Paisley Prints Flip Card

I know!   I promised this tutorial after the Control Freaks Tour de Freaks blog hop last month and it has taken me MUCH longer to find time to pull this together than I anticipated.  I had a big stamp camp last weekend and that, combined with regular classes and developing Create with Connie and Mary projects has consumed all my time lately!  But enough excuses…right?


Here is the Halloween Flip Card I made for the Tour as a reminder…



So, I thought I'd change up the holidays and make one for Christmas!  Here is the finished picture!



Here are the general supplies used to make THIS card.  I did not include them on the tutorial because I figured you'd be decorating your own!


The base cards is Always Artichoke.  I adhered Candy Cane Christmas Designer Paper to the same size Baja Breeze cardstock in order to get extra sturdiness from the flip portion of the card. 


The front design element, I stamped the tree from Paisley Prints in Always Artichoke on Baja Breeze cardstock, then added a torn piece of Whisper White on the bottom for snow.  I added a Square Fire Rhinestone Brad to the top of the tree.  I layered it on Always Artichoke and then Cherry Cobbler cardstocks.  On the front, I added a snowflake cut from Northern Frost Strip Die and a Cherry Cobbler Designer Button that I tied with Linen Thread.


At the top pullout tag portion,  I stamped Make Merry from Grateful Greetings stamp set with Cherry Cobbler ink and punched with the Small Tag Punch, it is layered on the Large Tag Punch of Always Artichoke cardstock, then placed on the tag.  The ribbon pull is the Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon.  I punched thru the tag layers with the Crop-A-Dile to add the ribbon.


In the bottom window, I stamped Christmas Greetings from Grateful Greetings stamp set in Basic Black.

All the scoring and cutting dimensions are on the downloadable tutorial with pictures of the steps!  Hope you enjoy and make one for yourself.  I can tell you once you've made one, you'll see how easy it really is to make!  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think or if you make one yourself…I'd love to see it!
