Sweet Stamps monthly challenge: Flip flop card

Hello my dear stamping friends! Our monthly Sweet Stamps challenge is to make a Flip Flop  card and I decided to make my own version of this card.
So here we go:
Circled Flip Flop  card
Step 1: Cut a piece of a basic cardstock into 5.75*6.25 ''
Step 2: Make pencil lines on the back of your card as shown: the first one is 2.75'' from the edge and the second is 4.25'' from the edge; each one should be 1.25'' long.
 Then add same lines on the bottom part of your card, but make them 1.75'' long. Score all 4 lines and don't fold yet.
Step 3: Using any possible circle cutter cut the circle on the card front, but don't cut the upper and bottom piece in between scored lines. Now your basic card is done.
Step 4: Cut 2 circles a bit smaller then your partial main circle used any solid cardstock you want. I used Kraft one. Stamp your Butterfly Bookmark  stamp  on one of the circles, as this is a long vertical stamp make it partially on both circle sides. Use clear embossing ink and Red embossing powder and heat emboss it. Glue the stamped circle in the middle.

 Cut LOVE YOU die cut using Die Versions Everyday Complements  die from Kraft cardstock and glue it on the side, as this side will be seen  when your card is folded.
Step 5: Cover the card with  MME 6*6'' pad patterned paper as shown. Die cut die  border with Cherry Lynn Border Carnivale  die and glue it on the side.  Tie a green  ribbon as shown.
Cut Tropical Flourish  from CLD die and add it over the ribbon. Paint it with Olive Green,Citrus and Bright Yellow Creative Inspirations Paints.
Die cut a lot of flowers with Build a Flower #1  die, arrange 3 flowers using brads and glue them over the leaves. Paint them with Garnet CIP .
Step 6: Fold the left scored line back (mountain fold). Then fold the right scored line to the front. Now you can see Love you sentiment on the front.

Now open the card and you can see the whole butterflies  stamped image.

Enjoy your project!
 Now it's your turn! Come and play with Sweet Stamps monthly challenge: make swing card and enter it to our challenge to win!
