Flip Flop and Butterfly Cards

Hi, Connie Nichol here with a couple of cards I created with electronic die cutting files from Suzanne Cannon for Quietfire Design.  So quick and so cute!  These files - flip flop or butterfly accordion cards are available from the Quietfire Design website as svg files and as studio files from the Silhouette Design store if you happen to have a Silhouette Cameo digital cutting machine.

I cut out the flip flop shape first from black Core'dinations cardstock to serve as the card base and then with Simple Stories patterned paper.  Using the patterned paper gave a very summery feel.  To make both a right and left shoe, I flipped the image to make a mirror image before cutting the second time.  

Not the easiest thing to photograph.  Here's another view:

For the butterfly accordion card, again I used Simple Stories patterned paper (two kinds) and Core'dinations cardstock to create a quick cheery card.  The stickers and enamel dots are also from Simple Stories. 

These cards were published in the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine Summer 2016 issue as part of a feature on shaped cards.  Be sure to pick up a copy and have a look!
