An Echo Park Hello Summer Flip Card

Meet today's Card....It's A flip card using Echo Park's Hello Summer collection and more fun diecutting files designed by Lori Whitlock.

 
In addition to the regular paper pack, I loved this set so much I bought the digital version for my blog header.  I decided in an effort to get more bang for my buck I would experiment with printing the digital paper onto heavy weight cardstock for my card base.  This had the added benefit of working well for the flip card without having to deal with another distracting print showing through from the back side. 
 
I ended up printing out the polka-dot digital paper using my Silhouette Cameo software.  By importing it into my project I was able to "lay" the paper over the card shape and only print the amount I needed with very little waste.  It was my first time trying this, but I was excited with how easy it was!

 
Lori Whitlock's Silhouette Files used:
3d flip swing card circle
 
Other supplies used:
Echo Park's Hello Summer 12x12 paper pack & Stickers (also designed by Lori Whitlock). ;)
"Hello" Summer Dots Everywhere" digital paper (purchased at Jessica Sprague here)
Neenah Solar White Cardstock
Other: Thread, orange vinyl (for bird legs)
 
Thanks so much for visiting!  :)
