I had recently purchased the Flip-It Sizzix dies, and was eager to try them out and so I did one for a girl and one for a guy.
I needed a birthday card for our next door neighbor, who has seven motor bikes! Yes, seven! So, I made the base with the square Flip-Its die from silver metallic cardstock. I wanted to give it some texture and almost thought to add the texture on top, but was able to run the sections through an embossing folder which made me very happy!! These bases are so fun ... and the fact that they can be run through the embossing folder, means that the possibilities are endless. Here is my finished card:
and then you flip it and this is what you get:
So then, for the girl one, I was thinking floral, romantic, lace and a little bling? But I didn't have any double-sided cardstock to start with. So I thought I'll try making my own. I used a flowered pattern and a script pattern and glued them together with brushable glue. It worked!
I ran the new cardstock through the Fancy Frame Flip-Its this time, and used the Fancy Frames dies. I used Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter and a little Rose stamp to add to the floral aspect. A little lace and some bling flourishes. Here is the end result:
Here are another couple of angles:
