3 Clover's Thursday Challenge #13-May Flower Flip Card


Welcome to challenge #13 at 3 Clovers Thursday Challenge. The challenge this week is" May Flowers". And guess what...no cheating for me this week...I actually included flowers on my card LOL! (ummm...I sort of forgot to include ribbon or lace on my challenge card for last week...I guess it was my week to be an airhead LOL) Don't you hate it when you make a challenge card...and then realize you didn't follow the challenge? As Ida said to me...the DP paper I used looked lacey, so that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

I found THIS tutorial on how to make a flip card and just had to try it! What a fun card and fun to open and find the surprise message inside! Wendybell at Wickedly Wonderful Creations made a wonderful video tutorial that was very easy to follow. You just have to give it a try!

The top half of this card is hinged with a brad and flips up to reveal a message. I changed the orientation of the card to fit my image. This is a standard A2 card. The video demonstrates a vertical card, but it was very easy to adjust to a horizontal card.

I used pieces and parts of stamps on this card. The image is the last hedgie on the PB stamp (series of 3 hedgies) , the sentiment inside is part of a sentiment also. The hedgie is cut out and mounted on dimensionals as well as the little FOR YOU gift tag on the flowers.

I used lots of little tools to make this card, including my Spooky Fence punch by Martha Stewart. This fence is just NOT spooky when punched in white...looks springy I thought! Martha has a different fence punch that has all the boards nicely lined up for those who prefer a new, whitewashed picket fence! Mine is falling down a wee bit.

This is what my card looks like opened up. The circle image stays on the outside of the fence and the light green top piece tucks under the fence.

Close up of the brad hinge. The brad holds all the pieces of cardstock together.

Sue this is SUPER! I love all the details! I never would have used that punch for anything other than Halloween -- and here you go and use it perfectly-- not at all SPOOKY, a perfectly shabby little white picket fence -- perfect for a spring card!
