Vintage Flip-Its

Good morning to you all! Jennie here sharing my first project of the month.  

I have had a Sissix Card Flip-It die for the last year and (hang head in shame) have not used it yet. So here goes with my first attempt using up some vintage scraps in my box as well (so doubly feel good!)

I cut the card first in some kraft cardstock to give it a bit of form and then used the die again using the vintage paper but this time cutting out the middle "flip-it" section. This got stuck to the kraft card and the edges blended with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.

I cut the middle section again in cream cardstock this time and added some texture paste and light stamping and blended ink around the edges. I also punched some leaves, a sentiment and made a small flower. I have used only Gathered Twigs Distress Ink for all of this.

The flower was made using the new Tim Holtz flower punches: two large tattered florals and one small spiky flower is enough to make the single flower. These were spritzed with water and scrunched up and when dry layered over the top of each other.

The flip-it part of the card was then stuck on the front and decorated with the embellishments.

And I made a similar piece to go on the back.

Well I really enjoyed using this die and can't believe it has sat on the shelf for so long - poor thing just waiting to have its moment of glory!

Thank you for joining me today and I hope it might inspire you to get your "flip-it" dies out for a treat!
