Swing Card

Hello stampers, welcome to my little creative space, Mrs. Lincolns Inkin!!

Today's card is a Swing Card.  Now this card has been around for awhile but i just got to making one and let me tell you what, it was super fun to make!!!

Let's see if i can explain a bit on how to create this awesome Swing Card.  For my base i chose to use Crumb Cake.  This piece is cut at 5 1/2" x 11" and then scored at 4 1/4".  So it starts out as just your normal size card. Now you take the top flap of your card and fold that in half. Now to get your "swing" piece, above i chose to use my Framelit Dies, you want to position your die do that is half on the score line and half off.  Take the clear plate to your Big Shot and place it only to the score line.  You don't want to the die or the clear plate to be covering the entire piece of card stock because that will cause it to cut through the entire thing.

See in the above picture how the frame is only cut out on the one side? That is what we are going for.  So you only run your plates for your big shot half-way through.  Man i really hope that makes some sort of sense, lol. 

For my images i used the Apothecary Art set and the Word Play set.  Hurry, hurry though, the retiring list, which can be viewed here, is taking Word play away from us:(  Here is a closer look at this amazing stamp:

To add a bit more something to the inside of my card, partly because you can see the side of the card when it is closed, and to give it a finishing touch, i stamped the En Francis stamp on it and then shadowed Chocolate Chip around the edges of my entire card.

Well all, i hope my post wasn't too confusing today and i hope that you did enjoy.  Until next time...
