Typewriter Swing Card

Posted by on March 17, 2012

I had a Fun Folds private card class this weekend. We made some great cards using the Simply Scored! It makes fun fold easier to do, and therefore more fun! One of the cards we made was a swing card using the Labels Framelits.

Stamps: You’re My Type
Ink: Early Espresso, Wild Wasabi
Paper: Wild Wasabi, Whisper White, Just Add Cake Designer Series Paper
Other: Simply Scored, Labels Collection Framelits, Big Shot

I put together a tutorial for the class, so they would be able to recreate the card. I have it here for you as well.

5 ½” x 8 ½” piece of cardstock for card base
1 7/8” x 5 ¼” piece of designer series paper
Two 3 ¼” x 4” pieces of cardstock for image
Labels Framelits
Big Shot

Score your card base at 2 1/8” and 4 ¼”

Fold it in half on the 4 ¼” score and then back at the 2 1/8” score.

Adhere your designer series paper to the outside small panel.

Place your Label Framelit so that it is half on the designer series paper. Make sure that ONLY this part is covered by the top cutting pad. This will allow you to cut out only half of the design. I use a Post-It note to help hold the Framelit in place.

Stamp two copies of your focal image.

Adhere these to both sides of the “swinging” portion of your card. And voila!!

Would you like a PDF version of this tutorial? You can download it for free here. I also make my tutorials available for Kindle or Nook. (Though it may be a few days before this one shows up.)
