Hinged Card for the TMITA/PCC Challenge

It's time for another Magical Monday TMITA/PCC Challenge.  Kim McDonald is our design team hostess this week and she has challenged us to make a non-traditional style card e.g., free standing pop up, joy fold, tri-shutter, etc.  The image  from Nina May is called "Bunny cupcake" .  Be sure to check out all the different type cards made by the other designers  this week and check out the  cute free  images for the give away on the TMITA/PCC blog.

As you know, I do like to make non-traditional style cards so I wanted to come up with  new non-traditional card I have not posted in the past.  I have never made a "hinged card" so that is what I am going to show you this week.  My card is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.  The c s pieces cut are: 

Lavender Lace 4.25 x 5.5 inches for the back of the card
Green Galore 4.25 x 3 inches for the top portion which is on hinge
Lavender Lace  4.25 x 3.75 inches for the bottom

The image was printed off then cut out with a 1.75" Nestability square
The Nestie scallop was cut out of Lavender Lace.  The image was colored with Copic markers.   Glitter was added to the cupcake. 

To decorate the front of the card I embossed both the green cs and the dp on the lower section with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  A Martha Stewart punch was used for the fence border.  The fence was layered on the lavender cs then topped with the embossed design paper.  A flower and bow were added to complete the card.  The two front pieces were placed over the back piece  then a brad added for the hinge.  Only the lower portion of the card was attached to the back.  The adhesive was added below the brad across the top; down the sides and along the bottom.  You need the top portion of this piece open so the top can slide  behind it to close.

The bunny image was attched after the card was complete. Dimensional tape was added on the middle and top portion of the  back of the image.  The tape should be even with the bottom portion of the card so the card closes in the right position.  I then stamped the verse  (GKD) on the inside. 

The  tutorial  I found on how to create this type card can be found  here.

I appreciate you stopping by.
