Flip-Card Tutorial using partial die-cutting!

Hi Everyone,
Hussena here to share with you a tutorial on how to make a flip-card using your dies and Big Shot..It's a really very easy way to make some fast and interactive cards to get the 'WOW' factor from your friends and family..So first let's gather our supplies and you all will need the following to make these cards below.
                                                               
                                                   

Supplies needed for the tutorial :-
                                  
Big Shot Machine
Spellbinder's Nestabilities Label 4
Martha Stewart Scoring Board
Fiskars Sure Cut paper Trimmer
Cardstocks
Pattern paper of your choice ( I have used the Prima Zephyr Paper Pad.)
Distress inks(Totally optional)
                                                               

And now for the tutorial :-

I have written the steps in the pictures itself..I hope this makes it easier for you all to understand it.
  
Step 1- Take a piece of cardstock measuring 7 1/2 inches by 4 1/4 inches.                                                                                        

Step 2 - Fold it in a zig-zag pattern.                                            

Step 3 - Your card should look like this now.                                          
Step 4 - Now measure,cut and glue your pattern paper on to the front of your card.                                                     
Step 5 -Now place your die on the smaller side of the card with it's centre point aligning with the 2 3/4 inch scored line and stick it with either a Washi Tape or any repositionable glue.                                                
Step 6 -Now make your cutting sandwich for this you can refer our DT member Mallika's post on how to create a cutting sandwich for your dies...Place your acrylic plate only up to the 2 3/4 inch score line and run it through your Big Shot..This will allow you to only partially die-cut one end of your card which is required for the flipping mechanism.                                             
Step 7 -Now that you have cut one end ...Turn your card around and place your acrylic plate on the  3 3/4 inch score line and again partially die-cut it...Please take care to place your acrylic plates to the the required scored line...otherwise you will end up cutting up the entire piece.                 
Step 8 -After you have die-cut both the ends,your card will look like this below....Now, peel off the pattern paper from the die-cut ends...Don't worry if you mess up a bit..This will later on get covered up.                                        
Step 9 -Now using the same label die, die-cut  two pieces of cardstock....One plain and other colored....The plain one will be attached to the back side where as the colored one will be in the front of your card.                              
Step 10 -Attach the white cardstock on the front side and when you flip your card this will go on the back.                         
Step 11- Attach the colored cardstock on the back side as shown.                                                      
Step 12 -Once both the die-cuts are attached, this is how your card will look.                                          
Step 13 -As you can see,when the card is opened, the white die-cut piece comes in the front where you can write your message.                                
Step 14 -Once the card is closed, this is how it will look.                                              
Step 15 -Here are my sample cards before I have embellished them.
