Corner Flip Birthday Card

Corner Flip Birthday Card

I saw this video for a “Corner Flip” card HERE and thought I’d give it a try!  I love the interesting angle created behind the simple stamped panel, and I also love how the inside panel is visible and offsets the stamped panel so nicely.  Here’s another angle of the corner.

The stamps I used for this card are from the “Avant-Garden” stamp set by Stampin’ Up. It was a free set with a $50 purchase (and retired after March 31, 2017).  The inks I used are SU Crisp Cantaloupe and Tip Top Taupe and Gina K Kraft and Fresh Asparagus.  I did generation stamping (stamping off) to get the two shades of peach and did some masking to keep my layers clean.  Card stock used is Gina K Peach Bellini, Kraft, and white.

I made repeating diagonal score lines on my corner before flipping.  I’d like to say I came up with the idea as part of my design plan, but the truth is, I had made a mistake trying to score the corner before flipping it. I either had to keep scoring or get a new piece of card stock and start over.  I kind of like the way my mistake turned out!  (It’s not really even necessary to score before folding; it folds pretty easily without a score line.)

Thanks for checking out my card project!
