UR Delightful (Flip It Card)

NOTE: Playing a bit of catch up on posting my Simon cards here. I want to get everything I do in one place, so please humor me while I post all the videos and cards over the next few days. :)

For this card, I wanted to use the Sizzix Circle Flip It die to create a unique card…

Flip It cards are action cards, so you get to decorate different surfaces of the card…

It’s a fun way to change up the usual card idea. :)

After cutting the card base, I used a scallop circle die to create a window in the center circle of the card. For further instructions, be sure to watch the video below. :)

I also use the PB&J 6×6 pad from BasicGrey to add more color to the card. Enjoy!

  1. Are u kidding me? I was looking on you tube today for this sort of cards! So, good timing! Gonna watch right now! Thanks Kristina!

  2. Ok, saw the video, need that die!

  3. Love the video. Thanks!

  4. I love that die! Great “voice over” as well. :) Thanks for the video.

  5. Love it! I made a flip card like this with my silhouette cameo a couple of weeks ago. They’re so much fun. Also did the same technique with partial die cutting with framelit dies although it was more work that way.

  6. I love flip cards! So much fun.

  7. Hi Kristina,
    I wanted to take your stretch your supplies class, but couldn’t squeeze it in. Is it still possible to take it now?
    thanks a bunch!

  8. Totally cute! Love your paper color choices, Kristina!

  9. I found out from another craft site that today is Pioneer Day in UTah thus the fireworks!!!

    Great card by the way.

    • Yes, today is a holiday. However, this video is from right before July 4th. :) Just getting around to posting it now. :)

  10. With a little bit of planning, an Xacto knife and a scoring tool, you could do this w/o the special die. The circle is cut except for small connectors top and bottom and there is some scoring/folding that lines up with those connectors on the card but not through the circle. The technique would work for any symetrical shape. I love interactive cards like this! Thanks Kristina.

  11. Hi Kristina ~
    Thank you so much for sharing this great tutorial with us! You are AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. Can you use the sizzix with a cuttlebug? It says only specific machines, but just curious if it is possible.

  13. I absolutely love this card!!! Thank you for the video!

  14. I love this card! Well worth the extra time to make and you make everything so easy to understand!

  15. I love this circle card. Somewhere I have a template to make the square flip and I’ve done them with hand scoring and a craft knife. This looks so much easier. Oh, dear, do I NEED another thing to add to my crafting space?

  16. Great idea! I bought this die but every time I try to cut it cuts everything out. What cutting plates are you using with your big shot? Read somewhere that I might need a crease pad?

    Thanks!

  17. Wow! This is one of my ALL TIME faves and I have been a follower for several years now!
    The description of this die on the SSS site implies the die can’t be used with the Cuttlebug. Do you know if this is the case? Thanks :)

    • I don’t think it can because it’s a Bigz die, the thickest of the dies that Sizzix makes. I think it’s just a tad too thick to fit into a Cuttlebug.

      • Oh well :( Thanks so much for the reply!
