Inspired Stamps - Flip Card

I have a fun card to share for today's Inspired Stamps project.  I've seen quite a number of flip cards recently and dies which make the work easy to create these fun interactive cards.  I don't have the dies, but I managed to figure it out (after 2 failed attempts! LOL!).  I wish I had taken a video of how to make them, but I hope with the photos you'll have a good idea.

Note the Z fold of the base cardstock.
My card measures 5 x 5.5" when closed.  I used the Inspired Stamps set His Word, and stamped the Bible image on a piece of white cardstock cut using the same die as the centre panel.  The image was coloured with Copic Markers - Bible (E21, E11, E13, E15), Pencils (E000, C1, Y35, Y38), Pencil holder (G20, G21, G24), Notebook (R20, R22, R30).  The pink outline piece was cut with two sizes of the same die - I just lay both dies on the pink cardstock and pass them through the Big Shot.

The centre panel moves when the card is standing upright.
When you pull the left and right edges of the card, the centre panel flips to the other side which has the lamp and the verse from Psalms 119.

The lamp was coloured with the following markers - Candle (R20, R22, R30), Flame (Y35, Y38), Holder (RV13, RV14, RV17).   Here's how the card looks when it is opened flat:

For those of you who might be keen to try this, here's a sketch of how I cut the centre panel and folded the card.  The dotted lines are score lines and the bold lines are the cut lines.  You can use any shaped die to cut the centre panel, and the trick is to cut part of the die leaving a 1" section un-cut.
I hope you like this idea, and if you make one be sure to let me know - I'd love to see it.

What a fabulous card and I love your sentiment. What would we do without His word? We would be lost, right?

Thanks for sharing your creativity!
