August 1, 2016 Flipped Corner Tutorial for The House That Stamps Built

GOOD MONDAY MORNING - this week it is my turn to do our weekly tutorial and I have had several people ask me how to do the flipped corner card that I enjoy making.  My card here shows this technique.  This tutorial is HEAVY with  pictures so grab a cup of coffee and enjoy:

Supplies include cardstock, paper trimmer, bone folder, and I choose to use REPEAT IMPRESSIONS stamps 9724G - Happy Frog and 9704F Un-frog-ettable .

As you can see I added a post-it-note 3 x 3 in the upper right corner of the card so you visualize the cut a little more clearly.  Score your base cardstock at 4 1/4 inch.  

Place the 5 1/2 inch  side of your card at the 3 inch mark on your cutter - starting at the 5/8 inch mark cut down to the 3 inch mark on your cutter ruler.  

Turn cardstock and place the scored center fold line at 1 1/2 inches on your cutter, cut from 5/8 from top down to 3 inch line.  your two corner cuts should meet.  


Push the left cut corner down and under as show in the picture above.

Use your bone folder to get a nice crease.

Stamp your image on a 2 1/4 inch square of white cardstock.  

Color your image using color medium of choice - I used colored pencils and OMS to color this frog.  Mount this image on a 2 1/2 inch square and then again on a 2 3/4 inch square.   

Attach to card with glue runner or adhesive of your choice.

Apply a bit of adhesive or a glue dot under the corners where the arrows are.   

Add sentiment or embellishment of your choice to front of card.  

You may finish the inside of the card.  I had a frog brad that was hopping to be included in this card.
 This is going to my chemo patient along with a cute frog magnet that I found shopping a while back.  This is really an easy fold and makes a very nice layout for a card.  Enjoy.
