Crazy 4 Challenges Double Flip-its Purple Onion Stamps Card

I saw this tutorial by Keryn Campbell a while ago on Pinterest, and when we had the challenge to create a card with more than one fold at Crazy 4 Challenges I thought I'd give it a go!

I used a Sizziz Flip-its die to make the cuts, roughly following Keryn's tutorial (I just looked at the pictures to be honest - I didn't measure anything). I used the dies in the set to cut the patterned paper layers.

For the centre patterned paper panel, I die cut the panel as usual with the die from the set, then trimmed it down on the right-hand side to the right width to fit the card. I then turned it upside down, and ran it through the die again to get the little in-cut shape on the right-hand side of the panel too. The paper is from 'Printshop' by Studio Calico, and the white panels were cut with a matching Framelits die set.

I used stamps from Purple Onion Designs, which I lightly coloured with Copic pens, cut out by hand, and glued sequins to. (The sun stamp is actually a setting sun stamp, stamped twice and stuck together in the middle.)

I like how when the card is folded up, the large cloud obscures the sun, then when you open it, the sun is revealed fully. Also, you have loads of room for writing a message or adding further decoration if you wanted to.
