Today’s card uses the Hello Harvest Stamp Set, Rustic Pumpkin Dies, Gingham Cottage 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper and the Rustic Harvest 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. Flip Flap cards consist of two card bases combined to make one card with multiple flaps.
I started by cutting the two card bases using Early Espresso cardstock. Essentially, the card consists of a standard size card base and a smaller card base. You can find detailed instructions, including measurements, in the linked pdf project sheet below.
I used a Mossy Meadow print from the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper pack and the Pumpkin Pie print from the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper pack to decorate the panels on both the insides and outsides of the card bases. I die cut the two embossed pumpkins from the Rustic Pumpkin Dies set in Very Vanilla cardstock along with two pumpkin stems and two pumpkin vines using Mossy Meadow cardstock. A blending brush was used to lightly blend Early Espresso ink over the die cut pumpkins, focusing on the embossed areas. I then adhered the pumpkin stems and pumpkin vines to the two pumpkins.
On the larger Gingham Cottage DSP panel, a sentiment was stamped directly onto the lower right corner of the panel in Early Espresso ink. I then second-generation stamped the leaf from the Hello Harvest Stamp Set over the sentiment – also in Early Espresso ink. On the lower left corner of this panel, I stamped the two leaves again in Early Espresso. The larger of the die cut pumpkins will be placed over these stamped leaves later on.
A Very Vanilla panel was used for the inside sentiment and the lower corner of this panel was decorated with the leaf image. All of the DSP panels were adhered to the card bases. Opening the larger card base, I adhered the small card base to the larger card base so that the spine of the smaller base was on the left (rather than the standard right position). The attached smaller card base was opened, and I attached the inside sentiment panel to the base. To form the flip flap, I first closed the left panel (of the large card base), then closed the right panel of the small card base.
The card front was decorated with the larger die cut pumpkin and was placed over the two stamped leaves on this panel. Opening the card flaps again, the tall, skinny pumpkin was adhered to the flap on the left then a contrasting DSP leaf was adhered to the front of the pumpkin. The remaining die cut DSP leaves were adhered to the right flap.
The leaf from the Hello Harvest Stamp Set was used to decorate the front of the envelope, and a piece of coordinating DSP was adhered to the envelope flap. I fussy cut around the flap to finish off the envelope.
I love fun folds and I think the flip flap fun fold is perfect for showing off beautiful DSP and die cuts! And it’s fun to say, “flip flap”!

Product Ordering Details:
World Card Making Day is all about making beautiful, heartfelt cards. During the event, Stampin’ Up! will walk you through several projects, and you can create the cards along with the presenters. You’ll end up with new project ideas and some stunning new cards!
To make the most of this experience, you can order the Cottage Rose Bundle from the 2022–2023 Annual Catalog, the Cottage Wreaths Bundle from the July–December 2022 Mini Catalog, or the Warm Welcome Bundle (which you can get EARLY from the January–June 2023 Mini Catalog beginning September 1)! The bundles aren’t required to attend the event, but if you’d like to make the projects presented, you’ll want to get the bundles!
As an added bonus, when you order ANY of the three bundles used for the event, you’ll get a FREE gift of Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels! (Note that even if you order all three bundles, you’ll only receive one Iridescent Pearls gift.)
Check out the Product Flyer below for the bundle ordering information (click on DOWNLOAD). You can still attend this event without ordering the bundles, but it’ll be a lot more fun to craft together if you have one or more of the bundles!
If you’re interested in ordering any of the focus bundles for the event on October 1, you may be able to receive them in time if you select expedited shipping – there is an added cost for expedited shipping, though.
