A Flip Photo Card

Well...  I hinted at another post so here it is......

This is the front page of a card.You pull the tab on the right and......

The scond page is exposed..........then pull tab further......

the third page......

the fourth page and then

finally the fifth and last page..........

There is room on each page of the card for photo's and/or journalling as desired.

The card was requested by a customer for a class..... she had seen something similar at a Scrapbook fair. I cannot remember exactly where in cyberspace I drew my inspiration. If I find the sites I visited and adapted then I'll ammend this post to include a link.

Anyway, a week or so ago I sat down with four lovely ladies and they made the card (took us quite a while but they were all very pleased with the end result). To make the card they used the following Stampin' Up! supplies:

Stamp Set - Season of Joy, Basic Phrases, Fun & Fast Notes, Best Yet, Punches Three
Ink - Old Olive, Chocolate Chip Classic Stampin' Pad, VrsaMark, Jet Black StazOn Ink Pad
Cardstock - Baja Breeze, Old Olive, Ruby Red, Whisper White, Cardstock Weight Vellum
DSP - Holiday Treasures
Accessories - Rhinestone Brads, Gold Brads, Clear Stampin' Embossing Powder, numerous Stampin' Up! punches.

Off to put up the Christmas tree now (hubby is home from being away - otherwise it wuld have been up December 1st).

Till next time....

Summer Mini Fun

I have been having a play with some of the product from the Summer Mini that was launched 2 days ago and thought I would show you the result of me staying up late last night (a 2am finish..... but I had fun..... didn't realise the time!)

This is what is affectionately known as a Tri Fold Shutter Card.
 It's extremely easy to make and when folded, fit's into a standard size envelope.

Here is a photo of the card when it is closed.

To make this card you will need the following Stampin' Up! Products:

Stamp Set - For Everything (page 13 Summer Mini), Basic Phrases
Ink Pad - Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquiose
Markers - Summer Sun, Pink Passion, Only Orange, Chocolate Chip
DSP - Kaleidoscope (page 16 Summer Mini)
Cardstock - Apricot Appeal, Pink Passion, Pixi Pink, Tempting Turquiose, Whisper White
Accessories - Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Stamp-a-ma-jig

Hope you like this card, as much as I enjoyed making it!

(and you know.... you may get lucky and see another post or two today. I have been creating things, I just haven't got around to posting them here so stay tuned to see what I can photograph and get up here before midnight tonight!)
