Free As A Bird Flip Up Fun Fold Card

This is my featured stamp set for July. It is the Free As A Bird Bundle from Stampin' Up! This fun fold is a flip up fun fold. Details can be found here: #thestampcamp #stampinup #freeasabird #birdballad

This is the last bonus card for my featured stamp set “Free As A Bird Bundle” for this month.  The bundle includes the stamp set and the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  This is a different type of fun fold card as it has a flip up front.

Join me Tonight at 8:00PM EST on my Facebook page to see a video on how this is made.  I’m going on a mini vacation with Nikki, Zach and Sophia before baby Giselle arrives. 🙂

If you have placed an Online Order with me this month make sure to check the Free As A Bird Album in my photo gallery for the PDF file.  This month there has been lots of different cards using the featured stamp set.

The gorgeous printed paper I used on the card is from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  All the prints in this pack are just gorgeous!

I stamped the large bird from the stamp set and colored it in with the Blends.  I then hand cut him out along with the leaves and flowers.

What are Stampin’ Blends?  

Stampin’ Blends are high quality, dual-tip markers in Stampin’ Up! exclusive colors.  Experiment by blending light and dark shades of the same color or by blending colors with similar hues.  Each individual marker includes both a thin tip and a brush end.  Combo packs include a dar shade and a light shade.

I always use the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink pad to ink my outline images and stamp.  This ink pad is best to use with the Blends so your image does not bleed.
