Sailing Home Flip Flap Card

Last weekend I held classes using the Sailing Home suite to make a Flip Flap card. I fell in love with this suite as soon as I spotted it in the catalogue.
My previous Flip Flap card was made in imperial measurements so I wrote a tutorial in metric as I thought that might be useful for my ladies. I like them to have a visual reminder for when they make the flip flap card at home. There were also supplies and samples for the ladies to make 3 other cards but I think the tutorial kept them pretty busy!
Here is the card I taught...

This is with the card open, showing the front of the flaps

Still open but showing the reverse flap images

The card takes a little time - my ladies spent well over 2 hours making it - ou also need to be accurate with your measuring and cutting. But I am very pleased with the results and think the ladies were too.
Below are the other 3 cards. The ladies didn't get time to make these but took the supplies home with them to continue crafting.
The first card is a Stampin' Up! design CASED from the catalogue

The next card, featured in the catalogue as a shadow box card, has been altered to a more standard card but doesn't lose any of the original effect as you can see from the 2nd image which shows the card open.

The final card was designed by the lovely Maria Gamlin, who is in my team. She has kindly allowed me to use the design in class. I thought this was a great card and deserved to be seen by a larger audience!

The sea definitely looks stormy. This effect is created by using a grungy background stamp (I used Artisan Textures) and is heat embossed in white onto night of navy card.
I hope that you have enjoyed todays cards and feel inspired to go craft this weekend.
