Christmas Flip Card

Welcome to my studio!  Recently at a meeting of my stamping club  we made a flip card presented by Cheryl.  She had precut and scored all the parts for  the card with a die specially made for this technique which I believe was from Stampin' Up.  I decided to make this style of card just using  SB circle dies and my Scor-pal instead of spending more money.  (DH will appreciate that?)
After a few trials on copy paper, I worked out the technique successfully and can also use other shape dies to create other designs.  This was not difficult at all and saved me about $20-30 which I spent online this morning.  My finished card is a Christmas card shown partly closed in above photo and  opened in  photo below.  I made this mostly with scraps and leftovers.

This is beautiful Theresa. It is always so rewarding to figure new things out. I have never created a card like this and want to give it a try.
