Have the Stampin Up Circle Thinlits die set and have made many cards with them:
The first three cards are cards as the die cuts them. The bottom two cards have the extended flap which is made by cutting your card stock longer and when opened that card looks like this:
The three cards that you cut as the die cuts them have no extra flap so I put the greeting on the back of the card. Here is the front, then opened, and then the back:
As you can see the die cuts curves into the card stock which allows the swing circle to move on the card when you open the card. Due to this you do not have a lot of space for your inside greeting. Decided to go through my Stampin Up stamp set binder and I came across the Spooks Galore stamp set from 1998 that I bought at a garage sale for $4.00. The stamp I used is the only word stamp in the set but as you can see it fits nicely on the back flap of my card.
Did not want the greeting on the printed zig zag card stock as you would be able to see it looking at the front of the card. This spider card and the turkey card both have a plastic circle in the center of the swing circle so you can see the printed card stock behind them. TFL and YOLO
