So of course you can’t see the flip fold part until you watch the video tutorial below. So stay tuned!!! I got this amazing idea from fellow stamper, Julie Davison! She is amazing! Let’s get started!

First, I cut 2 card fronts (4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″) and one card base (3-3/4″ x 11″). I did my card fronts in Watermelon Wonder and Mint Macaron and the card base in Whisper White. Next, I scored the card base at 1″ & 6″. I added adhesive to the bottom rectangle (3-3/4″ x 5″) and placed it in the center of the Mint Macaron card base. Then I folded the rectangle above that down and the little 1″ flap fold back/up. I added adhesive to this flap and placed the Watermelon Wonder card base over the top, lining up both card bases. You want to make sure you line up the card bases rather that place the on the Watermelon Wonder with a border so that it lays flat. Now your card base is complete and it’s time to decorate!

For the front of the card, I added a piece of Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper (3″ x 4/1/4″) to the bottom. I tied some Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon around the card to cover up the seam of the 2 types of paper! For the greeting, I die cut an oval using the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I just love how fabulous these are! The greeting was stamped in Night of Navy Ink and the flowers in Watermelon Wonder Ink. I used the Love & Affection Stamp Set. The greeting was added to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Now for the inside panel, I added another piece of the Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper (3-1/4″ x 4-3/4″). The copper accents really give a fabulous look to the card. I die cut another Stitched Shapes Oval and stamped the greeting from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set. You could also use another greeting from the Love & Affection Stamp Set as well. Using that stamp set, I stamped a few flowers on the bottom panel and left the rest open to write in. Another option would be to stamp the middle and bottom panel and leave a lot of space for writing! It’s the perfect Mother’s Day card!

  1. I love your flip-fold card. My favorite retiring DSP is Affectionately Yours (which happens to be the card base you used). In fact, my all-time favorite cardstock color is Watermelon Wonder. So sorry to see it retiring, also. Thank you for the measurements to make this card. I’m going to try it.

    • Thank you! I’m glad you loved it! I’m super sad to see Mint Macaron go. I really fell in love with that color! Have fun trying out this card and reach out if you get stuck or have questions!!! ~Laura
