Flip down stack card

Good Morning!

This is Jen from 3 Cats and a Bug.

I'm always looking for different and interesting ways to make cards.  The other day I found a tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers, (here ) and thought this would make a wonderful card for my husband.

I started out with a 8 X 9.25 piece of card stock, which I scored at 4in.
I cut out a piece of patterned paper at 7.75 X 9 for the top of the card.  Using my spellbinders, I also cut 5 light pink scalloped squares at 2.25.

I also cut out a small piece of paper at .75 X 3 and folded it in half and glued it together.  Next I stuck the end not folded into my circle punch to round the edges.

The rest of this is a bit hard for me to describe, you might want to check out the link above!   With the wrong side up, line up 3 of the 5 squares.  Scs uses double sided tape, I just used my pink atg gun.  Keeping the squares even, run tape down the length of all three squares.
Next I took two pieces of ribbon and with the bottom square a tad bit closer to the middle square than the top square I attached the ribbon to the tape and cut off anything that hung over the edges.
I took another square and glued it over the bottom square.  Then I added the tab I made with my circle punch  and attached it to the center square.
I added my last square over the middle, which is the top piece that shows on the card.  Note that it is upside down at first.  The very top square is what will be glued to the card front.
Since I didn't have any photo turns or magnetic circles I had to use velcro tabs.  It worked, but I really didn't need anything that strong!  All that was left was attaching the top square to the card front and decorating the squares.  It was a pretty easy card to make, the hardest part was getting the ribbons even.

Thanks for looking!
