Thank You! Crazy 4 Challenges!



Happy Saturday!   It is time for another Crazy 4 Challenge with the Crazies!   Check out the C4C blog for more challenge details with the crazies at Crazy 4 Challenges(C4C191).  

This week's challenge is all about 
the Swing or Flip Flop Fold!
(Check out Beate's Tutorial at SCS)


For my card I am using Verve's  Wings of LoveNew Mercies, Sweet Treats, and Words Cannot Express stamp sets.  I am also using Verve's Cut Above   Classy Label, Wavy Hearts, Embossed Oval, and Scalloped Trim Trio die sets.

For my card I am using some MME Oxford Lane designer papers.  For the closed panel focal point,  I  die cut the Classy Label frame and stamped with coordinating image from Sweet Treats in Memento Nautical Blue ink.  I then die cut the embossed oval and stamped the Thank You from the Sweet Treats set.  I also stamped off twice and stamped the heart sprig from same set above and below oval sentiment. 

For the inside of the flip flop card opened flat, I die cut and stamped the two wavy hearts using New Mercies and Wings of Love in same ink.  These hearts had to be placed just so since the card must fold and the other side becomes the focal point when closed.  I added a die cut heart trim.     

Embellishing this type of fold is tricky as the back becomes the flattened or opened focal point when it flips around.  I added a few silver pearls.  I did manage a Verve Spring Fling Ribbon Collection bow in Sunshine to coordinate with the papers. 

Check out what the rest of the team did with this week's challenge!

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
