Artwork with an Attitude Featuring Flip Flaps

Welcome to the Stampers with an Attitude Artwork with an Attitude Featuring Flip Flaps Blog Hop.  This month I am following  Sheila Bennett.  Our blog hop is a circular hop.  You just click on the link to the next blog on the bottom of this post and go visit the next blog.  If you get lost, I have all of the participating blogs near the bottom of my post.  Hope you enjoy seeing what our team has made for you.

This month our Stampers With an Attitude is  featuring artwork using the Close to My Heart Flip Flaps.  Flip flaps are wonderful inventions where you can add tons of extra pictures to each of your scrapbook layouts. I decided to use the 4" x 6" Flip Flaps (Z4114).   

If you know me or follow my blog, you will know that one of these days I am going to bring out all of my pictures and get them on scrapbook pages.  But not today.  I live to make cards and other types of art.  I really just like the creative process.  Playing with art relaxes me and is a form of meditation.

So, now to the flip flaps.  I wanted to do something different.  Here is what I came up with.

A flip flap card!  I thought of this while I was watching Turbo with my grandkids.  Why not make a card that can open up to extra pages using a flip flap?  Here's the card with the flip flap open.

See how it opens up to two more pages?  Gives the card a bit more personality doesn't it?  Here's the inside of the card as well.

You just have to decorate the inside of your cards!  It takes a little bit of time but the card really has a WOW factor.

Want to find out how I made this card?  I used the CTMH Babycakes Paper Pack (X7173B) and the Babycakes My Stickease (X7173C).

My card is 5" x 7" so I cut a piece of Sunset cardstock 10" x 7" and folded it in half to make the card base.  I added the cute brown scallops from the Stickease to the sides of the front.  The top and bottom strip is a portion of the zip strip that comes with this paper pack.

I used a little smaller than 4" x 6" paper as the base for the front and back of the panel in the flip flap.  With the added matting and stickease, I wanted to leave a little extra room to accommodate the layers.  I cut the edges of the flip flap where the adhesive is so that it would not show on the card when it is closed.  I wanted the adhesive to be beneath the panel that is placed over it and this panel overlaps the scalloped stickease that is already adhered to the cardstock.  I hope that makes sense.

Look hard.  Can you see the adhesive? It is only attached to the card base and not the stickease.  Now the panel lying to the left of the picture will fill over the adhesive and hide it.  That is how I wanted it to look.  It makes the card look cleaner to me.

Now, hop on over to our next Blog hopper, the very talented, Catherine Nowak and see what she has made for you to see!
