Oldie but Goodie

Hi Crafty Friends,

Apparently today, 12th August is Vinyl Record Day. If you are an oldie like me, I am sure you remember these which btw are making a big comeback these days. Vinyl records have become very popular again.

Recently my friend Karen Aicken was very excited that she had figured out how to convert Karen Burniston's Triple Flip die set to create a single flip. This means it is perfect for all those larger stamps and die we own. You can see Karen's card here.

As you can probably figure, I loved the idea and had to try it out myself. Rather than inserting the three tables into the Triple Flip panel, you just need to inside the end tab and then sandwich a large rectangle to the tab. I used a rectangle from the Crosshatch - Rectangles die set. In Karen Burniston's assembly video she recommends foam tape at the top and bottom of the large flip panel which I find helps the mechanism flip easily. 

Karen Aicken also suggested adding a 1/2 inch piece of foam tape just above and below the right hand side of the flip tab, this helps the tab keep straight rather than wanting to slip down. This is only for when you are adding a single flip rather than the triple where the other two tabs going into the main panel deals with this issue.

Here is a quick video to see my card in action. 

Over the last 6 months or so I seem to have accumulated a number of vinyl record themed stamps and dies so seeing it is Vinyl Record Day today, I decided to pull some of those out to create this card.

On the front of my card I used MFT Stamps Turntable die set along with the For the Record stamp set for the sentiment. 

When you pull the tab on the right hand side, the rectangle panel flips open to reveal music themed sentiments and some smaller records (singles or EP's).

The smaller die cut records & music notes are from Sugar Pea Designs Greatest Hits die set and the sentiments are from Honey Bee Stamps For the Record stamp set.

For the inside of my card I added two more rectangles from the Crosshatch - Rectangles die set.

I added another sentiment from the Honey Bee Stamps stamp set and the larger record is again from Sugar Pea Designs Greatest Hits stamp and coordinating die set.

This is fabulous - I am now using recycled cardboard - two layers for the top and bottom of my card in place of foam tape - I also add an extra strip of cardstock behind the pull tab - it makes a difference in my cards - sharing a tip I discovered by just trying it. TFS I love the Triple Flip!
