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