Hello Flip Card

Hi everyone! I’m back with a quick card I created. I started by placing mint green cardstock on top of the Ornate Flip-its #2 Card Diecut and ran through the Diecut Machine.

Next I cut 1 5/8″x4 1/4″, 1″x4 1/4″ and 1/2″x4 1/4″ pieces of patterned cardstock. I also cut from vellum a Tear Drop Circle Diecut with the diecut machine and adhered all pieces to the “flip-its” section of the card.

I inked the Hello stamp with Wicked Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of white cardstock and inked the edges with Ice Jade Chalk Ink and adhere to card. I cut four flowers and a leaf sprig from Crinoline fabric with the Journaling Cards Flowers and Leaves Diecuts and inked a glass tray with Salmon and Posy Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks. I added water to each color and place flowers into ink mixture and then removed and let dry.
I cleaned the glass tray and ink with Shamrock and Citronella Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks. I added water to each ink and placed the leaf sprig diecut in each color. and removed and let dry.

 I added a drop of adhesive to the center of three of the flowers and placed each flower on top of each other and pinched in the center and fluff. I glued the leaf sprig with only three leaves to the back of the flower and adhered next to the Hello sentimentI finished the front of the card by adding a sequin and flat back pearl to the center of the flower.

I cut a strip of white cardstock for the backside of the “flip-it”section of the card and adhere and added a small flower and two leaves to the white cardstock. I finished off with a sequin and flat back pearl to the center of the flower.

As always if you have any questions or just want to leave a comment please let me know.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by, hope your Thursday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

Lets Celebrate! Card

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a card I created for Eileen’s birthday that was a couple of weeks ago! 

I started by cutting a Ornate, Flip-its #2 Card Diecut (retired) from double sided patterned card. 

On the back of the card I adhered to strips of patterned cardstock and printed from my computer the sentiments “It’s Your Birthday!” and “Lets Celebrate”. I cut out the “It’s Your Birthday!” sentiment and glued to the strip.

From a piece of vellum I cut the Spellbinders Beaded Circles Diecut (retired but found a few on Amazon) and adhered to the flip part of the card along with two strips of patterned cardstock.

The digital image of the vintage women I purchased from Lisa’s Altered Art which you can find HERE. I printed and fussy cut the image of the women with one of the party hat out and adhered to the card. 

I added Stickles to the collars and sleeves of each of the women’s outfits and let dry.

I cut from various patterned cardstock a flower and leaf sprig from the Flower and Leaves Journaling Cards Diecuts, inked the edges of the flower with gold ink and covered the leaf sprig completely with Stickles (let dry first) and adhere both to the corner of the card.

I added the sequin, Glossy Dot and thread to the flower and finished by gluing the sentiment to the bottom of the card. My card got to Eileen a “little late” but that was ok because she got to celebrate her birthday just a little bit longer. 😉 As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Wednesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!
