Elements of Style Swing Card

Today’s post is yet another card we made at the “Fancy Folds Card Class” the other night. It looks amazing in person and to the recipient because it’s so unusual.

To make this particular card, cut a piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock to 5-1/2” x 6-3/4”. Then using the Vintage Vogue Wheel, I stamped the whole piece on both sides with Rich Razzleberry ink. I really like the vintage look so I also sponged the edges pretty far in with the same color. To create the swing, score the card on the long side at 2-3/4” and 4”. Turn the card and cut from 1-3/8” to the first score line at the 4-1/4” mark. The cut it from the the score line to 5-3/8” on the same 4-1/4” mark. Turn the card around and repeat on the opposite side. Then with the long side at the top of your paper cutter, connect the cut lines on both sides. To create the “look”, fold the right side of the card to the front and then the left side of the card to the back. Remember to keep the rectangle in the middle in tact---do not fold it. It’s the part you decorate!pic

(uh, this chart is NOT to scale….hee hee)

I stamped a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock with images from the Elements of Style stamp set in Rich Razzleberry and Pretty in Pink. This piece was matted onto Pretty in Pink card stock and mounted onto the rectangle in the middle of the card. Repeat this on both sides so that when your card “swings” it is decorated!

Then, GO WILD! Tie a ribbon, add a brad – now it’s time for your creativity to take over. This card when finished is standard size and fits right into the normal card-size envelopes.

You can still take the “Fancy Folds” class on August 28 at the “Make Up Morning” class. Just let me know you want to attend. Cost is $10 and you’ll need your own personal paper trimmer, paper snips and adhesive.
