I saw a card on Facebook a while back called a Swing Card and I had never seen one before so I decided to have a go at making one. I reached for the Hello Friend stamp set and as I can make most things by eye and don’t need measurements. It just takes a little time and a little experimenting to be able to work it out and I am pleased to say I did it!
It looks pretty standard from the front and I decided to simply use a piece of patterned paper for the front panel and add the large hello greeting from the hello friend stamp set which I heat embossed with silver embossing powder.
The magic happens with you pull open the card…
The card flips and spins open to reveal the inside. I stamped the beautiful wreath from the Hello Friend stamp set using the Baby Wipe Technique to get the foliage of the wreath varying colours of green. I added a ribbon bow and left room for a hand written message.
The little circle sentiment is also from Hello Friend and stop the middle section from spinning open too far.
Pretty cool technique huh? I don’t have an instructions or measurements as I made it by eye but if you google ‘swing card’ you should see various templates and tutorials.
Give it a try, it was fun to make although next time I would use the extra thick whisper white cardstock to make it a little more sturdy.
