Make the Cut Freebie

I've been drooling over the new Sizzix Flip dies because I'm lazy and math challenged.  The side of my brain that deals with numbers goes numb all the time while my creative side is always looking for a better way of life without numbers.  I started this file as a square flip card which was really easy to do, went on to a circle flip card which was much harder for me.  And then I had a brain fart.  Penny Duncan (my hero) has the very best shaplies files (nested shapes you can cut on your die cut machine).  I searched my hard drive for my Penny Duncan hiding place and found this beautiful shape and used it for a flip/swing (video from card.  I used Make the Cut to create it and my Cameo to cut it.  I purposely left this card undecorated and cut it from double sided paper so you could see the beautiful shape.  Kudos to Penny for that.  I'm kind of addicted to flip cards so will be making more of them.  Please let me know if you want me to put them on my blog for you and if you have suggestions, please let me know.  This will make a standard 4.25" x 5.5" card, but I plan to branch out to other sizes, too.  I'd love to see what you do with it if you download it.


  1. Thanks for the lovely file.
