SSS Layered Flaps Card

Hi everyone!

Happy Monday!

I'm back after a hot week of church Family Camp in Michigan. We had a great speaker, the kids had fun fishing and swimmming, and I managed to get a little crafting in too. 

Today I'm sharing an interative card featuring the fun new Simon Says Stamp Perforated Flaps Dies and Playful Messages Stamps along with Simon's Center Cut Heart Background Stamp.

I stamped Simon's Cotton Candy Cardstock with their Center Cut Heart Stamp using their Rosie Cheeks Dye Ink before diecutting it with the largest of the Perforated Flaps Dies. I stamped the center heart on Neenah White Cardstock with MFT's Black Licorice Hybrid Ink, coloured it with Copics, cut it out, and adhered it in place with foam tape.

The second layer features Bazzill's Cotton Candy Cardstock which was diecut with the second largest Perforated Flaps Die. The sentiment from Simon's Playful Messages and hearts from the Cute Snowflakes Stamp Set were white heat embossed.

For the third layer I die cut Bazzill's Candy Hearts Cardstock with the smallest Perforated Flaps DieI stamped the Center Cut Heart Stamp on Neenah White Cardstock, colouring and cutting out some of the smaller hearts to use on this final flap.I also added a few heat embossed hearts.

Underneath the final flap is a piece of Simon's Schoolhouse Red Cardstock with another white heat embossed sentiment from the Playful Messages Stamp Set and hearts from the Cute Snowflakes Set.

I found it helpful to use a craft knife to go over all the perforated areas before assembling the layers. This made it easier to open each flap without tearing the cardstock.

This was such a fun card to make! I can see myself recreating it with a gift card, cash, and confetti for a birthday. In fact, my second son's birthday is later this week and all he's asking for is money, lol. This might be just be a fun way to present it!

Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog and for the sweet comments left. Special thanks to those of you who make use of my affialate links and support me in that way.

Hope you have a great week!

So much wow factor! I never would have guessed from the first image that there are so many layers on this card. It does not seem bulky at all. This is a great design to use multiple sentiments on a card. Thanks for sharing your creativity.
