I have been having a blast with Sizzix Framelits lately and want to show you some of the fun A2 Flip-its cards that I have done just recently. They are so easy! Seriously, the hardest part is picking out your paper. The rest is a cinch! Sizzix has made it so easy with the Framelits Die Sets. They include everything you need to create unique flip cards. I didn’t even use all of the pieces that came with the sets to make these cards, so there are lots of options available for other cards I have yet to create. I only have one issue with my cards and that is with the photos I took of them. Unfortunately, I didn’t notice until I downloaded them for this post that they are rather dark and I don’t have the ability to edit them on my work computer. :( So sorry about the lighting. I think all of us could use a few more sunny days for better lighting!
Two of these cards were made with the exact same pieces, just with different paper and what a difference paper makes! I used Graphic 45 paper for all of the cards and I love them all! They are listed below.
Sizzix designer Stephanie Barnard created the following video which explains how to use these dies in the Big Shot machine, but you can use them in most die cutting machines. Just use the same sandwich formula as your other wafer thin dies. If you’re not sure what that is, you may be able to find a how to video for using Framelits with your machine on our YouTube channel. Just click on the YouTube button in the upper right hand side of our website, then put in your search from there.

If you haven’t tried these babies yet, I really hope you will. Not only are they fun to make, but they are fun for the recipient to open! You can never be to old to enjoy getting a card that does something. Be sure to check out all of the different Framelits Flip-its dies on our website HERE!
