Technique Tuesday – Flip Flap Fun!!!

Happy Tuesday!!! I have a fabulous technique to share with you today! This is one that I have shared before but it is always fun to take an old technique and do it all over again!! You can check out the other sample here!

Flip Flap Fold, Birthday Candle,

This is the fun Flip Flap Fold (at least that is what I like to call it)! 🙂 I love the fun fold and look to this card and it is so fun to open a card a little differently! The other bonus is that it still fits in a regular Medium Envelope!

Flip Flap Fold, Birthday Candle,

You can see the directions for this card here so I will get down to the details of this card! I started with a base of Bermuda Bay and layered with Tangelo Twist! The balloons and confetti are from the Birthday Bash Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Mini Catalog. I love those gold foil balloons in the paper! It adds such a flare!

For your decoration part, I used the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch to punch out the Whisper White scrap that I stamped the candles from the Balloon Bash Stamp Set! I used my markers to get the different colors! I layered that onto a piece of 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle in Tangelo Twist.. Be sure to only put adhesive on the bottom half of your layered decoration so you don’t have any sticky showing. I added some Whisper White Cotton Ribbon to the edge! Love it!!!

There is still plenty of room on the inside for you to write on! I always think this style of card is fun for kids but I know I would enjoy this card as well! Although I think I’ll always be a kid at heart! 🙂

Let me know if you try out this card and how you decide to decorate it! Leave me a comment down below!

Happy Stampin’
