In my last post, I mentioned that I went to Tennessee for a stamping convention. OK keep that in your mind for a minute and let me say that I really like step cards and tri-shutter cards, flip cards, etc. but hate cutting them by hand, don't you. You have to cut the CS, measure, mark, and don't forget the X-acto knife, and cut straight lines. Now, I don't feel X-acto knife challenged, however these types of cards take time to prep and cut. And we all want things in a hurry and of course, you want the card perfect. Right???? OK, back to the convention. I happened upon The Stamp Doctors booth. Well, The Stamp Doctor has designed a die for all of us who love the flip card design. In fact they have 2 die designs for flip cards. So, I spied these and I bought one of the designs.
This is the design I bought. This die is easy to use and it makes a really great card.There are three dies in the package. Plus the this design has been made to work with Spellbinders Labels Eighteen.
Let me share the flip card I made using this die.
I covered the ends of the card with DP. I also looked at some of the Sizzix dies that I have and saw this Joy die and determined it will fit in the label area of the closed card. Perfect for the sentiment. I used Cobalt Blue Microfine Glitter to define the letters in the sentiment.(Got that sentiment on a tad crooked.)
OK, when you flip the card open, this cute snowman pops over. I used a stamp from PrintWorks and it's an older stamp but I still love it. I added the blue oval to be able to make the snowman pop out at you. I added punched snowflakes and glittered them up to make this card glisten.
Here is a side view. This flip card design is darling and I love the fact it stands on its own.
Well time to prepare for a class on Saturday - A glittery Christmas ornament with a poinsettia topper and a box to store it in or to use to gift it!! I will share that with you on Sunday.
Thanks so much for stopping in today.
