Patterned paper: Dotty for You by CTMH
Die: Nestabilities "Label #2"
I used the little pill stamp to create the patterned paper on the front of this card, stamped a  sentiment on the inside, and created a border  of  pill bottles.
The adorable Nursebot is featured on the flip section of the card, coloured with markers, and popped up with foam tape.

If you have a few spare moments, I've included instructions on how to make the flip-card.

Flip-card Tutorial
Flip cards are all the rage just now, and you don't need a special die to make them. You can use any framelit-style or nestability/dienamic die. The key is to cut only part of the die at a time. 

Step 1: Centre your die/cutting mat on the 1st score line
For my A2 card, I cut a piece of cardstock at 5-1/2" by 6-1/4"and scored it vertically at half the width of the finished card (in this case, at 2-1/8" for a 4-1/4" card), and again at 3-1/8"(1" away from the first score line). 
Then I placed my die centred on the first score line, and lined up the edge of the cutting pad at that line.
I actually measured and marked the centre of the die for accuracy, after wasting some paper just eye-balling it...



Step 2: Cutting mat lined up with 2nd score line


After running that through the machine, I carefully turned the cardstock 180 degrees without disturbing the paper & die (sticky notes can be useful to keep everything in place); the second cut is made with the cutting pad lined up with the second score line.
In these photos, ignore the shadow of the cutting pad--the edge really is lined up with the score line.






Step 3: fold on 2nd score line
Next, fold the card forward on the 3-1/8" score-line, being careful not to fold the die cut section.








Step 4: fold front back on 1st score line
Finally, flip back the front section of the card, folding on the 2-1/8" score line, again leaving the die-cut shape intact. You will want to cover the die-cut shape with another layer to hide the score lines. Pull the two sides of the card apart, and your die-cut shape flips over, revealing a message or image on the inside!

Have fun creating!

  31. I love this card!! Thanks for the tutorial too. I will trying this out soon!!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving the nice comments. I enjoyed reading them!! Also, you asked if I liked Spectrum Noir Markers and if they compared to Copic Markers. I love the SN markers and I love Copics! The SN markers are just the best thing for the price!! Very comparable to Copics. You can also use them with Copics. And the SN fit perfectly in the Copic airbrush machine too. So if you already have a bit of investment in Copics you don't have to worry that you are wasting money you already have spent. I recomment SN completely. Good luck in my giveaway!! Stacy H-W http://scrapwithstacy.blogspot.com
