Hi Everyone! I have another card using the new Bright & Beautiful stamp set for you! I really like this set and the matching framelits! As I was going through my Cherry Cobbler card stock last week I found two flip flop card bases that I made a really long time ago! I decided I needed to make something with it right away and reached for the Bright & Beautiful stamp set again.
If you haven't made a flip flop card (sometimes called a swing card) it is really very simple. Start with a piece of card stock cut to 5 1/2 by 6 3/4. The tricky part is cutting out the center. You need to bring the card stock into your scoring tool or cutter and place it at the 2 3/4 inch mark. Now score 1 1/4 from the top and again 1 1/4 from the bottom. Do this to both sides. Then turn the card stock and with the cutting blade cut from the score marks to within 1 1/4 inches of the side, and then turn the card stock and cut down to with in 1 1/4 inches from the bottom, then turn and cut to the score line. Do this from both sides. There is a tutorial on SplitcoastStampers, which is where I learned how to make this card.
You can then decorate the card any way you like.
Here is the front close up. I used Versa Mark and Cherry Cobbler embossing powder. The accent colors are Soft Sky and Early Espresso.
Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding ribbon and a star for some extra pretty. The star is left over from the July My Paper Pumpkin kit.
