Flip Card ~ VIDEO TUTORIAL {Bo Bunny 'Star-Crossed'}

Flip card video tutorial by Gabrielle Pollacco using Bo Bunny 'Star-Crossed' collection papers and embellishments

Hi all!  So lately I've been finding myself obsessed with unique folded cards, and this one really caught my attention.  I love a card that can play tricks, and this one is so much fun!  You just have to make a couple of easy cuts into a piece of  5 1/2" x 6 1/4" paper....add a few score marks, and you get this fun card that flips and shows 2 sides as you open it!  Check out my video below to watch me put this one together!  (there is also a template with the measurements I used below) :) ....



Fun, isn't it!!  Here are a few close-ups and views of the card....

This is the card cover when it is closed. I used the adorable Bo Bunny 'Star-Crossed' collection to make up this card.  All I needed was the 6x6 paper pad and a packet of their Double Dot Jewels for the bloom centers (inside the card).

This is the inside view of the card when it is opened and the center piece has done it's flip (you have to see the video to see how the flip works...it's so cool! :)

Here is a close-up of the centerpiece of the card (the front view).  I cut out some chipboard hearts and traced them on a piece of the patterned paper from the 6x6 paper pad.  I added a coat of Diamond Stickles to give the hearts some sheer shimmer.  I also cut out a couple of the feather designs from one of the patterned papers in the Star-Crossed pad to make my corner design.

This is a close-up of the card center piece when the card is open. Oddly enough, every time I pulled out an element to add to my card, it fit perfectly.  The frame is from the Noteworthy pack that coordinates with the Star-Crossed collection, it's dimensions were perfect for the center panel!

And here (above) is a template I drew out that has all the dimensions you'll need to make your own flip card!  (in the video I accidentally put a score line down the middle, but I didn't fold it and once I had on my center panels it kept the design true).

Hope you enjoyed my tutorial and hope you'll give this card a try! I made this one for my youngest daughter, she's been making such great progress in school and other areas in her life, I wanted to make a special card just for her....and she loved it! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today and for all the lovely comments and feedback, they make my day! xo xo

Gabrielle is a shame that in my country, Argentina, and especially in my province Catamarca ... most of the products you use in your videos ... fail. But'll quickly see how you combine all these elements. Obviously for your projects must be replaced by other products which if found on the market. Congratulations !!. As not English, I hope you have mistyped the translator what I mean. regards

I love this fold card! I do have one question for you....did you decorate the backside? I see you cut pieces to fit the sides for the front, did you do this for the backside too???

Gabrielle Pollacco said...

No, when the card is open and layed flat you see what is in the photo I posted above that says "inside view"...if you flip the whole thing over it still is pretty because the hearts design from the front of the card end up on the back...and the Bo Bunny cardstock has a cute dot pattern, so nothing else is really needed. ;)
