Clockworks Birthday Flip Card

I bought this set of Thinlits to make a circle flip card for one of my Christmas cards and never used it, so thought I would have a go today and combined Charisma Cardz Challenge #1 for 2014 to make a birthday card with Color Throwdown's Challenge #273 to use this cool colour combo, which I thought I would be great colours for a guy card!

And here's my flip card closed... Had to do a lot of fussy cutting to get all my layers as I just cannot not have my mounts, but cutting circles freehand is so not my forte!

And open on the other side. I love this clockworks set, even though it is SO not me at all. Makes for some quick grungy cards and it doesn't matter if the images are all over the place, overlapped or not stamped properly at all. Messes with my OCD though!


Stamps: Clockworks, Happiest Birthday Wishes (Retired) both from Stampin' Up

Papers: Tempting Turquoise, Basic Gray, Whisper White all from Stampin' Up

Inks: Tempting Turquoise, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate all from Stampin' Up

Accessories: Circle Card Thinlits, Basic Gray Ribbon both from Stampin' Up, Brad from stash

And that's all from me for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!
