Today’s video was a request from one of my YouTube subscribers who had seen one of Srushti Patil’s videos. Peggie asked if I could make a video but in inches. I’m always up for a challenge and I asked Peggie to point me in the right direction so I could see the video. The video was less than four minutes long and I just couldn’t understand what was allowing the card to “flip”.
There was only one thing for me to do and that was to make the card – see last card before video! Once I had twigged how it worked, I was totally sold on the idea. I used the Classic Cloche Stamp Set to create my first card but decided to do the “flip unit” on only one side inside the card instead of both sides like Srushti’s card.
Once I’d made my Classic Cloche card, I had all sorts of ideas of what could be done with this design. These ideas included putting the flip unit on the front of the card; turning the card horizontally with the flip unit opening to the left-hand side or the right-hand side, on the outside or the inside of the card. It would be very easy to incorporate a pocket inside the card to hold a gift card. If I’d had more time, I would loved to have made these variations. The triple flip card would suit other occasions like birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, etc. They would make a great new baby announcement card with photographs being added to the panels rather than stamped or die-cut images.
Without a doubt, this has to be one of the, if not the, most versatile card ever. Although the card I made for the video is a single-sided triple flip card, it would be very easy to make a double-sided triple flip card because both sides are constructed in exactly the same way! I used some of the Sale-a-bration Be Dazzling 6″ x 6″ Specialty Paper to create the “doily” on the front of each of my cards!
In the video I demonstrated how I successfully die-cut the doily which is from the Encircled in Beauty Dies. The first time I tried die-cutting one of the doilies using the Be Dazzling cardstock, I found it very frustrating trying to get all the bits removed. Fortunately, I could see what a great effect these two made together and persevered until I had it sussed.
You may have noticed from the photographs of the two cards from the Gingerbread & Peppermint bundle that I changed the sizes of my middle and top layers. I did this so I had more work surface available, especially with the two small cards that create the triple flip unit. I’m really pleased with how this card turned out, especially the Cinnamon Cider card – it’s my favourite!
I hope you like this card and enjoy the video. That’s it from me today. I hope you enjoy a very blessed Sunday and I look to be back with you soon. In the meantime, please take care and stay safe. Happy crafting.
