Another Double-flip Card

I really have been enjoying my Circle Card Thinlit lately, especially since I tried out that new Double-flip style of card which Carol Matthews introduced.  You've seen the one I posted for the February Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop.  Well, several people have asked if I would be posting a tutorial showing how to make one of these cards and today I began making one from scratch and taking photos every step of the way.  That post is here.

In the meantime, here's a sneak peek at my brand new card.  This time I chose to have the first flip lower than the second flip.  It's an easy choice.  You can do it either way just by choosing one side of the die-cut cardstock or the other.

For this card, I chose that gorgeous Watercolour Wonder Designer Series Paper featured in the Occasions Catalogue.  The primary colours in the piece I decided to use are Whisper White, Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango.  For my base cardstock, therefore, I used some Crushed Curry.  For further layers I used some Tangerine Tango cardstock and also some Watercolour Paper which I brushed over with a wash of Crushed Curry.  I also used some of that wonderful Modern Medley Designer Series Paper.  Of course, since it has a Very Vanilla base, I had to do some sponging with the Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango inks to make it fit in better.

For the little flowers which I cut out using the Petite Petals punch, I decided to use a piece of coffee filter.  I tried our Creped Filter paper first but it was simply too fragile for the look for which I was aiming.  I used Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango re-inkers and alcohol for the little flowers and finally dabbed some dots into the centres with my matching markers.
