Flip Corner Card Instruction

Today I want to share how to make Flip Corner Fold cards. I made few more of them. Love those cards as they are perfect for guys, and we all know it is not that easy to make masculine cards.
How Tos:
Supplies needed:
  • Card base 8.5 x 5.5 scored at 4.25 ( Soft Suede in this example)
  • Stampin Up! trimmer
  • Another color of card stock 2.75 x 2.75 and 4 x 5.25 ( Crumb cake)
  • Card stock to stamp on and for inside of the card 2.5 x 2.5 and 3.75 x 5 (Lost lagoon)
Step 1 

Align left top corner of card base at 3" mark, cut from 2.5" to 4 7/8"

Step 2 
Turn card base, align left top corner at 3" and cut from 5/8" to 3". Two cuts will meet

Step 3 
The cut portion of the base is your card front. Lay it on the table positioned cut piece to your right (and not cut portion to the left). Hold top right cornet and 'flip' it toward card center.

Step 4
Align flipped corner in parallel to scored line and card bottom, crease folds with bone folder. Add glue dot or dimensional under the flip corner to secure in in place. if you plan to stamp background on card front or run it through embossing - do it before adding the glue dot/dimensional.

Step 5
Stamp on 2.5 x 2.5 piece, adhere it to 2.75 square piece and then to the card front. Do the same with 3.75x5 piece, adhere it to 4 x 5.25 and than to the inside.

Possibilities are endless. After you do one or two - it is super easy and quick to put together. Now the hardest part will be - what color and design to choose for your next Flip Corner Card.

Happy Stamping! 

I would love to hear from you what do you think about this type of card fold.
