Watermelon Hello

For my final project as a Guest Designer for The Kraft Journal Challenges, I let this week's Watermelon Challenge theme influence my choice of colors for this card and for the image I used. The card base for this Flip Card is a piece of Lunch Bag Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock. I first saw this fun fold on YouTube in this Flip Fold video by France Martin. The digi image was colored with Copic markers and die cut before being double matted on red and green cardstock.  Instead of using patterned paper, I stamped the red cardstock in a random pattern with red ink and then randomly  made lots of white dots all over this panel. The sentiment was stamped on a tag and tied with pieces of Red Baker's Twine and Dark Green Baker's Twine.

The black scalloped circle frame was accents with Enamel accents. As you open the card, the image panel rotates to flip through the front opening and be visible on the inside.

There is room inside for a message. This finished card is standard A2 size.

Cardstock: The Kraft Journal (Lunch Bag Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock), Bazzil (red, green), Georgia Pacific (white)
Stamps: Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps digi (Kiwi Koala's Watermelon), Mark's Finest Papers clear stamps (Dogwood Blossoms), Flourishes clear stamps (Berry Sweet Frame)
Ink: Versafine (Onyx Black, Crimson Red)
Tools/Embellishments: The Kraft Outlet ( Red Baker's Twine and Dark Green Baker's Twine), Stickles (Star Dust), Spellbinders dies (Standard Circles Large and Small, Petite Scalloped Oval Large), Stampin' Up tag punch, Uniball Signo white gel pen, Ranger Enamel Accents (white), Gelly Roll black gel pen

This is a fun different fold! I really like how you made your own patterned paper, it looks great and suits the water melon theme of the image just perfectly!
