Default TLC272 ~Flip Flop Cards~ (05/10/10)

Hello Friends!

I hope you all have a wonderful day! It seems like the majority of the moms in our little court got flowers for Mother's Day as they were all out this afternoon planting. There are only 10 houses on our court and it looks so pretty when you drive in with all the fresh mowed lawns and flowers.

~ Flip Flop Cards ~

This challenge came as a suggestion from Bensarmom (Sue). I know it was done a while back for a VSN challenge, but never for the TLC. There are several youtube videos on how to make the cuts, but I found Beate's tutorial here on SCS to be the best an most thorough. You can find Beate's tutorial HERE.

Keep in mind these things...
  • Measure twice, cut once
  • Be patient
  • Photograph from two angles (best way to see the whole card)

Here is my sample:

~ Life's A Picnic ~

Remember, when you are uploading your card to use KEYWORD TLC272 (no space).

You can find the entire TLC272 gallery HERE.

Go forth and create!

Thanks Holly, sounds like fun! That is is the same advice my sewing teacher gave "Measure twice, cut once"!

Not decorated too much, but this was my first try - different type of card for sure.

Oh - these are such fun and I don't do them often enough.
After housework-lite last week I really have to do a proper job this week, but I hope to get time after that.

Golden Birthday
I'm like MariLynn, hard to get a decent photo because it's 8.30 pm here, and a cloudy, overcast day.

So how cool is this? You all have such amazing ways of pushing enough to get us to develop new skills in crafting, but not so much that we each blow a gasket in frustration! Thanks!

This really was a challenge!!! This was the first time I'd seen one of these types of cards, so I really had to work my brain cells. TFL!

I love different shaped cards so couldn't resist this challenge.
Really wanted to play with the Autumn traditions DSP I just got and have a brother-in-laws birthday in a couple of days, here (Australia) it is Autumn so it seemed like a good place to start.
Very pleased with how this came up and will be doing this type of card again. Thanks for the challenge!
