flip card template

In my previous post, I made a flip card and I've been asked by a couple of folks to elaborate a bit on how I made it. Here's a version of the template that I went by. When folded, it is an A2 size card.

Start with a 6 3/4" by 5 1/2" piece of card stock as I've illustrated above. The solid lines are cut edges. The dotted lines are the folds. Essentially, there's a 1 1/4" border most of the way around a smaller 4" by 3" panel which is the part that flips when you open the card. The left fold is a mountain fold at 2 3/4" from the left edge and the one on the right is a valley fold 4" from the left edge--sorry, I meant to mark that on the template but forgot. I found it easiest to make the cuts using a ruler and a craft knife. I decorated both sides of the inside panel using the Thanks edge punch when I made the card in the previous post.

Sorry to be a little slow getting this posted. We've been in back-to-school mode here and are getting used to the change of pace.

  2. Thanks, Jay. I experimented a bit today and wasted some cardstock. I'll try it your way.
