World Card Making Day

World card making day was yesterday (3rd October), and Inkurable Stampers blog are running a challenge to make a card without a traditional opening (and at least one stamp of course!). Sarah made a gorgeous Tri-fold shutter card, which has maybe inspired my Christmas cards for this year.

However, for the challenge I made a swing (flip-flop) card from this tuturial at Splitcoast Stampers. The centre part has two sides - one side is visible when the card is shut, and when you open the card it flops to the other side which is where your message goes - a very clever idea.

I have used Stampin Up 'Polka Dots and Paisley' stamps on mine.
