Flip cards created using a variety of Stampin’ Up! products.
Good morning, peeps and how’re things today? We all got hit by a dreadfull stomach bug last week, except for my eldest son, who never seems to get anything that’s doing the rounds. It was like a domino effect – first my youngest son, then the hubby and finally me! Boo – I don’t do being sick but luckily was able to take to my bed and hide for a while. We’re all back on our feet now though thankfully.
In the middle of all of this it was my youngest son’s 4th birthday. He was so excited. I was struggling with the shaker card I had in my head not working well on paper, so the final card I ended up making at midnight the night before his birthday is actually the original design I had before I decided to make a shaker card! Life’s just like that sometimes isn’t it? Lol.
I am pleased to say the little chap loved the card and it even got an “Awesome” when he flipped it and saw the reverse.
One of my class ladies had asked to do flip cards using framelits in my April class as she’d seen a few YouTube videos but not had the chance to give it a go. I have seen simpler flip cards where only one half of the shape is cut from the card base, but I love the Stampin’ Up! Circle Card thinlits die, which cuts from two sides with the middle left intact, so I used this as the template for my design.
It’s really simple to just take the measurements of the completed card made using the Circle Card thinlits and create with any shape framelit you like. So far I’ve tried labels, stars and butterflies! It’s great fun – like my post title says I’ve gone flippin’ mad over flip cards lol!
Ok well I’m off – eek less than an hour left before I have to pick up my little one from nursery. Hope you have a great day. Thanks for stopping by.
