I found the tutorial to these fantastic flip flop cards by Kim Burmeister on Youtube. Of course hers looks very different to mine.
On Wednesday I went out to visit a friend on a property and thought I'd make her a card for having us out there. What stamp set suits better than Rustic Rooster? I manually coloured him in using just about every marker in the Earth Elements range. I then embossed over the top of him and stamped the words over the top. The embossing resists the ink, so that you don't end up having words stamped over the rooster.
Below is a picture of the card half opened out. I think these cards can be left without sentiments if you like. I wrote a long thank you in the middle of this card (after I took the photo), so I didn't want to have a stamp in the way.
I think these cards are stunning, but so simple to make. You could make them without even stamping, if that's what you wanted. Just use some of our fantastic DSP!

I'd love to promise that I'll be back soon, but I am heading back out to work for the next couple of days, so it may be a bit quiet.
Till next time, happy stamping...
