Flip Card

I have created a few Flip Cards recently, so I’ll show you the template here. It came out of the magazine CardMaker Presents: Fun Folds. It’s a variation on an S-fold card. The size of this card, when folded, comes out to a regular A2 size (4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″).

I think you can see where to score and where to cut based on this photo. I put in dimensions to help you figure out where to make the cuts and score lines. The card is symmetrical, so if I didn’t place a measurement somewhere, it’s mirrored from the other side.

Reference Notes:

  • Starting cardstock size is 5-1/2″ x 6-3/4″.
  • If you put your cardstock the long way as horizontal, you score at 2-3/4″ and 4″. If you are covering the center panel entirely, you COULD score the whole width of the card. If you leave borders like I do, you must make the score lines 1-1/4″ long from the edge.
  • You will need at least one layer along the short edges for stability. In the magazine where I got the template, they covered the entire panel (“C” shape), but adding just a strip is much easier.

Variations:

  • Rotate the card 90 degrees and open “up” instead of sideways.
  • Use your edge punch along the open sides of the center flip panel.
  • Change the dimensions for different sizes.
  • Use your Big Shot and Clear Scallop Square die. If you’re a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, check out Deb Valder’s video here (I’m not sure if you need to log in first). If I make my own sample, I’ll post and link at that time.

Have fun!
