Today Sandiebella teaches us how to make a beautiful FRAME FLIP CARD  featuring our new TINY TOWNIE ASTROLOGY CHART
This card is simple to make and so pretty to display or give to a loved one! rubber stamp used TINY TOWNIE ASTROLOGY CHART card by Sandie Dunne

Designer paper
Scoring board and bone folder
Wet glue/double sided tape
How to:
Stamp the astrology chart onto a piece of white card measuring 3.25″(H) x 4.25″(W). Stamp the Tiny Townie image and sentiment onto a piece of white card measuring 4.5″(H) x 5.5″(W). Color the images with your preferred medium.
Card base:
Cut two pieces of card measuring 5″ x 11.5″ and two more pieces measuring 5″ x 6.5″
Score the 5″ x 6.5″ pieces on the long side at 0.5″ and 3″.

Score the 5″ x 11.5″ in pieces on the long side at 6″ and 8.5″


Cut another piece of card, and a piece of designer paper measuring 5″ x 6″. With a pencil, mark in 0.75″ from each edge to create a rectangle. Alternatively, score at 0.75″ on the four sides as shown below.

Using a craft knife, remove the inner rectangle on both the card and paper pieces.

On the 5″ x 11.5″ pieces, fold in the 6″ score line and fold back the 8.5″ score line.

On the 5″ x 6.5″ pieces, fold in the 3″ score line and fold back the 0.5″ score line.

Adhere the 6″ section of each long piece together.

Apply adhesive to the 3″ end section and adhere the 3.5″ section of the smaller piece to it – lining up the outside edges. Repeat on the opposite end of the long piece with the other small piece. Ensure the fold lines meet when the font section is closed.

There will be 0.5″ difference between the front and back pieces you just stuck together.

Adhere the paper frame to the card frame.

Open back the two 0.5″ sections and apply adhesive to them.

Adhere the frame to the 0.5″ sections only.
