As promised here are the instructions for the 1st card from my Flip Flop Class, Pull & Pop Card. This card will fit perfectly in a business sized envelope.
Stamp Sets: Tree Trimmings, Sincere Salutations
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Merry Moments Designer Series Paper
Ink: Real Red, Old Olive, Basic Brown and Basic Black
Accessories: Dimensionals, Scallop Circle Punch, Stapler, Black or Brown Stampin' Marker, Snail Adhesive, Paper Snips.
Cut two pieces of Chocolate Chip cardstock: 3-3/4" x 11", score at 2" and 3-1/4". Fold the first scored line in a 'mountain fold' and the second scored line in a 'valley fold'.
Cut a piece of Real Red card stock to 3" x 5-1/2". Lay the piece in landscape position in front of you. Using a ruler and pencil make a 1-1/8" tick mark to the left of the top right corner and also down from that same top right corner.
Line up the two tick marks with a ruler and score with a bone folder from one mark to the other.
Turn Real Red card stock so the just scored corner is at your bottom right. Fold up and use a bone folder to firmly press that crease.
Turn one of your pieces of Chocolate Chip card stock so that the scored edges are to the right side of the card stock. Apply adhesive to the back of the folded corner and adhere along the edge of the first scored fold on the Choc. Chip card stock.
When you fold the edge of the Choc. Chip card stock on its score lines, your Real Red cardstock will fold down as well. Give the folds a rub with the bone folder for a crisp fold.
Apply adhesive to the small edge panel of the Choc. Chip card stock to the right of the Real Red piece. Apply adhesive to the same panel on the other piece of Chocolate Chip card stock.
Adhere the two pieces of Chocolate Chip card stock together with the scored edges facing opposite of each other. Make sure that all edges are flush with each other.
Use the bone folder to set all of your folds.
Cut a piece of patterned paper from the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper: 2-3/4" x 3-3/4"
Attach this patterned paper to the top of the Real Red pop up piece. Leave a 1/8" margin on all three sides.
Attach a photo (horizontal or vertical) or invitation to this DSP layer, leaving space below for your signature.
Cut a piece of patterned paper to 7-3/4" x 2-3/4". Stamp ornament strings, at various heights, along the top of this patterned paper, before attaching patterned paper to Real Red card stock.
Cut a piece of Real Red card stock to 7-3/4" x 3-1/4"
Layer these two pieces.
Stamp 'Holiday Greetings' image along the right side of the patterned paper.
Stamp each of the ornaments from the Tree Trimings set on Very Vanilla cardstock: twice with Real Red, twice with Old Olive and twice with Basic Brown (or Chocolate Chip) inks. Cut each out with Paper Snips. Apply Dimensionals to the backs of the ornaments---use at least two.
Mount these ornaments onto the front of the card aligning them with the ornaments strings.
Use the scallop circle punch to punch a half circle from the patterned paper.
Adhere the half circle to the far left edge of the card so that some of the scallop hangs off the card. Use a staple to secure the tab.
Use the marker to write the word "pull'.
And go surprise your friends............
