Road to Happiness Flip Flop Card

Road to Happiness Flip Flop Card 6-9-12

I just love these “flip flop” cards!  With a little trick with the cutting plates on the Big Shot, use any die to flip back and forth.  On one side, the car is empty.  But with this 2-step stamp set, you can pack your car with gifts, balloons, or flowers, head off for surfing at the beach, or send a bride and groom off for their honeymoon.

Lolly Embellishment - Gently Falling

Lolly Embellishment – Gently Falling 9-10-11

I’m not sure what you call the accordion folded embellishments…. lolly, medallion, rosette?  There may be more names for them, but I called them addicting!  Stampin’ Up! sells a die for these now, The Designer Rosette Bigz XL die, $42.95  #125594.  I don’t have the die, so I make them fairly easily with the Simply Scored Tool.  A tip:Score a full sheet of Designer Series Paper then slice it into strips 1″ wide or more.  I used the Simply Scored tool to add a border to the card base too.  I combined the lolly on this card with a large button.  I sponged a little Shimmer Paint on the inked stamp to add some sparkle.
