Magnolia Double Bridge and Flip Card

Even though the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set retired last June, I just couldn't resist pulling it off the shelf to create with it once again. I have a special occasion coming up for this card later this week. This design is the Double Bridge and Flip card. 

I thought the Magnolia was the perfect focal point and accented the Black and White patterns I used from the current Pattern Party Designer Series Paper. Adding the Basic Black card stock layers gave the card just the POP it needed!

Coloring the Magnolia bloom with Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers made the flower come to life. The Thinking of You tag accented with a Petal Pink circle, balances the color of the magnolia nicely.

I love to make sure the envelope flap matches the card for an extra touch of class. Paper size 2-3/8" x 6".


Sneak Peek inside below.

Cutting & Assembly Directions:

Thick Basic White cardstock card base cut 5.5" x 8.5", scored at 4.25".On what will be the front of the card you will measure in from each side 1.25". With your paper trimmer you will slit up to the score line to create each side section. This leaves the middle section 3" wide.

With Basic Black cardstock cut four pieces 1" x 4" and one piece 2.75" x 4". Adhere two pieces to their front sections referring to the first photo above. The other two pieces adhere to the inner portion of the card as shown in the fourth photo.

Select three different Black and White patterns from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper collection.
Cut four pieces 7/8" x  3-7/8" and one piece 2-5/8" x 3-7/8".  Adhere these pieces as shown on the front sections and the inner card sides.

For the Bridge portion - cut one piece Thick Basic White cardstock 1.25" x 5.5" and one piece Basic Black cardstock 1" x 5.5".  Adhere the two pieces together. The Bridge will only be attached to the two front side sections.

With a 4" square piece of Basic White cardstock and using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, stamp the Magnolia image. Use the matching Magnolia die to cut out with your die cut machine. Color carefully with the Stampin' Blends. Using Dimensionals affix the Magnolia so it only attaches to the bridge and right side section.

With a scrap of Basic White and Petal Pink cardstock, die cut the two circles for the tag. Stamp the greeting using the Memento Black ink. Adhere layers together. Raise with dimensionals on the left side of the bridge. Add the three embellishments. All Done!

Can you keep a secret? This card is for one of my team members who is celebrating her 10th Stampaversary very soon! I'm so happy for her!
