Ready To Swing?
These are pictures of a swing card that I made for a swap that I was in. I took some different pictures so you could get the idea of what a swing card is and maybe even how it works. I really enjoyed making these and it isn't too difficult to do! I may have to try and put the directions on my blog one of these days. I like it, too, because the size is the same as a regular card and will fit inside the envelope very easily! When I first made this card I had used the Ivory narrow organdy ribbon. Well, Stampin' Up! no longer sells organdy ribbon wide or narrow any longer. So, I purchased some of our new taffeta ribbon and OOOOOHHH! I do love that new taffeta ribbon! It is so pretty!! I just can't wait to have all the beautiful new colors!!! I don't know if you can tell, but I did some piercing on the River Rock piece in front of the word kind (......kind). When you make this card you have to remember that the front panel (in this case the chocolate chip piece) will hide some of the main image so you have to "scoot" it over so it will show when the card is closed. I also sponged the River Rock piece. The main image is popped up and I added a few brads. Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
