Flippin' Friday: Creative Elements Double Flip

Happy Friday! I'm here today to share a different kind of flip card...a double flip! The double flip is new to me...but I guess maybe I might be living under a rock, because another creative stamper shared this back around Christmas time. Anyways...when I saw it the other day on Pinterest, I knew I had to try one!

Isn't this a fun alternative? I love seeing new ways to use my makes them that much more versatile!

To create the double flip,  first, you must start with a piece of card stock that measures 4 7/8 x 7-1/2" and run it through the Big Shot stopping just after it cuts through the label portion. Back it out of the machine, and then flip the card stock to do the opposite end. Clear as mud? Here is a link to a great video that shows you exactly what I'm trying to say.

Then just decorate it as you like...I used my favorite new background stamp...Hardwood to stamp the Coastal Cabana base. The Hardwood background is available in the Occasions catalog. I hope to see more great background stamps in the new catalog out in June.
The Creative Elements set was used for the rest of the stamping here. I love using the border stamp to decorate the edges of cards and scrapbook pages. I think this is a really versatile set. The pretty swirl was stamped onto each of the Whisper White label pieces in Pool Party ink. The butterfly was then stamped right on top of it using Strawberry Slush ink. I stamped the butterfly again onto scrap, this time inked in Calypso Coral to coordinate with the strips along the edges. I punched out the center of the butterfly using the Bitty Butterfly Punch.

The back side of each of the label flips are perfect to stamp a greeting on one and write a message on the other.

Have a GREAT weekend!

Wow! What a cool idea to make the label Thinlits card a double labeled one. I've got to try this technique. A fun and quick card that looks like it took hours to make! Plus, a great opportunity to use additional Thinlits dies in the set on one card. Thank you for sharing.
