Make A Flip Fold Card

You can make a flip fold card using the FREE SVG cutting file in our Free Resource Library. This interactive, all-occasion card will be sure to Wow its recipient.

When the card is closed, you will see the front of the card with its frame around the back side of the flipped center piece. You can decorate this with the included lattice label piece. Or you can use one of the included frames, or solid label pieces as decorations. When the card is open, the center piece flips to the back, and you see the sentiment, or a stamped image you have added to that side. This is really a fun card!

Cutting the Card

Import the SVG file for the card into your cutter software. If using Cricut Design Space, be sure to select the score lines, and change the lines to be Scored rather than cut. Select the card base and the score lines, right click, and select Attach. If using Brother Scan N Cut, be sure to resize the entire selected design to 11.481″ wide x 11.099″ high before cutting. The finished folded card will be 5.5″ square.

Flip Fold Card Cutting Pieces

The paper that I used is printed only on one side. If you are using this or something similar, with a printed design only on one side, use the printed side for the inside of the card. Use the extra panel piece, shown above in light green,  to make the front of the card match the pattern on the inside of the card. Since the back of the paper is white, a white frame will remain on the front of the card, surrounding the flipped card image. Extra pieces are included for you to use as you prefer for decorating front or back pieces of the card design. Cut the pieces in colors of your choice. If you will be using stamped sentiments, add those to the panels before assembling.

Assembling the Flip Fold Card

Fold the base card on the score line, and crease with a bone folder. The score line on the left is a valley fold. The score line on the far right is a mountain fold. The remaining score line is a valley fold. Gently flip the center right label piece and fold it to the back. This part of the card will be facing up when the front part of the  card is closed over it. When you pull the right side of the card to the right, the center panel should flip, revealing the sentiment you have added there. Close the right edge of the card towards the center,  and that center piece should flip back to a decorated panel. If you decorated with the lattice piece, for example, then that lattice piece will be showing through the window on the front of the card when it is closed.

Open the card, and you should see the sentiment you added to the inside of the card instead of the lattice. If you didn’t add a sentiment, the printed pattern would be showing on this piece. Placing a solid colored panel here would make it easier to stamp a sentiment. You may also add a frame around the window on the left inside of the card.

Inside the Flip Fold Card

Glue the decorative panels you have chosen to the base card. There is room on the center panel for you to write a message. Or you can add additional  embellishments. These  will show only when the card is open.

Still not working? I promise the password works—I haven’t changed it since I opened the library.   Try the copy/paste method again and make sure the URL you are going to has https at the start of it (that’s a secure page and it makes a difference). If that still isn’t working, try a different web browser.
