Double Circle Flip Slim Line Card
Using the dies from the Circle Flip Die set from Creek Bank Creations on a “slim line” card base is yet another way to use this versatile die set. You could make a single flip panel or two as I have done here. (I was bound and determined to “get my money’s worth” with this die set – lol!!) The die set is designed to make A2 size cards, but HERE is the video (starting at 3:17) showing how to create the slim line card.
The birthday images are from the “Sketch a Party” set from Stampin’ Up (retired) and were paper pieced with scraps from the core’dinations Light Green Crosshatch (#GX-2300-24) patterned paper also used for the decorative panel on the card front. All the circles were cut with dies from the Circle Flip Die set.
Again, this die set is meant for an A2 size card, and the included decorative panel die is too small for the longer card base. To fix this, I die cut two of the decorative panels, trimmed them to size (with my paper trimmer), and then used the greeting strip to cover the seam in the center. (A much easier way to add decorative paper is shown in the video; I had watched the video some time before creating my card and forgot how she did it – lol!!)
The sentiment stamp on the inside is the “Happy Birthday Round” stamp (#S1740) from Creek Bank Creations. I added a second, plain circle panel on which to include a handwritten message and/or signature.
My finished card measures 4″ x 9 1/4″ and fits in a regular business envelope, but if you wanted to make a custom envelope with the We R Memory Keepers envelope punch board, start with a 10 5/8″ square and line up at 7 1/8″ for first punch/score line.
Thanks for checking out my card project!
