Milkshake Flop Card

Milkshake Flop Card

Hi All,

I used a die to create this special fold – it’s call a flop card die (it’s very technical). 🙂 Here is the opened card:

Milkshake Flop Card

I created a similar card without a die here. The die makes it a lot easier, and I like the stitched circle that comes with it.

Here is a close-up of the milkshake coloring:

I used the Coffee Craze set by Mint Owl Studio. Only after recording the video did I realize that this set is hard to come by. Simon Says Stamp doesn’t have it anymore, and it’s out of stock at Mint Owl Studio. I emailed the owner but haven’t heard anything, so I’m not sure what’s going on with that. Too bad because it’s a great set! Anyway, kind of like we talked about in the May Poll post, this happens sometimes.

Anyway, enjoy the video and have a great weekend!

    Wow, that really is a cute stamp set! I love all the large images and the variety. I hope they bring it back! This is another cute card, Darlene! I like the die…I may have to indulge myself and buy it. 😉

    Thanks so much for sharing, and Happy Mother’s Day!

    Thanks so much for showing us how you achieved the shadows with the Copic W3. It really made a big difference. I also liked the way you did the cream. It looked so realistic Very clever how you achieved the strip with stitching on both sides. I’ll be trying that! I also loved the flop card die. It is definitely going into my wish list!

    Forgot to ask you if there was any bleeding through the card stock onto the back when you grounded the cup with a Copic marker. I’d really be interested to know. I’ve always been afraid to do this in case there was bleed through.

      Hi Connie. I just checked the back and there is a tiny bit of bleed-through, but not much. It’s the same color as the cardstock, so not very noticeable.

        Thanks Darlene. Being the same colour paper as the Copic marker would also help. Happy Mother’s Day too!

    Really sweet card, Darlene! Love the “streaky” coloring on the cup. Gives a nice bit of visual texture & interest to the milkshake. Just wish it were a chocolate milkshake! LOL Hope you have a very happy Mother’s Day this weekend! 🙂 ~ Andrea

    I could get so much use out of the Flop Card Die. Thanks for showing the measurements to make it fit an A2 envelope. I LOVE this card!

    Did the copic markers bleed through the card stock where you grounded the cup? Adding the gray to the pink was a nice touch.

      Hi Becka. Yes, it did a little, but it wasn’t very noticeable, especially since it was the same color as the cardstock.

    Awesome card Darlene, this layout would work with a lot of other images. I watched the video where you made this same cut with just a circle die and I think it’s just as fabulous.
    Thank you for sharing.

    I love how you did the cup too. It looks all shiny and liquidy (spell check says there is no such word so I guess I just made that word up! LOL) like some of those expensive cups i’ve seen in the stores. Great coloring job!
