Inkspirational Challenge #303 - SEASONAL - Merry Flip-It Fun Interactive Card Dies - Trio of Christmas Cards (Crop and Create 2023)


Welcome to Inkspirational Challenge #303 - Seasonal, where we're inviting you to draw inspiration from a "season" and create cards that are specific to that season. For instance, for Fall and Winter, you may consider the rapidly approaching US Thanksgiving and Christmas, respectively.  Whatever you choose, as long as a SEASON + specific occasion are evident, you're good to go.

NOTE: a bit photo heavy! 
I'm sharing a trio of Christmas cards I made during the September Crop and Create event. They all feature products from The Stamps of Life:

Merry Flip-it Fun Interactive Card dieThis die set creates an A2 (4.25 x 5.5 inches) Flip-it Card with a fancy shape in the middle, layering dies for the panels and a Merry word die.

Christmas Fun Paper Pad, Merry Clear Stamp Bundle, Christmas Add-On Dies (and I will be honest: the paper didn't really resonate with me - just a bit too cutesy, but - they were part of the class, so I was a good student and used them. I plan to try this die with other papers/images at some point; it really is quite versatile).

Card 1
Our 'starter' card, the simplest of the three, where the 'Merry' is visible both on the outside and inside.

Card 2: Front
This one shows the Flip-it die in action, where the 'Merry' section flips to the second sentiment.

Card 2: Inside

Card 3 - Front
This was the 'advanced' version and includes three inside panels, designed to leave space for writing a message which, in the version above, would likely need to be placed on the back of the card. A bit more fiddly, but still very easy to make.

Card 3: Inside Panels

Looking forward to seeing your SEASONAL themed cards in the gallery! 
Last time we ran this challenge, we had close to 70 awesome entries; let's see if we can surpass that!

Thank you for dropping by!
