A Class Favorite

 

Thinlits-Sympathy-Card

We made this card at my class in September, and it was the class favorite.  It was the first time my class had the opportunity to use the new Label Card Thinlits, and it was true love.  They all agreed that it creates a dramatic card, but is easy to do.

Thinlits-Sympathy-Interior

Because I like having a place to write in the card and sign it without it being seen before the card is opened, I like to add an extra piece that folds out to the right.  It’s also easy to extend the width of the card by putting the card stock on top of the die on the right side, instead of under it, so it doesn’t get cut off on that side.  That’s a little trickier, so for the class, the extra piece was quick and easy.

Petite-Pairs-Sympathy-Label

I have two different samples in this post, one is a sympathy card and one is a birthday card (below).

Petite-Pairs-Sympathy-Inter

The Petite Pairs Stamp Set is perfect to use with this flip card.

Thinlits-Card-Bow-Closure

A ribbon was added to keep the card closed.  The next photo shows how the ribbon wraps around the back of the card.  A tiny little slot for the ribbon to feed through is cut on the very edge the flap (it’s easier to see in the second photo, where the card is open).

Thinlits-Card-Back-with-Ver

The back of the card shows how the Wisteria Wonder card stock is stamped on both sides with VersaMark and a stamp from Flowering Flourishes for a soft tone-on-tone look.

Thinlits-Variation-with-Bri

The Whisper White piece is stamped on the outside with Wisteria Wonder ink to match the print on the card base.  The inside of the flap is stamped with another stamp from Flowering Flourishes.

Petite-Pairs-Birthday-Label

The is the second card that I made, with a different sentiment and flowers that are placed a little differently, and these have Rhinestone Basic Jewels.  The first card used Pearl Basic Jewels.  The So Saffron flowers were cut with the Boho Blossoms Punch and snipped with Paper Snips to get them more dimension.

    Cindy,
    Love this idea and so appreciate your willingness to share it all! This will help many people with the ease of the extra piece and will allow them even more creative choices! Thank you so much!

    Such a great idea to get more writing space! Awesome. Thank you for sharing not only the idea but all the dimensions to. I am going to try this for sure. 🙂

    Why didn’t I think of that? What a great idea to make that extra space for writing! Your card is beautiful! Love the accents of yellow! Thanks for sharing. . .off to check out your other posts, found you through Mary Fish’s blog!

    Beautiful card! I like the innovative panel on the side so you can write in the card. Very cute way to decorate and use the “label” part of the card (the flippy part). I like the little flowers! 🙂

    Quick, simple way to do this . . . what a WOW! card. Liked the way you used the ribbon as a pretty “latch,” too!

    This card is beautiful. I just ordered this wisteria paper yesterday.

    I saw a template from Mary Fish back in april 24, 2012 for a baby card.

    How do you use this template?

    I do not see the size of cards listed that you are making for this sympathy card or the baby blanket card from 2012. What is the size of both of these cards.

    I have been working on sympathy cards this week.

    Thanks, for you help I appreciate this.

      Hi! I sent you an email to answer your questions because my answer is kind of lengthy!

    Wow! This is so elegant!

    Cindy, I adore the use if the folded panel as opposed to creating a longer card base. I believe it is a more interesting interactive result. Another great card. Thank you for the constant inspiration.

    I can see why it was a favorite. Well done!

    LOVE this card Cindy! Just curious what size you use for your fold-out white piece? Such a clever idea! And a fantastic card all around. Thanks so much for sharing your creativity with us!!

      Thanks so much for your kind comment!

      The white fold-out piece measures 6″ x 5-1/4″ and is folded down the middle to be 3″ x 5-1/4″

    Hi Cindy,
    I just signed up for your website Pretty Impact. I love your class favorite cards , they are simply beautiful!!
    I would love to make this card and have the supplies to do so, but would. like to know if you could please e-mail the written instructions for it? I would really appreciate thy extra help.
    Watching a video is helpful but I’m deaf so can’t hear specific instructions such as the sizes to cut the card stock or other directions.
    I love your designs and look froward to seeing more of them.
    Thanks so much,
    Debbie

      Hi Debbie,

      Thanks for your sweet comment about my cards, and I’m so glad you signed up to follow my blog.

      Unfortunately, I do not have written step-by-step instructions for this card. Most of the pieces are cut with the Label Card Thinlits Die. The extra piece of white card stock measures 6″ x 5-1/4″ and is folded down the middle to be 3″ x 5-1/4″. I hope this is helpful!

      Cindy

  13. Brian King

    Very nice, Cindy! You really classed up this fun card die. Love the ribbon idea!
