Birthday Flip Card to Amaze

Impress everyone with this dynamic Birthday flip card for their special day.  It is simple to make but looks like you spent hours making it.  It is the same style as the Fathers Day Flip Card.

What you need:
      • Very heavy cardstock for the base
      • Scraps of cardstock
      • liquid glue
      • Download file
      • washi tape
      • Pen
Paper Selection

The base card needs to be at least 100 lb weight paper. You don’t see much of it.  It is mainly there for support and structure for the Birthday Flip card.  Patterns have no point.  But the overlays and embellishments can be any paper including patterns as long as the pen shows up.

Cutting the Card
This is a pretty easy card to cut.  The birthday embellishments are print then cut images.  If you don’t know how to do that see the video included in Design Space – There is Nothing to be Scared of video series.  The smaller embellishments, especially the balloon strings are sorta thin so be careful taking them off the mat.  
Assembly

First re-crease all the fold lines.  Work the card a couple of times to make sure it flips correctly.

Next glue the birthday cake and ballons on the overlays for the flippers.  Then glue the birthday cake overlay to the flipper on the back side.  Now you can flip the flipper and attach the balloons flipper to the other side.  Finally glue the other overlays to the base card.  I thought that the card needed more so I put a little washi tape on each side.

Your Birthday Flip card is done.  Enjoy!
