Here is the tutorial I promised for the Circle Flip card! I received a card like this in a swap a number of years ago. I adored the card and so I had to deconstruct it to figure out how to make it.
I've got lots of pictures for you and step by step instructions. I hope you enjoy it!
Lay the card stock down so that the 11" sides are horizontal. In the top left hand section of the card stock use a pencil and mark the center of that quarter. The mark should be down 2 1/8" and across 2 3/4'.
Take the largest circle from the Standard Circle Small set of Nestabilities. It measures close to 3 1/2" in diameter. Using the mark you just created as a guide, center the circle in the top left had section. Secure the die in place using small pieces of tape placed on the inside of the circle.
Once you have cut out the circle, lay the card stock down flat. Depending on your die cut machine you may get a circle imprint on the right hand side of the card stock from the die. Don't worry if you get this, it won't affect the card.
On the right hand side of the card stock, using a ruler and a pencil, draw a line 1/2" over from the 5 1/2" score line and another 1/2" from the end of the paper. If you are measuring from the left hand side of the paper these lines would be drawn at 6" and 10 1/2".
Using a hobby blade cut out the top half off the circle. Use the precut circle as a guide for cutting along the curve. You may use a paper cutter to cut along the straight line. Your paper should now look like this.
Use a ruler and a hobby blade, or a paper cutter, and cut along the two vertical line you drew. You only want to cut the lines in between the two horizontal lines that you drew. Each cut will be 4" long.
At this point, I like to fold the card in half and fold along all the score lines. I do this to make sure everything lines up properly. It just seems to make it easier once you are ready to adhere it.
On my card I added a second soccer ball behind this circle. This is an extra step that you don't need to do but I think it adds that extra touch!
You can now decorate your card as you wish.
I used the adorable new PI set, I Get A Kick Out of You. I added some grass using the Die-namics Fresh Grass die and a bit of sunshine using the Die-namics Sunshine die. I used two Die-namics dies for the sentiment, the Die-namics Polka Dot Greeting die and one of the dies from the Die-namics Sweet Stack. I finished off the card with some Charcoal Twine!
