Recently, a friend from work had found a new job and my other co-workers asked me to make a card that we could present to her on her last day. I wanted it to be something special that she could keep as a remembrance of us, and I remembered an article I had read in the September 2012 Scrap & Stamp Arts magazine by Catherine Allan called “Spellbound With Spellbinders Dies & Inky Goodness.” In this article, Cathy Allan gives step by step instructions for making a triple-flip card.
I used Spellbinders Grand Labels Eleven to create the top two layers. The stamped images on the front are from the Sheena Douglass stamp set “Silhouette Grasses” and the large butterfly die cuts were created with the Les Papillions die from Spellbinders. Other Spellbinders dies I used include Lattice Rectangles, Classic Circles Small, and Classic Scalloped Large. The tiny butterflies you see on the various pages were made with the Memory Box die “Butterfly Delights.” I used Memento Bahama Blue, Memento Danube Blue, and the Ranger Distressed Inks Picked Raspberry, Broken China, and Tumbled Glass to color the backgrounds on the top two layers.
I used a dot patterned paper and a Heartfelt Creations Burst of Splendor patterned paper for the backgrounds on the other pages. One of the Sizzix Architectural Accent dies was used to create the corner pieces on the third page and the stamp for the focal image is from Hero Arts. Sizzix dies were also used to create the tag and sign–the tag and tag pocket were cut from Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch patterned papers.
