Miss You Girl Flip Card

Packaged Card

Don't you love a card that is all wrapped up like a present? That is what this card reminds me of with its decorative bow holding everything together. The bow looks a little squashed, but that is only because I did a dry run to see if the card would fit into its envelope before taking photos. Oops! And, in case you are wondering, it did-- with a little encouragement. Hence, the flattened bow. 

Once you slide off the wrapper, the flip card is revealed...

Miss You Girl

Meet, Miss You Girl. She is an adorable digital stamp for PolkadoodlesDigi. They have some fantastic digital stamps that I love. 

I made this card for a specific friend in mind, and when I saw Miss You Girl, I knew she was the perfect choice for my focal point. I colored her in using my alcohol markers and then scanned her back into my computer to keep the colored version, and so that I could resize her as needed.

The card itself is a 5" x 7" flip card. For beginners who own a die machine, I would recommend buying the die (less expensive alternate die). If you own a Cricut and are proficient in Design Studio, or like to challenge yourself, save some money and create your own cut-file. That is what I did. 

I have been looking for a project to use this gorgeous cardstock from Cricut. I received it in a Mystery box I purchased a while back. The 'live for today' banner is part of the Simple Stories Vintage Garden District collection.

On the flip side of the card, I used a hello die, which I cut several times to layer together for a more dimensional look. I opted to keep the background insert on the interior a simple dot design using a Darice embossing folder so as not to compete with the patterned cardstock. I also used a couple of simple Cricut Access cut files for the interior. To complete the interior, I added a double sentiment banner and a bit of bling. 

I really wanted to attach a pink or purple fluffy satin bow, alas, I did not have any much to my dismay. 

Here are a few more close-ups...

I thoroughly enjoyed creating this card. It is always fun to design for a friend. How about you? Is there something special you are working on? I would love to hear about your creation! Just drop me a line in the comment section below.

Be safe and stay healthy, my friends!
