Surprise Birthday Bouquet

*I have been trying to think of a way to use the triple flip die set in a different way, then I saw Karen Aickens version where she only used one large flipper as opposed to using all three smaller flippers. Also one of my oldest and dearest friends had a birthday coming up and I decided she needed a fancy bouquet of flowers for her birthday, so I decided to combine the two. The effect I was looking for with this card was to have the card look like it is one colour of a bouquet when closed, but have a different colour of bouquet when it is open, and I think I pulled it off

to see a video of this card in motion please check out my Facebook page please feel free to join if you would like to share your own creations.

I used a variety of products when making this card, they are listed throughout the post. To make the Flip mechanism I used Karen Burnistons Triple Flip die set, but like mentioned above I only used one of the flippers. I do recommend watching Karen’s VIDEO on how to create the Triple flip card as it explains how the principle of the mechanism works, and the idea is still the same, just with 1 flipper. Also my previous Triple flip cards (links at end of blog), and both Karen Aickens, and Karen Burnistons video card are all horizontal and my card is vertical.

I used the Flower Pot Pop Up below

The VIDEO explains the following process in more detail.

the flowers are from 2 other Karen Burniston die sets, one of them is the Woven Basket the second one is Flower Pot Pop up the leaves are from these sets as well, the ivy leaves are from my thrift store stash.

To make sure I layered the flowers so the different colours would only be visible when the card is either open or closed, I applied them in the following order…..

Thanks for joining me! I am a paper crafting enthusiast who has a special interest in interactive cards. I get a lot of inspiration from the internet so I thought that I  would throw out my own creations with hope that it inspires someone else.
