New Flip Card Thinlet Dies

Have you seen those cards that flip?  as you pull the two sides apart there is a center element that flips so you can see the back side. They've been called flip cards, flip flop cards or swing cards. To make them you do some fancy partial scoring and partial cutting down the middle of the card.

Flip Cards have always been a bit tricky to create - but not anymore! Stampin'UP! has just released 2  amazing new Flip Card Thinlits Dies which cut and score to create the flip cards.  I got to see them in action at convention and you should have heard the crowd! They really are amazing.

This 2 minute video shows what I mean about the Flip Cards.

Katie's Class Calendar 
I was so excited when they demonstrated these Flip Card Dies at convention.  I just put in my order for the Flip Card dies today so you'll be seeing samples on the blog soon. If you attend the September Stamp-a-Stack on Sept 8th or 9th you'll get to play with them too.  Click here to see the events calendar and register now.
BONUS:  each dies cuts lots of other shapes 
that you can use to decorate the cards.
Are you as excited to try them as I am? You don't have to wait for the class.
