Framelits Flip-its Square #2 Cards

The Stamps of Life is introducing another of the new Framelits Flip-its die sets today... this time it's the Square #2 set.
The previous Flip-it cards are thick, steel rule dies, and make a squarer shaped card, but these new Framelits Flip-its are wafer thin metal dies, and they make cards which are A2 (or A6 in the UK, ie. 4'' x 6'') when folded. They also come with loads of decorator dies, including ones which cut a handy, slightly smaller layer for the left and right-hand sides of the card. (In both my cards below, I just used the extra layers for the right-hand sides.) Also included are lots of smaller shapes too, such as the mini scalloped edged square, which I used on the insides of both cards here.

My 'thinking of you' card also uses the formalwords2stamp set, from The Stamps of Life, a Memory Box Bird cage, Marianne Collectables Bird covered with Glossy Accents, and Tim Holtz swirls.
The gorgeous papers are from My Mind's Eye 'Lost & Found - Oliver' 6x6 pad.
The heart is from Sizzix Owl #2, and I hand cut an extra layer round it. The ribbon is from Tim Holtz.

My 2nd card uses paper from Echo Park 'The Apothecary Emporium' 6x6 pad, and a Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers set.
The Framelets Flip-its set makes it so quick and easy to put together a card!!
