Timeless Tropical Tab Flip Card for The Spot Challenge #109

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you my card for this weeks challenge over at The Spot.  This weeks challenge is a little different than most.  We came up with a challenge that isn't your typical card.  You want to create something for this challenge that isn't your normal card.  I decided to do another fun fold / interactive card, and you all know that I don't do a lot of them.  And It has a lot of layers.  I used products from the Tropical Oasis Suite in the January - June Mini Catalog.  Here's a look at my card.  

Tips & Tricks: 

This interactive card isn't really as hard as it may appear.  It's got a few more steps than I like but not to bad that I wouldn't complete it.  It really didn't take much time to complete and those are the types of fancy fold/interactive cards that I like.  You will need a standard card base 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 I used Early Espresso for mine.  You also need a matching piece of cardstock for the flip out and scraps for the layers.  the flip out is 2 x 6 scored at 2 & 2 1/2. 


Most of it is hidden behind the designer series paper which is cut at 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.  I popped it up on dimensionals to make the channel.  I used the classic label punch on the Tropical Oasis Designer Series paper to make the channel.  I then took the 2 x 6 piece and added tear & tape to the fold and added the stitched squares.  You need one large stitched square, two of the next size (one of those is whisper white and the other is early espresso), and one of the third size.  



I stamped and colored the flowers and leaves with my Stampin' Blends.  I then added some of the die cuts from the bundle onto the front of the card as well as adding some of the Tropical Oasis Trinkets.  I added a pull tab with the 5/16" Braided Burlap Trim and pull another section of it apart to make a very textural bow.  I tried a staple at first and hated how it looked.  


For the inside of my card i added another sentiment and stamped the palm trees onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock before adding it to the card.  Here's the challenge image that inspired my card today and the link to play along.
