You can extend the normal length of the back panel of the card so that it is long enough to fold over and tuck back under the flip-flop part, by cutting your cardstock slightly less than 5.5 inches tall. The length should remain the normal 8.5 inches of a regular card.
The slightly decreased height will enable to you to pull the cardstock through the die so the right hand edge of the card is actually sitting on top of the die and sticking out, as shown above. Run it through the Big Shot like normal, with the new Magnetic Platform, or with the Multipurpose Platform with all tabs closed.
When it comes out, you'll see how that extended panel did not get cut off by the die--but it perfectly scored and just the right length to fold over. Congratulations! You now have a flip-fold card that's much larger and has more interior writing space!
