Fun Fold Friday #32 Flip Front Poinsettia Petals Card

 Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday Series and this week I have made a Flip Front card using some of the fabulous new products in the Mini Catalogue.  I have used the beautiful poinsettia petals, the Winter Snow embossing folder and some Heartwarming Hugs dsp and the gorgeous red velvet paper, let me show you how I made it.  There is also a video tutorial over on my YouTube channel, just click on the link below.


1 piece of real red card stock 5 7/8" x 4 1/8", 1 piece 8 1/4" x 2 3/4" and a scrap 3/4" x approx 3 1/2"
1 piece of whisper white 5 3/4" x 4", 1 piece 4" x 2 5/8" and a scrap 1/2" x 3 1/4"
1 piece of dsp 4" x 2 5/8"
Scraps of gold foil
Approx 1/4 of a sheet of the red velvet paper
Poinsettia dies
Die cutting machine
Lovely Labels pick a punch
itty Bitty Christmas stamp set
Real red ink
Winter snow embossing folder
Gold glitter enamel dots
Simply Scored
Bone folder
Multipurpose adhesive


Run the largest piece of whisper white through the die cutting/embossing machine in the winter snow embossing folder and then adhere to the piece of real red card stock.

Score the other real red card stock at 4 1/8" on the long side and fold and burnish, then adhere to the card front about 3/4" from the left hand side.

Stamp a sentiment on the whisper white layer for the inside using real red ink and then adhere to the inside of the folded red card.  Add the dsp layer to the front.

The Poinsettia die set also includes pieces that will emboss the petals and leaves to show the views and markings so I have used these inside of the dies to cut out my pieces. I have cut one of each of the three largest poinsettias using the red velvet paper, one each of the two holly leaves with the gold foil and 2 of the berry twigs, also with gold foil.

Layer up the three sets of petals, I have used wet glue in the centre of each one to fix them together.  I have used a small dimensionals on the end of each of the holly leaves to fix them to the back of the flower and then added two large dimensionals to the back of the flower and added the berry twigs to those. Add a gold glittered enamel dot to the centre of the flower.  Than fix to the card front making sure that it stays within the boundaries of the card and leave enough space at the bottom to fit the sentiment.

Punch out one end on the two strips for the sentiment using the pick a punch and then stamp the sentiment in real red ink close to the punched end on the whisper white layer.  Then adjust the length of the strip if you need to and punch the other end of both strips to make the sentiment banner.  Adhere the two layers together and then add a spot of glue to the left hand end only and fix to the card front, underneath the flower, parallel with the bottom of the card as shown in the picture.

I hope that you like this card and will give it a try.
