Instructions: My card size is 5 1/2 X 5 1/2. You can find instructions for these flip cards on Youtube and Pinterest with dimensions as well. Make your card base and then cover the panels with pieces of the paper collection. I used the Spellbinders dies to cut out the circles for the front and back swing panels. Glue these down. Next I stamped the cardinals, the wedding bells and the sleigh bells using black Memento ink. Cut out the images using the coordinating dies. I used the Dove Blender Pen and Memento and Distress Inks to color the images. I added Frosting Powder to the limbs behind the cardinals and used a heat gun to set this and it turned white with the heat. I added glitter to the bells and holly and set them aside to dry. When dry add the cardinals and the bells to the center circles. Next I used the sponge and added glue and then dabbed it over the front and back panels then I added the Crystal Clear to that to give a bit more interest to the card. After I colored the Sleigh Bells I added dimensional tape to the back of the bells and adhered them to the front. Then I used dimensional tape to the whole image and adhered it to the card front. Glue down Medallion and then hot glue the string of pearls to the edge. Next I used the tags die to cut out one of the tags from the paper collection and using the dimensional tape I glued it to the front circle. The card is ready.
