    Hello everyone,
    I would like to share my latest card with you, using the January kit.
    One of our members asked me to do a turorial on the card I showed you earlier,
    so I thought, why not make another one? And to be honest, I like this one even better.
    I hope you do too!

    card_zpshtezbrye.jpg

    This card opens like a normal card, but it also has a flip up element. The front panel can be lift up and undeeath there's a pocket with a tag. Of course you can add whatever into that pocket, but for this tutorial I chose to do a little tag.

    The lightning in the photo's are a bit unregular, cause I shoot pictures at night as well as during the day so, I apologize for that. Grab yourself a cup of coffee, cause this tutorial is photo heavy!!! Okay let's get to it!

    0m_zps4vnejde3.jpg
    I started out with cutting a base card at 4.1/16 x 6.1/16 My fold is on the left.

    1m_zpspytiq7qd.jpg
    My fisrt layer was cut at 4.3/4 x 6.1/8 slightly bigger than my base card.

    2m_zpsx0zklfvx.jpg
    I distressed and inked the edges, and then glued it to my base card.

    3m_zpsfkarbaph.jpg
    Then I cut this next piece of PP down to 4.3/8 x 3

    4m_zpsif8atur4.jpg
    I distressed and inked all the edges and glued the paper like a pocket at the bottom of my card. I used a circle punch, to punch out a half circle, which makes it easier to slide a tag in and out.

    5m_zpsagmkkxxt.jpg
    Next I cut this piece of PP at 4.3/8 x 5.3/8 This is going to be my top-background. (I hope this makes sense)

    6m_zpsyq6afkth.jpg
    I flipped it over and made a scoreline at 3/8 of an inch at the top. **** I decieded later on that it needed to be 5/8 from the top***

    7m_zpstwznerhk.jpg
    Then I took a pencil, placed it just above (or below, it depends how you look at it) the scoreline and started rolling the paper around the pencil. Not all the way down, just a little, till you get a nice round fold. It will give you lots of dimension.

    8m_zpsa4og1imr.jpg
    The red-marked strip will be glued to the card later on.

    9mo_zpsbylnwkgm.jpg
    I distressed and inked the edges and at the top, I cut the glue-strip in and angle on both sides.

    10m_zpsgfnepjxk.jpg
    Then I took 3 pearls,

    11m_zpswe7s5ysk.jpg
    and glued them to the bottom like this. The white dots of glue is where they are going to be placed. I used Beacon Gem-Tac for glueing the pearls.

    12m_zps0eychjrq.jpg
    Then I took this die-cut cardboard that I have, (but you can use lace for this part too, or cut a piece of cardboard scallops-wise) and cut off a little piece. Wide enough to fit my card.

    13m_zpsisyiux94.jpg
    I glued it right under the pearls.

    14m_zpsm9tlncvg.jpg
    Flipped it over, cut off the excess and inked the edges.

    15m_zps9dptnhps.jpg
    I cut a piece of the lace that came in the kit, and glued it at the top of my card like this.

    16m_zpsizqrwvfd.jpg
    As I said earlier I made a new scoreline at 5/8 from the top (for better hold) and glued that part, just a tiny bit, overlapping the lace.

    17mo_zpsb8i0tokg.jpg
    This is how it looks now. The pearls that are glued to the backside of the top layer, holds it perfectly balanced.

    18m_zpsgurjxv5t.jpg
    I fussy cut this bird and inked the edges with Gathered Twigs distress ink.

    19m_zpsrwofqfs3.jpg
    From the box my kit came in, I cut 2 thin strips. Then I split the strips to create some twigs.

    20m_zpsoeibwncm.jpg
    And glued them like this.

    21m_zpsjfoppotc.jpg
    I used foam adhesive to the back of the bird, added some extra glue, just to make sure

    22m_zpsdqtjpfmc.jpg
    And glued him in place.

    23m_zpsvb7hcgjo.jpg
    I fussy cut some flowers and inked the edges. I also used one from the flower package that came in the Main Kit.

    24m_zpstepjg71i.jpg
    I tore a few pieces of netting

    25m_zpstqra6xsg.jpg
    And glued them in different spots on my card, using Beacon's Fabri-Tac.
    26m_zps1cveav2f.jpg

    27m_zpsgldj43ax.jpg
    I foam-dotted my flowers and glued them in place.

    28m_zpselk70ex0.jpg
    For stamping my sentiment on the front, I need something to, lay under my dimensional front layer. So, I used the lid of a distress inkpad. It was perfect to give me a stable base, for my stamping.

    29m_zpslddiaqhg.jpg
    I used Archival ink, in Jet Black, to stamp my sentiment.

    30m_zpst6nihssf.jpg
    As you look very closely, just above the word Thinking, you can see the white embossing powder…..I wanted to, somewhat, frame my sentiment and I used the stamps that came in the Main Kit.

    31m_zpscwjvsqrl.jpg
    The frame didn't came out perfectly straight, but I was okay with it.

    32m_zpsi381ezni.jpg
    I found that my bird was a little to plain so I added some Rock Candy Distress Stickles to his belly.

    33m_zpsbwnssqbv.jpg
    And also to my leaves.

    34m_zpsxn2lsjhq.jpg
    Using the Cinnamon Stickles that came in the Main Kit, I stickled up the twigs that I cut earlier.

    35m_zps90gj1jkt.jpg
    I placed some liquid pearls at the left top of my card

    36m_zpsdmeugqhn.jpg
    And in a different color, some at the bottom of my card. Set it aside to dry.

    37m_zpskbeuparm.jpg
    For the tag that is going inside the pocket, I cut a piece of PP at 2.3/4 x 4.3/8 I rounded the coers and made 2 marks at the top, where I want my holes to be.

    38mo_zps4kmleeaz.jpg
    I distressed and inked the edges of my tag, made the holes using a crop-a-dile, and using the cord and a Prima velvety dangling, which both came in the Main Kit, I dressed up my tag.

    39m_zpsnogj9vlv.jpg
    I placed the tag in the pocket like so

    card_zpshtezbrye.jpg
    and called my card done!
    Here are some close up's:

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."
