I’m really excited to show you today’s card.  I wanted to make a special card for my Mum’s birthday and I’m really pleased how it turned out.   It is my favourite card I’ve made in a long time – and I finally got to play with my Circle Thinlits die which was an added bonus!

Sweet Sorbet Circle Thinlits 'flip' card

(I bought Mum the Circle Thinlits die as her birthday present so wanted to make the card with my die so she’d see an example of her present in action!)

The card base is die cut from Pistachio Pudding and I’ve used the Sweet Sorbet DSP you can get for free from Stampin’ Up! during Sale-A-Bration.   I followed the instructions on Sara’s Crafting & Stamping Studio blog to die cut the DSP layers – thanks Sara!

I cut 2 Whisper White circles from the Circles #2 originals die (largest circle) to stick on the circle ‘flip’ part.   I sponged around the edge in Crisp Cantaloupe to bring out the colours in the DSP.

The flower on the front of the card was stamped in Crisp Cantaloupe from the Mixed Bunch stamp set , and punched out with the Blossom Punch.   I used Pistachio Pudding to stamp the flower centre (also from the Mixed Blossom set) and punched it out with the 1 inch circle punch.  I stuck the layers onto the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a pearl for added effect.

I really loved how this card turned out.   I think I see a few more flip cards in my future!

Thanks for reading – and happy birthday Mum!
