Fancy Flap Cards are Easy with Cheery Lynn Designs

 Happy Tuesday everyone! Today on the Cheery Lynn Blog I show you this simple technique to create a Fancy Flap on your card. The original intent of the Angel Wings that come with Cheery Lynn Dies was to create a neutral background upon which to adhere the intricate doilies to help them stand out! The fact that they are HALF the size of the doily make them perfect for this technique to achieve the fancy flap look!

Cheery Lynn Dies used

To create the base of the card cut an 8½×5½" piece of card stock. Fold in half and crease. The gently fold again the front and lightly crease to just mark a crease on the edges. Line up the angel wing die on the light crease. Run through your die cut machine. fold cut back to main fold of card...you can either glue down or leave loose. I then stamped the background with a script stamp for this card.

I then glued in my doily, lining it up with the angle cut. I then grouped the new Bow Die with leaves and flowers to create a focal cluster. I added the music in the background to contrast with the stamped script. I hope you enjoy creating fancy flap cards using the angel wings that come with your doilies!
