Today, I am excited to share with you how to make a Flip Top Fancy Fold card. This card requires a full sheet of 8 1/2″ x 11″ card stock. Below, you will see an illustration of the score lines and areas that need to be trimmed away. Please don’t think this is a difficult card. It, absolutely, is not. Just watch the video and follow the illustration below…super easy!
I chose to use Stampin’ Up’s Inked & Tiled Stamp set for my images and some sentiments from the Timeless Arrangements Stamp set. Most of the work is done by Inked Botanicals 6″ x 6″ Designer Series paper. I used three different patterns throughout the card. The front greeting is die cut using the rectangles from Nested Essentials Dies making it easy to layer. I embellished the front with Glossy Dots Assortment.
The video below will demonstrate how to score and cut your card base, as well as, assemble the card. Further down in the post, you will find picture with more hints for making this card, as well as, a second card. You will, also, find the supplies, measurements and instructions with a downloadable PDF. Leave me a comment, I would love to know your thoughts regarding this Flip Top Fancy Fold card.
Inside Layers of Flip top Fancy Fold
With the top flipped open, I attached the layer of the second design of Designer Series Paper to the card front. In the original card, this layer is left with just the Designer Series Paper. But, because I wanted to add another sentiment with a floral image, I added a second layer of Very Vanilla. In my second card below, you will see I did not add the Very Vanilla.
On the inside of the card, I attached my second piece of the first Designer Series Paper to the underside of the flap. Next, I attached the third design of Designer Series Paper on the left of the inside . On my layer of Very Vanilla, I used the largest floral image from Inked & Tiled. Since I wanted the images to be multi-colored, I used my Stampin’ Write Markers to color the images. Remember, if you do this, it is best to “huff” on the stamp right before stamping. The warm of the breath, moistens the stamps so that your image stamps well. I then attached this layer to the right of the inside.
