Guinea Flip Birthday Card by Jil Lebel

Hello Ai fans!

I could hardly wait to start sharing the my flip cards with you.  They are so fun and different from anything else that is on the market right now.  I used the Guinea Flip Card Set along with a few images from the Octopus Flip card set to make a boyish Birthday card.
The images from the Guinea Pig Flip card set were stamped onto Strathmore Bristol Paper with Gina K Designs Black Amalgam Ink and colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.  Several of the cupcakes from the Octopus Flip Card set were also stamped out and colored. The colors used are listed at the end of this post.  The color was applied to a Watercolor Palette and then applied with a #4 Brush in light Layers of color. All of the images were cut out.
The card base was cut with the Flip Card Die following the instructions on the stamp packaging.  The Happy Birthday sentiment was die cut out of black paper. The front of the card was colored using the MFT Mini Cloud Edge Mix-Ables Stencil with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  Spare sheets of white cardstock were die cut with a grass border and colored with Bundled Sage and Iced Spruce Distress Ink.  They were splattered with watered down Iced Spruce Ink and added to the card using adhesive and foam tape.  The colored guinea pigs were added over the grass. The Happy Birthday die cuts were added over the guinea pig arms. The cupcakes were added around the card.
The inside was colored using the same stencil with Spun Sugar, Dried Marigold, Bundled Sage and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  The greeting was stamped onto the flap with black ink. The guinea pigs were attached right below the greeting.
