Have you ever wanted to create your own double flip card? In this video I show you how I designed a double flip card in Cricut Design Space. Put your own twist on this card using Melody Lane’s digital paper. For this snowman card I used the Chloe Paper Set! It is an enchanting winter filled paper! One tip, when choosing a graphic for a flip card, try to use one that has a shadow layer. You can watch the video here!

Hi Everyone! Have you ever needed a sympathy card and didn't have much time to make it? This card is simple and quick to make. I chose Melody Lane's Skylar Digital Paper for this project because it gave me a sense of calm and peace. You could change the card up to suit whatever occasion you may need in a hurry! Watch the video here!

5) Place transparency sheet on top of foil and roll with brayer
6) Cut foil to size and wrap around photo mat or chipboard
7) Layer the transparency and foil pieces
Now that you have the background complete, it's up to you to create something for the front!
For my front, I chose to use some foiled text on an additional sheet of transparency, but found the text displayed best with a piece of vellum behind it.
In the video, you can see the difference between using a darker, monochromatic background like the Amy paper I show in the video versus a more rich and vividly colored image, like the Jenny digital paper set provides.
There is no need to glue the transparency to foil as the layers of the assembled frame will keep things in place. This makes it easy to swap designs if you want to freshen up a look!
The effect is best achieved when the foil is tightly pressed against the transparency, which the rear panel of the frame does quite well on its own. Try using additional pieces of cardstock or chipboard to shim things more tightly, if necessary.
I tried using some glossy Mod Podge to bond the transparency to the foil and it decreased the reflective bling of this technique, so I don't recommend it.

Hello! Shannon again with another card. It was cold and rainy here today, so I spent the day in my craft room. I came across a really cool card on Pinterest that was cut with a paper trimmer and stamped, so I thought I would try to recreate it in Design Space and share the file with everyone!
Notice the quilted table-cloth? That's 4 papers from the Lorrie collection! Don't they work just perfectly?! I used them as Pattern Fills for the triangles of the quilt, and then flattened everything together to make a very realistic and eye-catching table-cloth for the card!
You can find the link to the original project (which also includes a really great assembly tutorial), more information about how to use the Pattern Fill feature in this project, and the Design Space cut file on my Blog. I also highly recommend this really great video that Melody made to get better acquainted with pattern fills and digital paper. Enjoy!
