I am not sure if I have an absolute favorite stamp set … I love all my stamps hehe! So I decided to go with one of my favorite new Christmas stamp sets I have purchased this year from Papertrey Ink.
I love using my sizzix card dies so this time round I decided to use my Sizzix Circle Flip It die.
For my flip it card today I added an extra flap so that I can add a greeting or whatever. To do this I cut my card at 10 inches long and then scored at 3 inches from the right hand side of the card and folded that in. Then I placed the card so the fold was just inside the cut line of the die.
Here is one last view of my card, this time fully extended.
Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
