this was a lot of fun! greeting is on the inside, but should've done it as a tag at the heel on the front. Foam core on front and back of card and stamped images on top of foam core, to make it feel more like a real flip flop.. for my neice's 16th birthday...Greeting inside will read: "We hope your 16th Birthday is like 'toe'-tally cool!" I know, I'm a dork... :) TFL!

What a neat card for a teenager! Love the use of the Paint Prints and Canvass sets on your flip flop. I never would have thought of using the foam core to make it more realistic, how creative! Loved it!!

Way too cool - love it. I'm assuming you made just one flip flop? If not, how did you attach them together? Would appreciate more detailed instructions - my youngest turns 16 in July.
Thanks for the interest, here are some more detailed instructions:
It's a total of 5 layers. The card folds on the left side of the flip flop. Bottom layer is foam core, then the Magenta layers are actually folded, then another layer of foam core then the top layer of US White that is stamped. Where the foam core and top US White are actually slightly contoured on the left side, the magenta is a straight line, and that is the fold, so the bulkey foam core lays flat, and is not folded... does that make ANY sence?
