Hi There! Welcome to All Things Beautiful!
I am so glad you stopped by for a visit.
Today's post is a Swing or Flip Flop card. You can find the link to the tutorial I used under my tutorial tab or by clicking here. It's been quite a while since I've made this type of fun fold card and there are so many variations. I have linked several tutorials utilizing some of the variations in the tutorial section of my blog.
For today's card I chose to make a kids themed design. I haven't colored with my Copic markers in a while and I just really enjoyed coloring the image on this card. I am not a Copic expert but I do enjoy the results I get form these artist quality, alcohol ink markers. I also included a small embellishment (Card Candy) I created in the lower left hand corner. You can find a tutorial on how to make your own card candy embellishments under my tutorial tab using the link I provided above.
Here is a view of the card as it is being opened, you can see the center image begin to flip. I chose to also stamp the card base, front and back with a simple wood grain background stamp just to give the card some interest and keep the design cohesive.
The back panel of the card when the image flips over is just stamped with a simple sentiment with plenty of room for a personalized handwritten note.
