Grateful Card Using Anna Griffin Flip cards kit

Hello friends!  How is everyone doing?  I hope you have had a great start to the New Year!  You may not know this about me; but I am a variety person.  I love buffets, many different crafting suppliers, etc.  Most of all, I love CTMH as my main supplier for most of my crafts.  But, I still have to have those quick card kits; especially Anna Griffin.  I love her products and especially her Cricut Cartridges.  

I am a collector.  I collect so many things in the crafting world.  My biggest one is patterned papers and printed cardstock.  I also love digis and own almost 20,000 of them. Can you believe that?  I use as many as I can; but I will probably never use all of them that I have bought over the past 5 years.   I try to support my favorite artists; which is why I buy so many.  But, I do love creating cards that I don't have to color once in a while.

I created this Anna Griffin flip card for my sister, Becky a few weeks ago.  It still takes me longer than most people to decide what I want to use and how I want to put it together. Quick and easy for me is an hour or two; rather than a few days. LOL! Even one of these quick cards has taken me as much as 3 days; with the thinking process, etc.   Especially if I don't really know the person I am sending it to.  It is harder to make a card for someone you aren't familiar with.  Right?

Inside card
These flip cards are like triple folded; so it is hard to take a picture of them.

Supplies used to create this card:

Card base, flowers and butterflies - Anna Griffin Flip Card Kit
Sentiment dies and sentiments - Anna Griffin Flip Card Kit

Sticker flowers and butterflies - Hot Off The Press Dazzles

  6. Super pretty card. Did you get all three of the flip-it sets on auto ship? I did and it can be overwhelming. I love the papers and the embellishments you chose. Thank you for joining the DL.ART Thankful Thursday January Linky Challenge.

    1. Hi Katieo. Yes, I did. I got them late; not in the auto ship; but I was able to get all 3. I love them. I haven't tried to cut with the dies yet. Thanks so much for your comment. Hugs.

  7. I am really drawn to the lovely water color flowers on your card and am very impressed with the "workings" of the flip elements. Glad to know I'm not the only one who takes a long time to make card decisions....however, it is such fun to customize a card for a loved one. Thanks so much for playing along at Jo's Scrap Shack.

  9. Wow this is just a gorgeous card! I really love that Anna comes out with these easy card kits because sometimes we don't always have the time to sit there for an hour to put a card together and these come together in minutes and look like you spent all day on them! I absolutely love this card! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week in our Funday Friday challenge!! Remember we are now always anything goes! Have a wonderful day!
