More Thinlits Cards variations for you today! This is a circle card made using the exclusive Stampin' Up Circles Collection Framelits and the Circle Card Thinlet for the Sizzix Big Shot. You'll recognize from the color scheme that this was a part of my Advanced Papercrafters' Class for October 2013. it's a pretty simple thing to execute, but I took a couple of photos to help you visualize how to make it at home.
Here's a photo of the card opened...
Start by cutting out an ordinary Circle Framelit Card like normal. Then, with the card in the folded, closed position, use a large circle Framelit to die-cut just the flip-fold mechanism part. Discard the rest.
Then you can attach that mechanism to any sort of base. I chose the scalloped, largest circle in the Circles Collection Framelits as my base. I loved the look of piercing in each scallop as well.
This photo shows the backside of the card. Now, for the flip-fold mechanism to move freely, you have to have a circle cut out of the back of your card base. So I used a smaller circle Framelit to center a hole (well, "almost" center...) in the back of the card base. It doesn't show from the front, and without it, the flip-fold won't flip or fold, so... pretty important step!
That's it! Once you have the mechanism piece and the base piece with the circle cut-out, the rest is just embellishing. I added a little Whisper White Organza Ribbon pull so it would be obvious to the recipient where to grab and what direction to pull.
Now, the largest scalloped Circles Collection Framelit won't fit in our regular medium sized envelopes, so I whipped out my Envelope Punch Board and made a coordinating Designer Series Paper envelope to match. The perfect finishing touch! Wouldn't that be amazing to receive? You'd definitely feel appreciated and loved!
