I had been reading a recent post over at Art Impressions and liked the idea of a ‘flip’ card. I didn’t have the die, but thought I’d give it a go on my own.
After measuring the card front to ensure it would fit all the elements, I cut a ‘u’ shape to give me the flip panel. The photo below shows the flip panel.
AI’s Dog Stackers stamp was copic coloured, and perfect for my take on the ‘flip’ card. I love this fun stamp. You can’t help but smile at all those cute dogs!
I then made 3 panels layered won black. One for the front, and one for each side of the flip panel. I made them to fit the stamps / dies, I was using.
I die cut ‘Happy Birthday’ from local company (Catchy Crafts), another favourite being vertical which allows for lots of different placements and adding something special. It was attached to the extended section of the front flap.
The sentiment for the back of the ‘flip’ was W Plus 9 – Fierce and Fabulous set, as well as 2 thin red strips.
Inside the card, I added black card to give extra strength as the card is getting heavier and the folds at the sides are a little narrow. I also stamped and coloured the dog from the bottom of the stack and added a computer generated extra sentiment.
I was so happy with the way this card turned out and look forward to trying the ‘flip’ idea again. I hope you liked it too.
