I love my Demo Diva Night, and I wish we could get together more than once a month.  This group of ladies are such dear friends and so very, very talented.  I always learn a new technique or trick, and it is such a great opportunity for lots of laughter.  My husband would swear we were all drinking from the sounds of glee and happiness escaping the Rubber Room.  I will be sharing thelovely projects we made with you all week long, so be sure to stop back by.

Last night I shared a project  I was very excited about.  It was a flip card made with the Wonderous Wreath Stamp Set and matching Framelits Dies.  I saw this card on Pinterest and watched a quick video, and now I am hooked.  I cannot wait to use this technique for a card with my star framelits dies and the hearts for Valentine's day and weddings.  I have lots of uses for this technique!

Here is the card I shared last night with the Divas. This is all closed up,

and this is opened up.
It was very easy to do.  You cut your card stock at 5 1/2" by 8 1/2" and score on the 8 1/2" side at 2 1/8" and 4 1/4".  Then you put your wreath framelits onto the card stock with the 2 1/8" score line in the middle of the wreath.  Set your Big Shot up with a magnetic plate, an acrylic plate, your card stock with the framelits on it, and then place your top acrylic plate so it is sitting on your 2 1/8" score line.  This will make it so the top half of your wreath framelit does not have an acrylic plate on top of it, and it won't get cut out.  Then run the sandwich through your Big Shot.  Then take off your outside wreath framelit (the largest one) and leave your smaller wreath framelit in place.  Put your top acrylic plate on top of the wreath framelit (covering the entire wreath) and put it through your Big Shot. This will cut out the inside of the wreath.  I used my Stamp-a-Majig to line the words up in the center of the wreath.  I hope you will give this technique a try.
