Christmas Flip

Today's card was made for a challenge on the PW Message Board.  It was made differently than other flip cards I've made, because it was made using the instructions posted on that thread.  It was made using the following supplies:
  • Card Base: double-sided card stock from DCWV.  Stripes were enhanced using HOTP Dazzles - Black Thin Lines, Black Jewel (silver edge cut off & remaining used for flower centers), and Camera (which was placed on top of a piece of ribbon from my stash. Though you can't see it in the picture, the card base is cut & the portion that extends past the front fold is flipped out.
  • Focal: Mat cut using "Antiques Labels One" die from JustRite & outlined with a black Sharpie. Focal itself is from HOTP Ebony Color Me Christmas Greetings Topper pack - colored with red Gelatos.  
  • Inside: Mat is cut from black paper with same die used for mat on the front.  I fussy cut the cream-colored inner piece.  The message is stamped with stamps from JustRite's "Mix and Match Christmas Blessings", except for the signature which was done using an embossing pen.  The whole was then heat embossed with Garnet PEARLuster embossing powder.
