Graphic 45 Christmas Magic Flap Card

Hello Everyone!

We are having a Christmas card class using this years Graphic 45 Christmas Magic Paper. And guess what? NO FUSSY CUTTING! We will be making 5 A7 flap cards.


WHEN: Wednesday, October 3rd
TIME: 6:00 - 8:30pm
COST: $38 + GST

Contact Stacey at  or  778-533-4290 to reserve your spot

Using Graphic 45's Christmas Magic Collection we will be creating a variety of flap cards that reveal something hidden. All the die cutting will be done for you, and basic paper cutting so that you will have time in class to make 5 cards and do a little fussy cutting.
You will also be shown in class an idea of what you can do with the left over scraps at home to create 2 or 3 more cards. So if you are looking to get some Christmas cards going, this will be a great opportunity.

PLEASE BRING TO CLASS: Paper trimmer, scissors, double sided adhesive tape, white foam squares or tape, & liquid glue.

On each flap I have included a magnetic closure. This is not a must for flap cards, but I though it would be fun to include. Let's have a look at each card and it's flap.

Each flap opened reveals a little something. In the first card it reveals some stamp cut outs among other little cut outs from this collection.

This second card had a wide narrow flap with an oval.

A little closer look...

...and when the flap is opened it reveals a cut out sentiment on the flap with more cut out stamps.

You can see the layering in this next photo.

This third card, has a top flap that lifts ups.

You can see the layering from the side,...

...and when you lift the flap you get to see some cut out images.

For the fourth card, the wide narrow flap covers part of the main image with an image of it's own on the flap.

When you open the flap you reveal the entire image and a stamped sentiment on the inside of the flap.

Because, there was another image that went with this card, I decided to make a pop up on the inside.

The fifth, and last card, the flap comes from the bottom. Using the text on the paper and a cut out image for the bottom flap.

When opened, it turns out to be an easel card. again the text of the paper serves a purpose, as does the popped up coordinating image.

Lastly, I am showing you what can be done with all the leftover pieces. I had many and did not want to throw them away. So I made a few card bases like this one. I can use it horizontally like here,...

...or vertically like here.

When you have card bases like this one ready to go, you can add cut out images or larger Christmas sentiment stamped pieces.

Hope you have some fun creating some of your own flap cards.

Happy creating!
