  2. If you want to start building the card from scratch, follow the instructions below to use our Fantastic Flips content.

This project makes one Flip card that measures 5” x 7” with an accompanying envelope.

Size card and envelope at the same time, increasing the height to 11.85. Since the envelope is in 2 pieces, you will be able to cut the project on a regular 12″ mat.

  1. Print then cut, cut and draw

In Design Space®, print then cut, draw, score and cut images from card stock.

Follow the directions on Cricut Design Space to cut and draw the materials.

  1. Assemble

Weed the cutout images with the weeding tool.

  1. Adhere the embellishments to the card with foam adhesive. Assemble the envelope with double sided adhesive.

That is beautiful in the making Cricut style!

Of course I am thinking of all of you as we prepare for HSN this weekend. On Monday, we will be posting your shopping list for all of the items in our shows on Tuesday. Until then, we are counting down the last few days until Craft Day.

Have a lovely weekend!




  1. Connie Jenkins says:

    The item number for sentiment stamps with dies does not work. I’ve been able to order everything else I wanted except those. Please help. I don’t want to miss out on getting those.

  2. Judith J says:

    Congrats to Lou. I will also echo the sentiment others have; please please keep the hard boxes. They are great for storage. I know they cost more to make and ship but my experience with the soft packaging is that the product inside gets bent and messed. Thanks for the consideration. Looking forward to tomorrow, 🙂

  3. Lois N. says:

    Congratulations to Lou Marks!! Enjoy all your new products and may they give you many hours of pleasure and inspiration!
    I am looking forward to the Craft Show tomorrow and as always I know it will be filled with great surprises and creativity to whet our crafting appetites!
    Love, Lois N.

  4. Mewsmomtoo says:

    Sad to hear that the hard sided boxes are going. They protect everything in them from getting crushed & they stack beautifully. I can tell which one I want by the band. They are great to store finished cards in, esp since I have 5 cats & hair happens. In a pinch, I even used one as a litter box for kittens 🙂 I also use them for background for my Instagram photos. They even make crafting while sitting on the floor easy because I can lift items in & out, I have easy access & the items are corralled in one spot while I use the lid as my crafting surface. Whatever you put the new kits in, it won’t compare to your wonderful boxes.

  5. Mrs. A says:

    Less than 26 hours to May 9th. So ready. Just hope HSN makes items available at the start of the day as they did in March. I was six hours behind EST that day and it really made it possible to stay sane with the ordering.

    I hope the hard boxes stay around for card kits. My experiences with shipping is miserable with cartons falling apart, pilfering at my local UPS, missing items and invoices. The hard box in its own cardboard box has always arrived in great shape. Keeping all the elements together really helps make a useful kit. I will never toss the box out.

    Love the new masculine elements. All of my guyz are going to enjoy what’s coming.

    Have a great day at HSN, Anna. I love the spontaneous moments as well as the inspiration!

  6. Mary R. says:

    Congratulations Lou! I am excited about the shaker cards because they remind me of my youth! As always, Anna, I know you have made it easy for us to follow along.

  7. Gisela says:

    Congratulations Lou ! ….There will be a lot of shaking going on in your home, have fun
    creating with your winnings.

  8. Linda DeVries says:

    Congrats to Lou! I also treasure all the hard-sided card boxes. They are more protective and durable than folios. I will keep them forever. And I still buy and love lots of the storage boxes by Anna.

  9. DeeDee says:

    Ms. Anna and company, is the Minc product line by you done for good? Will there be other Minc toner printables available in the future on HSN? Looking forward to the 24-hour craft extravaganza on HSN this week. Hope to get a reply soon as I really love your printable images for Mincing.

  10. Madelyn Horn says:

    Anna I need to tell u this my niece show me how to scrape book but she was not into card making. One day I turn on HSN n there u were with ur card making kit so I order it I want to say thank you thank you everyone loves my cards I enjoy doing them I am a little disable if my husband is not home I am in the house alone but not really I have u with me making cards can’t wait until the 9th thank you again see u on the 9th

  11. Susan Thomas says:

    I am sooo disappointed I thought since it loaded in DS it would let me cut the card and it won’t.. I really have to find your flip card cartridge!

  12. Susan Thomas says:

    ohhhhhhhhh Anna I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE your flip cards! They are my absolute favorite card! I have your flip card kit and I bought all the additional kits for the cuddle bug but I just HAVE to have the cricut cartridge for flip cards! I haven’t been able to find it and it’s driving me crazy! LOL Thank you for THIS flip card! it’s 4 am but I’m making it NOW!

  13. SHELLEE says:

    Congrats Lou! Enjoy your prize! I wiould also like to add my 2 cents worth about the kit boxes. I too reuse them and would be sad if they were not used anymore. I also am not thrilled about the new way of sending the cartridges. One of the main reasons I went with Cricut in the first place was that I wasn’t tethered to the computer to use. I DO now also have an Air machine, but I use my legacy machine more frequently. Please don’t forget about those of us that like the legacy machines! See you on the 9th!

  14. Shari Shafii says:

    Congratulations to Lou!!

    Happy Friday Ms. Anna & totally terrific team!!

    I look forward to the shows Ms. Anna! I love to watch & learn! Makes sure you bring enough stock for us to buy! We hate for HSN to run out of your beautiful goodies! I’m sure it will all be a huge success!

    Love & hugs, Shari

  15. Annette Johnson says:

    Congrats to Lou enjoy your new products. So happy it is almost May 9…can’t wait to see what you have in store for us

  16. Margaret Lopresti says:

    Please do not stop using the hard boxes. I love them. I store my cards, extra embellishments and other things. I know they will not be damaged in the hard boxes.

  17. Marilyn Solis says:

    Please don’t stop using the wonderful boxes your card kits come in! I use them to store finished cards in & many other things. I was disappointed when last years Christmas kit did not come in its usual holiday box.

  18. Sharon Voge says:

    I agree with others in that I use my Anna boxes for storage so please don’t do away with all of them. Some things are great for a folio, but others need a box. I’m excited about the flip cartridge and dies that match the stamps.

  19. Lou Marks says:

    THANK YOU ANNA! ***……….
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I CAN’T STOP SHAKING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was already crying! You are the best ! and thanks so much to the Griffinites who
    were so kind to mention me on the blog !!!
    The nicest people on earth! Craft on! Lou

  20. SheliaP. says:

    Happy for you Lefty Lou!!! Fun times when the goodies arrive!!

    Anna, I just love your beautiful products.
    I too hope you’ll keep using the hard boxes.
    Looking forward to the 9th!

  21. Kathy M. says:

    Congrats Lou, you are one lucky crafter!!! Enjoy your new goodies a la Anna. Ms. Anna, have a safe trip to HSN. Imlooking forward to that shopping list and I will be glued to the TV.

  22. karen chester says:

    The sentiments and dies are already on HSN. I purchased them last night. I’m more of a hands on person. I love what you have done with the Curcut Air, but I already have two Curcuts that cut and one that colors. Who do I give them to if I wore to purchase one more?

  23. Susan Bernard says:

    Thank you, thank you, thank you Anna! I confess I have had this cartridge since it’s premiere and have only used print and cut to make some embellishments. I just could not figure out how to design an entire card. This link is perfect. I am going to do this tonight! Crazy Friday night for me! Congrats to Lou and I’ll be watching on the 9th!

  24. Lynn Ossolinski says:

    Nice review of products and a great tutorial video. May 9th will be exciting.

  25. Doreen says:

    So excited to see you next week and all your products but don’t know if I’ll be ordering. HSN has lost current shipment containing two auto ship items and I’m not sure if I’m willing to take a chance and have them do that again. I only hope you don’t sell out of those two while they conduct their research into it’s whereabouts. All I get is a refund if they do. Too many issues with HSN for me. Hope you’ll consider selling your beautiful products elsewhere.

  26. Mary Esser says:

    Congratulations to Lou.
    Anna thank you for the detail instruction to make the flip card. I bought the digital flip card but had not tried it yet. This will make it so much easier. Thank you.

  27. Grama Pei says:

    Woo-Hoo! Congrats to you, Lou! Is this Lefty Lou? YAYAY! What a fun win! You will surely enjoy this! Anna, I can just see my grandkids running around the house, shaking their cards… I really enjoyed your Cricut flip card video this morning! Cant wait for Tuesday The Boy’s BD cake will be baked a day early so I don’t have to miss a thing.

  28. hobo says:

    Unlike some other comments, I do not like the new way of delivering cartridges. I have a legacy machine with no money to upgrade. Guess that leaves me out.


    Hi Anna and Team,

    Sooooo looking forward to Tuesday. I am going to apologize to my checking account early. I know I will spend too much, but I love hamburgers and hotdogs so I should recover quickly.

    See you Tuesday. Can’t wait.

  30. Joanne Garratt says:

    I just love your work and designs. I’m totally gutted you no longer sell in the UK. I really miss watching you on our tv and being able to order all your beautiful goodies. I really love the matching stamps and dies. Please come back to the UK xx

  31. Dalyce Mangum says:

    Thank you for the tutorial.
    I can’t wait to see you next Tuesday.
    Already have my list ready!!!

  32. Kim griffin says:

    Oh Anna, you make such wonderful things, thanks for doing what you’re doing. Oh and I love the masculine theme this time. I was just wanting to make cards for the guys in our lives.

  33. Angel Cyr says:

    O.K. PEOPLE !!! … Make Sure You Do All Of Your Cooking, On Monday — So All You Have To Do Is ~~~ RUN TO THE KITCHEN … GRAB YOUR FOOD, AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE … AND DASH BACK TO THE T.V. WITHOUT MISSING A THING !!! Ha ! Ha !! Ha !!!

    Happy Shopping, Everyone !!! Angel

  34. Nancy Ostrander says:

    OUT OF THIS WORLD—-I really like this new way of handling cartridges. I hate the room the old cartridges take to store. I don’t have this Fantastic Flip Cards Digital Cartridge, but I need it. You don’t just make things I want, you make things I NEED!!!!

  35. Donna M. DeGraw says:

    Congratulation Lou. Wow Anna you did it again. What a beautiful card. I love the shaker card. I have made these from scratche and that is so fun. Thanks again. See you Monday Night and Tuesday.

  36. Lindar says:

    So happy for you, Lou! Enjoy your treasures!!!!

    Looking forward to May 9 and acquiring my own collection of treasures too.

  37. Carol Marincic says:

    I own Anna’s Fantastic Flip Card, but when I click on the URL it will not work for me. When I go to Make It from my canvas, I get a message for the Roses Print Mat – Exclusive item can not be purchased individually. HELP! What can I do to make this card?

  38. Linda Christiansen says:

    Yay for Lou!!! Enjoy your wonderful gifts!

    Anna, I’d like to add my request to the many others for you to keep the hard boxes with your products.
    I’m one of those that re-use them to store a variety of craft items (just add a pretty tag or label to the side visible on shelf).
    I have five of your embossing folder boxes and large set of grace rectangular storage boxes, but these “bonus” boxes with products are so useful as well!
    Please reconsider or …..
    at least separate the small & large card storage box set so we can buy them in twos at a lower price?! Organization & storage is important for enjoying our crafting but I’d rather spend my budget on your craft products & less on storage items.
    Thanks for all of your beautiful products & tutorials. So excited for next week!!! I’ve already ordered four items!
    Safe travels!

  39. Sherri says:

    Congrats Lucky Lou! I know you’ll enjoy Anna’s new beautiful goodies in the making!

  40. Lillie Keeton says:

    A question-since I have Chrome Windows 10, do I have to set different size to print? My card and envelope came out small. My new cartridge is on the waysince I have auto ship. Thanks

  41. Kathryn Bess says:

    All the best card making Lou…so happy for you…have a great start to a sparkling weekend.

  42. Yadyra Marrero says:

    With all these great items I don’t know what I am going to do on Tuesday. 1am is really early on a work day so probably will DVR and see this hour when I wake up. I hope whatever is shown during that hour doesn’t sell out. But I will be preking in throughout the day for the rest. I better pick up some over time. Lol

  47. Carol S says:

    I’m totally flipping over this new machine! I Would love to win this since my husband would flip if I purchased another….this would be my fourth…..Looking forward to the 9th!

They are adorable. What a great idea to have the word and frame cut out together. And, I would LOVE to win the new Cricut!
