Hi There! Are you ready to try a new technique with Just Us Girls? This week Pam is our fabulous Hostess & has challenged us to create a "Flap" card. If you need a little guidance on how to make a card using the "Flap" technique, here is the link to an easy to follow tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/flap_card/ I hope you come join the fun with Just Us Girls & our March Featured Designer: Stephanie.
Here is my "Flap" fold card all tied up!
There are several ways to keep your flap card closed ie: a magnet, velcro, button & string, a bow :) I originally intended that my card remained closed using a pair of magnets: 1 on the inside & 1 on the flap. After I stitched all the layers together the magnet would not hold so, I improvised & wrapped a generous piece of ribbon around the card & tied a big bow :) Using various images from the MTME © Fanciful Flourishes set, I randomly stamped the outside of the card as well as the inside, side flaps.
I hope you join along & give this fun technique a try! Thanks For looking - Be Sweet!
For complete details, please visit the Just Us Girls challenge site & be sure to visit ALL the DT girls (found on my side bar) as well as Stephanie! Once you have your flap card photographed, be sure to go to Just Us Girls and post a direct link to your creation on our site. If you upload to on online gallery, please be sure to label your project as JUGS24.
