A Freebie! 50% Off Sale & a Quick Tip Video!

How’s that for a headline? It is true, I am having a 50% off sale now through Saturday at Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff. I have some cool new kits to check out as well as a free die cutting file so you can make this swing card! On this card I also used the Pretty Posies Digital Stamp Set on sale for $2!

If you want to see this interactive card in action then check out the video, there are some tips there too including how to use a regular paper punch to make seamless borders. I own very few punches but I still make them earn their keep!

Here is what the card looks like closed:

And all the way flat:

It is such a simple design but it holds a fun surprise for the recipient! The Free SVG kit also contains a printable file, I shared that back on this post along with a video on how to make it by hand with a paper cutter.

That’s all for today! Remember to visit Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff to snag your freebie and to save 50% on everything else! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

Here’s one swingin’ card!

Well, today I made my first swing (AKA flip-flop) card. It was a challenge at Oriental Stamp Art and I like to try something new now and then. Here is what the card looks like when it is folded, it would come out of a standard A4 envelope like this:

And here it is open, the lovely ATC frame is from this set by About Art Accents, I love the set it is from, there are 9 ATC frames and I use them a lot for scrapbooking, don’t forget to use my coupon code: Lindsay10% when you order to save 10% off your total price!

But wait! There’s more, the center panel flips around to reveal this, again, beautiful stamps from About Art Accents:

 

Here is a video to show how I made it:

Here is the template I promised in the video:

 

Here are the supplies I used but feel free to use a ruler and a craft knife if you don’t have a paper trimmer like the one I used, both ways will work. I want to experiment with making shaped windows. You can alter the template bu making the inner flipper a different size (just change the margins where you cut) or you can even off set the window, experiment! If you do try it leave me a link in the comment section so I can check it out too!

Have a great weekend ant til next time happy crafting!
