Smile Flip Card …

Hello my Stampin’ Friends,

Hope you are having a nice weekend.  I have been working in my Stampin’ room, cleaning, purging, tossing … you know how things build up.  I came upon a packet of pre-cut cards, so I decided to use what was already cut to make my card share today.


I began with a circle flip card that was cut out of Gumball Green.  It must have been left over from when I was experimenting with the “extending” of the card.  This is where you place the end of the cardstock over the end of the circle framelit so it does not cut it off.


I like to use Designer Series Paper with the flip cards because it just adds a nice splash of color.  I chose the “Watercolor Wonder” because it has Gumball Green in it’s color pallet.  Next I wanted a contrast color in the circle flip area, tried “Smokey Slate, but ended up punching the 2-1/2” circle from the Whisper White because it just looked better.


I wanted to have some added dimension to the card so I embossed the front with the “Needlepoint Border” folder and the white circle with the “Wildflower Meadow” folder.  I knew I was going to add butterflies and wanted it to look as if they were sitting on the flowers.

To create the butterflies I used “Island Indigo for the “Elegant Butterfly” which is the larger of the two, and then punched out the inner (smaller) butterfly “Bitty Butterfly” out of the gumball green area of the “Watercolor Wonder” designer paper.  I then punched another Bitty Butterfly out of the indigo on the Watercolor Wonder paper.


I used the row of pearls for the body of the large butterfly and the smallest pearls to create the body of the smaller butterfly.

I embellished the card by placing the smallest pearls onto the scallop of the embossing.  I then added a fine strip of the island indigo to complete the card.  This brings the indigo color all throughout the card.

My greeting “smile” comes from the stamp set “Fabulous Phrases” … you can find that on page 70 of the idea book and catalog.  It’s a fabulous stamp set!  You can use it in small areas like I did here, or you can combine the words to make up a phrase!


Hope you enjoyed the card share.  I think I will challenge myself to complete all the cards I have pre-cut … and if I can’t do them all, maybe I’ll sell them!  Like I said, it’s time to purge.  I’m getting prepared for a huge retired sale this summer.  Don’t worry … I will send out an invitation when the time comes.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog.

Enjoy the day ~
