Happiness Always.........

I apologise now for the Mega Post but I thought I would do a Tutorial for you on the Flip Card....

You can see lots of these cards on other Blogs and Splitcoaststampers but I haven't made one before because I didn't like that it didn't stand up. I do like the cards that stand up!!! But Hey! I thought of a way of attaching it to a Base card, so I thought I would show you Guys. Thanks to Tracey - Who emailed me last week and told me a way of uploading more than 5 photos at a time, this is all now on one Post! Thanks Tracey it was so Kind of you - It had been a Bug Bear of mine when uploading to my Blog......
This is the Flip Card - Standing up Hee! The Stamp Set is a Gorgeous one - Happiness Always Level 3 Hostess Stamp Set - Email me and I will tell you how to get your hands on this Stamp Set for FREE!
I added an insert as normal. The cardstock is So Saffron, Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White. The inks are the same but the butterfly is stamped first in Regal Rose and then Rose Red is stamped over the top with the other butterfly. This set is a Two Step Stamping one!
This is another Triangle Box, You can find the instructions on Splitcoast stampers site.
Finally a Slider Card - I have made 25 of these!

Right Then! Let's get Started.



Cut some Regal Rose Cardstock and Chocolate Chip Cardstock 10cm x 8.5cm each.
Stamp on the Chocolate Chip layer and use a Border punch for the top, I used our Scallop Edge Love it! I added a layer of So Saffron 9.5cm x 8cm, then some So Saffron paper 9cm x 7.5cm.

Punch out a Round Tab (I changed the colour of mine on the final card to Chocolate Chip!) I used the Totally Tabs Stamp Set and then punched it out with the Round Tab Punch.

This is the hidden message layer 9cm x 13cm, I stamped just the top half, in Regal Rose, So Saffron and added a Curvy Verses in Chocolate Chip.
Tricky Part coming up......

Take hold of the whisper white layer and lay over the top the Regal Rose and then the Chocolate Chip layers. The Chocolate Chip layer needs to be over lapping the Regal Rose by about 1.5cm ish.....

HOLD TIGHT! Keeping the layers together use a 1/16 handheld circle punch and punch a hole, I did mine in the first full scallop.


This is what the back is like when you are holding all the layers together - Did I say HOLD TIGHT!

I had to let go of mine to Photograph it for you but YOU MUST KEEP HOLDING IT and Punch at the same time. Insert a Gold brad and split it at the back of the whisper white layer.
Turn over the layers and twist around the chocolate chip layer so you can add the double sided tape. Add the tape to the back of the stamped whisper white layer as well.
Take off the backing of the Chocolate Chip layer and Twist it back around to the front, making sure you line up the card evenly around the whisper white layer.
Then take a normal sized base card, ie half a sheet of A4 cut in half and then folded in half. I used So Saffron. Take off the backing tape of the whisper white layer and add to the base card as shown. There you have a card that has a Flip Front but even better stands Up!!
Decorate the Front as you wish. I used a couple of nestie circles and the sentiment is Sincere Salutations. I LOVE these Butterflies. They are stamped on Whisper White, First in Regal Rose and then Rose Red......
Add to the front of the card half over the centre. Only add foam pads to the top half and then it will move when you pull on the Round Tab Punch.....
This is what happens when you pull on the Round Tab Punch - It justs fits in the Stampin Up Envelope.......
Hope you found this Tutorial Helpful - Sorry for it being such a Long Post!!!

Thanks for looking,
