the challenge. Hopefully, you will be inspired to upload your own fun fold project to the challenge!

Here’s my pop-up polar bear card:

MayMay, from MayMay Made It, has two videos for this fun fold. You can find the links for the step-by-step tutorial videos here and here. The first one explains the mechanism made with one sheet of cardstock and some scoring. The second one explains how to create the snowman. She even included a pattern for the mittens which can be printed from her blog post..

You can find my snowman blog post here.

Please note that the snowman card will fit inside a medium envelope and can be mailed with additional postage. However, both the snowman and polar bear cards will be hand-delivered to my great-nieces. Now, I just need to create one for my great-nephew. I’m trying to figure out how to make a Santa card next, so stay tuned.



Please refer to MayMay’s videos for the full set of measurements for the pop-and-twist inside of the card. Here’s a picture of the prototype that I kept so I have them handy when I create these cards:


  • The Night of Navy base measures 11 by 4-1/4 inches, scored at 5-1/2 inches to create a tent fold.
  • The Real Red cardstock mat for the front measures 4-1/8 by 5-3/8 inches.
  • The DSP pieces on the front of the card come from the Beary Christmas DSP, which is retiring soon. You can find the links to this set below in the supplies used section.
  • The pawprint piece of DSP measure 5-1/4 by 2-3/8 inches.
  • The two polar bear pieces of DSP measure 1-1/4 by 1-1/2 inches.
  • The gift piece of DSP measures 1-1/2 by 2-5/8 inches.
  • I trimmed a coordinating piece of DSP to 6 by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap.
  • Punch a 1-inch circle from coordinating DSP for the envelope seal, which will need to be run through your XYRON create-a-sticker.
  • I used a piece of scrap Real Red cardstock for the sentiment panel.


  • Dimensionals were used under the sentiment. Since I am hand-delivering this card, I can make it thicker than if it needed to be mailed.
  • I used multipurpose liquid glue to adhere all the paper pieces.
  • There’s a glue dot under the bow to hold it in place.
  • Adhere the DSP pieces to the Real Red mat.
  • Wrap a length of Real Red ribbon around the card so that it covers the space between the pawprint DSP and the other pieces. Secure with a mini glue dot.
  • Then, adhere the mat to the front of the card base.
  • After rubbing down a scrap piece of Real Red DSP with an embossing buddy, stamp the sentiment using VersaMark ink. The sentiment comes from the Stars at Night stamp set.
  • Cover the VersaMark ink with white embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
  • Crop the sentiment using the Stars at Night label die and adhere to the front of the card so it straddles the ribbon.
  • This card isn’t a quick and simple card by any means. However, MayMay’s tutorials prove that if you can trim and score cardstock, the twist-&-pop card is very doable! I hope you will give it a try!
