Flip, Flop Fun Fold

Anything Goes Embossing with a twist of THINGS WITH WINGS

As you can see this card is designed specifically for this challenge with the twist of wings. Using StampinUp DSP throughout. I followed a tutorial from HERE and my card is in essence a CASE of the one in the tutorial. That said mine is a lot different to the one I CASEd. The demonstrator used CS as matting behind the DSP and I chose to leave that out as I didn’t want the weight or the bulk and instead attached PP directly to the card base. Then the smaller card has two label die cuts as I don’t have a stamp edge punch. Actually I have very few punches as I find them difficult to use due to arthritic hands. As well, I couldn’t figure out the measurements if I used a small die in the same was as she did using the punch. I did pop up my two image pieces and I added a bit of shimmer to them as well as to the embossed area using Perfect Pearls. My stamps are from an older GKD set and the sentiment is from a new Penny Black set that I haven’t yet really inked up. The butterfly is coloured using Inktense pencils but the leaves are inked. I masked the butterfly before stamping the leaves.

I’m quite pleased with how this one turned out and it may look difficult but in fact was quite easy to make. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

    1. I don’t always think of it either. But it works great with some DSP. You have some lovely cards on your blog, but there isn’t a way for a visitor to follow you. Perhaps you can add that feature?

  2. Awesome card. There is so much going on. The embossed DSP really adds a lot of texture. I took a quick look at the tutorial but plan to go back to watch the video and study the step outs. This looks like a fun project.

    1. Its an easy card to make when you get going although getting the triangles right can be challenging depending on the PP.


  3. Great fun fold card and love the butterflies. Thanks for the link to the tutorial. Punches are difficult to use especially with heavier weight cardstock although I still at times pull mine out.

  4. Such a beautiful card. The fun fold is fabulous (say that 5 times fast), and I am in LOVE with your color palette, one of my favorite combinations. Lots of wonderful work here, and great take on the challenge. Thanks so much for playing along with us over at Double D, hope to see you back again soon!
