Flip Over Card.

With my quest to try out as many new card shapes as possible I  found this video by Christina on how to make your own flip card using a metal ruler and craft knife.(Really it is quite safe though I did end up with a few iron shavings on my desk !)
I used a 6"x6" card blank for my base and cut my shape .
Floral images are  Penny Black Stickeroos  'Sun-kissed'
mounted onto a cream and then pink card panel.
Pink spotted paper is by Hunkydory.
Embossed panel made with a Spellbinders  M-Bossabilities 'Regal ' folder.
Butterfly is Memory Box Pippi/Isabella dies.
Gems on flower and butterfly from stash.
Unlike the video I have decorated all the sides of the card
which is why I have called it a Flip Over Card as it truly is.
Sentiment is made using Britannia Word dies.
The back of the card has  a Spellbinders 'Majestic Elements ' die for the sentiment.
Butterfly is  Spellbinders Shapeabilties  die S3-146.
Card is now with my swap partner in Australia.

Oh my...I love this pretty card. The fold is lovely and the way you did the back is perfect for the sentiment.
I will be playing at the butterfly challenge a lot as my goal this year is to actually use some of my flowers and butterflies!
