Fun Swing Card

Hello Stamping Friends,

Today I'm sharing with you a fun swing card.  These are a lot of fun to make and the recipient loves playing with the card.  You need some great Stampin' Up! framelits to make these work.  I used the labels framelits on this card. See below for some quick instructions.

The first picture is the card folded. It is the perfect size, it's exactly the size of the regular cards we make and fits inside one of the standard Stampin' Up! medium envelopes.

This second picture is the card open so you can see the backside of the swing part. Great spot to put your greeting and sign the card.

Just another view of the front with the left side pulled out a bit so you can see it from a different angle.
You can easily change out the design of the framelit and do this with any of the other awesome Stampin' Up! framelits and give your card a whole new look.
Steps to Make card:
1.Cut your base cardstock 7 1/2" x 4 1/4"
2. Score base at2 3/4" and 3 3/4"
3. Center framelit on the 2 3/4" score line
3. Line your clear plate up with the 2 3/4" score line. (You will not be cover the whole framelit, if you do you will cut out the entire shape and that's not what you want)
4. Run it through your big shot with only part of your framelit covered (up to the 2 3/4" score line)
5.Move your clear plate to cover from the 3 3/4" score line and over. The first part half of the framelit will not be covered with the clear plate)
6. Run through big shot.
7. Take off the framelit and you should have the two ends cut and the middle stillintact with the base.
8. Fold on score line to make a z fold type card
9. Stamp and embellish how you'd like
