Flipping THX with extra panel

Time to Play with my Circle Thinlets Die!

I haven't taken the time to play with it lately, who knows why.  It really works out to be a great card to feature Designer Paper on, but After talking with another demo she was having problems with her cards tearing. I said "Tearing? how is that possible". She mentioned she was making her BASE out of Designer Paper. "Oh" I said, "it's not thick enough to withstand the constant motion". So here's your tip for today... Use card stock for your base when making Flip Cards and you won't have any concerns when your receiver constantly plays with these cards.

To Make this project you will need these papers.

Did you notice I have added an extra panel on the card to create even more movable parts? It's easy to create the extra flap when you initially run the thinlet die through your Big Shot machine.


What you will need to do is create additional length to the piece of card stock you run through the die. Cut a piece of Bermuda Bay card stock  8 1/2" x  almost 5 1/2" ...shortened it by 1/16"...this allows you to easily slip it under the die at one end. The longest end will hang over the thinlet die. When you run it through the Big Shot go over the end  of the die and this will make a score line for you on the card stock to then fold.

Now what about all those elements, let's take a look at what I used. I love that  Everything is included in the set.

Circle card Thinlits Die
Die cut the following...

Crushed Curry Scalloped Circle, Coastal Cabana THX and Banner,  2 Crushed Curry Stars, 2 Silver Glimmer paper stars ( sparkly side up).

Now the Eastern Elegance Designer Paper... (this paper is retiring)

Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper

Die cut 1 Heart , a Crushed Curry front panel  2" x 2", a front side panel 2 1/8" x 5 3/8". and an inside strip 3 1/2" x 3/4"

Last is the Whisper White inside panel to write your very special Thank You message , 5 3/8" x 2 3/8".

Use dimensionals to pop up the Scalloped Circle and the Crushed Curry Heart on the front. Finish with a small row of 5 Rhinestones...love that sparkle!
