DAWN’S FANCY FLAP CARD

Howdeeeee

Do I sound like MInnie Pearl…..OK some of you may be too young to even know who Minnie Pearl was…anyway I was trying for that.

I wanted to share this card from Dawn cause as she said it just too cute… and apparently she received it from DARLENE McCALLUM…( I do like to give credit and Dawn does also on her video).

I really like the black one with the houndstooth check….and while she is using designer paper I am thinking we could also use the embossing folders on solid paper or ink the folder ..both would ways would work in case you don’t have any designer paper that works with your images/greetings. Just a suggestion.

 

BASICS

1……5 ½ X 8 ½  FOLDED AT 4 ¼  BASIC CARD STOCK

1…..4 X 5 ¼ PIECE DESIGNER PAPER DECORATIVE

1……5 x 5 ½ PIECE COORDINATING PAPER… SCORE THIS PIECE ON THE 5 ” SIDE AT ¾  THEN MAKE A TICK MARK AT ON THAT SAME SIDE AT 2 ¾  AT THE TOP  AND AT THE BOTTOM ( SEE VIDEO) THEN ROTATE CARD TO 5 ½ SIDE AND MAKE ONE MORE TICK MARK AGAIN AT 2 ¾ ….THAT SHOULD DO IT…USING THE TICK MARKS CUT THE POINT ON YOUR CARD…AGAIN SEE VIDEO …

Dawn is using the square nestibilites for the cut out on the flaps… I however, did not have them with me so I did have my SIZZIX THINLITS FLIPPER cards, which has three concentric squares so it worked just fine…. SEE…

my FANCY FLAP INSIDE GREETING… oh and note that I misspelled HUGS… now I write this all the time so you would think I could spell it but hey I was under pressure and do do happens.

I don’t have time to try it but I am pretty sure that you could do this also with a round cut out as well .  Ok I made time…lol.. cause I had to see for myself …and I used the same format that Dawn shows for the square…I used nestibilities circles number 3 and 4 from the center …It works well I think and I like it almost  as much as the square… I also think some of label templates would work just as well just check the sizes..You can see that I love the little wooden birds embellishments and I use stamp pad ink to color them.. You can get the little wooden birds from IMPRESS RUBBER STAMPS on line, just look up wooden birds.  I have also seen some of these wooden embellishments at Michaels.
