Fun Fold Open Flip Card + Video

Hi!  Hope your last couple of weeks has been as fun as mine!  Louisa was here again for another 4 days - how cool is that?  Two weeks in a row!  The house seems super quiet without her.  

Let's keep the fun going with this fun fold card I'm calling an Open Flip Card.  I love how it works and I've made a video with tips to make it super easy for you to do.

It wasn't easy at first (it took me awhile to figure out how to do it).  I just had an idea and it took me a week of looking and thinking and trying to get it right.   And don't tell me if somebody else has done this - I don't want my "I did it" bubble to burst!

So this is the second "stage" of the card.  The front is opened and flipped back on itself to reveal another image.  Cool, right?  Well, the fun doesn't stop there...

Third "stage":  Open it up again and you can see the full spread.  What do you think?

The stamps are from Stampin' Up called Magical Day.  I got them last year and I just found out they are no longer available.  Might be some on Ebay...

Here's the video, in case you want to make one, too!

These are the copics used for this card.

It was super hot when Louisa was here.  My mom and dad suggested the perfect indoor activity.  Throwing pennies in the fountain at North Park Mall.  Who knew throwing pennies could be so much fun?

Go have some fun yourself and maybe make a Fun Fold Open Flip card while you're at it!
