Thursdays with Kim - Flip Flop Card Tutorial

Hi girls! Happy Thursday! Today I've got a fun tutorial based on a card I've seen online!
First start with a piece of cardstock measuring 5 1/2" x 6 3/4". Place your cardstock at landscape. Score 2 lines one at 2 3/4" and the other at 4". Don't score them all the way, just an 1 1/4".


Turn your cardstock other side and repeat the same thing. Now you`ll have to cut a line measuring 1 3/8" and the end of the cut must join with the score line. Repeat the cut on each score line. (The second line will start off to 4" and end at 5 3/8").


You need now to connect your 2 cut lines, as shown below. (Each side)


Don't forget that your greeting must be to the verso side. (So your written message will be on the front. Now take a 2 3/4" x 3 3/4" cardstock and affix it onto the cut rectangle. (I used 2 cardstock because the first one was too dark). Write your message. (I used a stamp, my handwriting is not great!)


Turn your paper the other side and embelish the rectangle. (I used more stamps and some Kaisercraft Rhinestone)

Fold the card like this. (Use a bonefolder to make neat score.)


Now embelish your finish card! Here's what the card should look like closed. Mine was done in a pinch just to give you an idea of this type of card fold!


...And now when you open it!



Cute isn't? Hope you like this quick tut! Enjoy! Hugs and kisses...
