'Flap' Happy

It's so nice to receive handmade items. I was actually lucky enough to be a recipient of a handmade card from one of my students. He didn't make it, but his mom had. It was a flap card similar to this one & I just had to make one of my own.

The dimensions for the card base are: 4 1/4" x 9". You then score at 5 1/2". To make the flap, you just cut a rectangle large enough that when folded in half can hold your focal image. You glue the back side of the folded rectangle down and the front flap hangs open. My front fold was a bit heavy for my little flap, so I added a mini glue dot to hold it together and it worked perfectly.

The flower is made with the two flowers from the Vintage Vogue set. They are stamped, cut out and held together with a brad. I flipped up the edges to give it a bit more dimension. What a fun...and easy card to make! Give it a try.

Thanks for stopping by!
