T.N.T. Thursday

Welcome to T.N.T. Thursday! 

It seems so good tho be able to put up my tutorial this week. Thanks to those of you who expressed concern for me last week.

This weeks tutorial is a Swing and Flip Fold card inspired by a card in the magazine, Fabulous Folds for Card Making (2010).

Let's Get Started

1. Cut your piece of card stock for the base, 4 1/4" x 8 1/4".

2. Score in landscape position at 2-3/4" for a side fold card.

3 For the Flip cut: 3-1/8" x 4-3/4"
Score in landscape position at approximately a 1/2"
for flap to glue on back of card making sure this
piece lines up with the bottom of the card

4. Cut and layer your pieces for both flaps
 Left - 2 1/2"x 3 1/2" Floral layer 2 1/4"x 3 1/2"
Right - 2 3/4" x 4" Floral layer 2 1/2" x 3 3/4"

5. Stamp and punch your images

*I used the Quint-Essential Flower stamp with the
 scallop punches and the Boho Bloosoms punch.

6. Layer these pieces using Stampin' Dimensionals, except the last solid floral piece. 
Adhere and center the unit to the layered piece. Attach this to the flap leaving an even border all around and leaving enough to overlap the flap slightly. (see finished card)
 Add a pearl to the center of the flower.

7. Stamp and layer your sentiment and adhere to the right flap.

8. I choose to finish the inside with some DSP. I haven't decided what 
type of card this is going to be, so I left the inside blank for now.

I really enjoyed making this card and think anyone who receives this will enjoy it also.

Thanks for stopping by and have a CRAFTY week!
