This challenge calls for using trees so I decided to use my new Lawn Fawn flippin awesome die to make a flip card.
Initially I followed along with a video as this is the first time I’ve used the die. It isn’t hard but I wanted to be sure I had it right. I cut all the pieces out and made the flip part ensuring it was working properly before I adhered it to the card front. Then I started to decorate the panels. Cut out the trees and all the other bits and slowly added them to each panel. Used Bonnies idea of gilding flakes for the maple leaf – worked like a charm. Added a white panel on the last flip (not shown) and stamped the word friend from one of GKD sets. Also used the sentiment for the bottom of the card from the same set. Added a tiny bow and it was finished. Hubby most impressed. One small detail was that my slide kept getting stuck as I used a thick CS for cutting out the shape. Used a trick from a DT and added a bit of acetate so now it slides perfectly.
