C4C492 Holiday Spirits Triple Flip Card

Hello my crafty friends

It's Saturday and that means a new challenge at the Crazy4Challenges Blog. This month our hostess is Karen Ostergard! Donna K is joining us as our Guest Designer and you can find Donna's blog HERE.   This is Karen's challenge for the week:

Christmas in July. Create a Christmas / holiday themed card.

Note, this is my first post today. If you are looking for my Design Team Card for Lynda Kanase, scroll down as it will be available a little later this morning.

I used several new items from Karen Burniston's new release - the Triple Flip and the Happy Hour Charms. I pulled out this patterned paper stack to make my card, and saw this border image on one of the sheets. It was too perfect not to use so then I was off and running.

While it's hard to see in the photos, I die cut each of the cocktail glasses from a peachy foil card stock and I love how they catch the light. The drink portion of the dies were cut from white glitter paper for some holiday sparkle, and the tiny holly and poinsettias were fussy cut from a different paper in the stack.

When you pull on the tab, the three panels flip to the left and reveal the message "Naughty is the new Nice". Ahaha - so fun. I snipped the words from one of the journal cards in the paper stack to make them work with the Triple Flip die set.

Inside I added a matted journal card and a circle with a sticker greeting which is where we will sign our names.

I will also include a short YouTube video so you can see the card in action!

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd  love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C492.

These are SO CUTE! What is the name of the Recollections paper pad?

Glad you liked the card ... I don't seem to be able to reply to your comment, so I'm posting as a comment and I hope you get your answer. The name of the paper pad is "Holiday Bash".

Thanks, Karen! :)

where did you get the saying in the front and inside. I love it! Great girlfriend card!

Carol - the 'REPLY' button has gone missing from my blog comments so I need to respond to you with another comment rather than reply. The sayings were fussy cut from the same paper pad, which was called Holiday Bash (12 x 12") from Michaels. I think I got it there almost two years ago but I know I saw it last year when they brought out their holiday papers. Hope that helps!
