I've been dying to try out this fancy fold that I first saw on Dawn Olchefske's blog. It's called a Corner Flip card and it's very easy to do. I also just got the new Ronald McDonald Charity Stamp Set called Sprinkles of Life. It's Stampin' Up!'s fundraiser for Ronald McDonald Charities. For every one of these stamp sets sold, Stampin' Up! donates $3 to Ronald McDonald House Charities, a very worthwhile cause. This one is a photopolymer set with 22 stamps all together and very versatile just like Sheltering Tree! You get a great stamp set and you get to donate to a great cause in one fell swoop! I used a color swatch from Pals Paper Arts Challenge #254 for this one.
Since Strawberry Slush is now retired, I opted to use Watermelon Wonder, which gives a nice, cheery Ice Cream or Bakery Shop look to this design.
I made the card for someone who is a friend and also an awesome customer. It's so much fun to share the love of papercrafting with a friend!
- The card is made using a standard card base, Watermelon Wonder cardstock cut in half at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4". Before I did the cutting for the special Corner Flip, I added a piece of Watermelon Wonder Striped Envelope paper to the front. Using my Stampin' Trimmer, I aligned the left edge (with the paper in landscape and the envelope paper on the left half) at 3" on the trimmer. I set the blade at 2 1/2", using the ruler on the blade guide, and cut from 2 1/2" to 4 7/8". Then I turned the paper clockwise 90 degrees and aligned the left edge with the 3" mark. I set my blade at 3", using the ruler on the blade guide again, and cut up to 5/8". After folding the card base on the score line, I pushed the bottom of the cut square away from me and pulled the top toward me and sharpened the creases when it is square. I then had the corner flip fold I could decorate.
- I added pieces of Soft Suede to the inside of the card and to the front of the flip fold as you see above. I cut pieces of Whisper White to fit just inside both areas.
- I stamped the images from Sprinkles of Life on to the smaller Whisper White square in Watermelon Wonder, Soft Suede and So Saffron inks and adhered it to the Soft Suede square and onto the Corner Flip.
- The banners were created using the Triple Banner Punch from strips of So Saffron and Whisper White, and cut to fit the punch in 2 different widths. The sentiment, stamped in Watermelon Wander ink, is from Remembering Your Birthday and it is a perfect font to use with the cupcake image. One of the new In Colour Blossom Accents adds a finishing touch to the sentiment area! I used the Cupcake Builder Punch to create the cherry on top of the cupcake.
