Wonderful World, Artistically Inked, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

I have always liked these corner flip cards. They are easy to make and give a fun look too.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Rich Razzleberry card stock. This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left. 

To make the flip part you just need to get your paper cutter out and set your card stock on it with the long side on the cutter, line up the left edge at 3".  Line your cutting blade up at 2-1/5" and cut down to 4-7/8".  Then turn it clockwise so the shorter edge is on the top and line the left edge up at 3". Line your cutting blade at 3" and cut up to 5/8".  I like to score my piece before I fold the corner over. I just take my rule rand line up across the corners and score on the two small areas. You don't need to do this, I just find I get a better fold when I that.  You can just push that bottom part of the half-square you cut inward and upward, close the card and then press the flipped part down.

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the "Wonderful World" 12" x 12" package. I love it that they named the DSP the same as the stamp set so I can easily see which set it goes to. Not that I can't use it for a different set but I can quickly find it when looking for it while using this set.  Anyway, I cut the DSP at 4" x 5-1/4".  I marked the top left at 5/8" and the right side at 3-1/2".  Then I used my cutter and cut off that corner so the piece would fit nicely under that flap. I taped the DSP in place on the front of the card. I didn't take note that the angled edge would be showing on the other side before taping. I was planning on adding on adding a 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" piece to cover that opening anyway, so I was just careful when I pressed the DSP in place, I opened my card to do that so it wouldn't stick to the inside of my card and tape my card shut! I added thee 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" piece to the inside and I was ready to decorate the front.

I cut a 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" piece of DSP for the square. It's actually the backside of the floral DSP I had just taped down for the front.

The flower is from the "Wonderful World" set and was stamped using Garden Green and Melon Mambo ink on the flower. I set up a piece of Basic White card stock in my Stamperatus, I masked off the stem and stamped the flower and then I masked the flower and stamped the stem. I prefer to do it this way instead of using markers. One reason is I find this kind of stamping ruins my markers and I get a better coverage with an ink pad. Plus I can ink again if I need to.  But that's a personal preference. Once the flower was inked, I die cut it using the 2-1/8" circle die from the "Layering Circles" die set. I set the flower in place using Dimensionals.

The words are from the "Artistically Inked" set and were stamped using black Memento ink. I cut them out using the die from the "Rectangle Stitched" framelits die set. I set them in place using Dimensionals.

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White was added to the inside and before I send this card off, I am going to use a couple of glue dots to hold the flap down. I like it to be nice and flat. In the photo it's not stuck down and it looks fine, I just like to have mine lay flatter.

And that's it. It's a very fun and easy card to make once you get the hang of how it works. If you are leery of trying it, use a half-sheet of scrap copier paper first and you will feel confident enough to move onto card stock!

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see today's birthday card,
