A Flip Fold Hello!


Today I'm showcasing a card I did for my Sweet Stampede monthly team swap. The inspiration for this card came from fellow demonstrator Rachel Tessman. It is a Flip Fold card and it's so easy to create.

The outer flap unfolds to display a sweet image and special sentiment.


Heres a closer look....



The card opens up to a thoughtful banner sentiment
