Twist & Pop Card - El Dia de los Muertos

Coming from New Mexico I love the holidays influenced by the Mexican culture, specifically, El Dia de los Muertos which honors those who have passed from this life by celebrating their life.  So for Halloween and El Dia holidays I have made a twist and pop card.  (Really I've been seeing them around and have been dying to make one).

I also wanted to enter something in this week's Between The Folds Weekly Challenge--to use CTMH's new Jeepers Creepers paper pack.  Here is my Twist & Pop card using the new Sugar Skull stamp set:

Next is beginning to open the Twist & Pop Card:

Finally a look at the little monsters:

Finally, if you have a Cricut Explorer, here is the cut file for the Twist & Pop cards:  Start with a 4" x 12" card stock for card base.  Have fun and leave me a comment if you make a twist and pop card!
