My challenge is for you to make a SWING CARD.. It is quite easy once you get the hang of it.. and you will want to make more of these because they are so beautiful once you are finished.
This is one I made Using some Holly Jolly Cosmo Cricket Papers...oh I just love these.. and some stamps from Ippity's Season Of Joy.

I was going to do a photo tutorial but I wasn't just getting the explanation right so I will be posting the wonderful video that inspired me.. by the beautiful and talented Beate John's

Beate's Video Tutorial

Here are just some size points you will want to know.. will make it alot easier.

1. cardstock size 5 1/2" x 6 3/4"

2. line up your paper and score at 2 3/4" from 0 - 1 1/4 ..... and from 4 1/4 - 5 1/5

3. now line up and score at 4 " the same from 0-1 1/4... and from 4 1/4 - 5 1/2

4. Now move your cardstock back to 1 1/4" mark and cut
from 1 1/4 - 4 1/4

5. Now move your cardstock to 5 1/2" mark and cut the same from 1 1/4 - 4 1/4 .

6. Flip card over and cut from the first cutting mark to the first score line.. now do the same on the other sides.

7. now fold the first score line up and the second one down.. and you have your swing card.

8. Now it is time to just have fun and decorate it as you please.

Join the rest of the Design Team.. at the Unity Blog and make your way over to the Ippity blog. Remember to upload your creations in the right places on the SplitCoastStampers Unity Challenge Forum.. my challenge is USCWCMD14.

I can't wait to see what you all come up with!!

Have a great creative day.. I also want to make a shout out to my Dad.. today is his Birthday.

Happy Birthday Dad, Love you !!

Have a great one.

Hugs, Angie

Angie, your card is so beautiful! I love it! The colors, the images! I am so over doing Christmas cards, I made a birthday one! And let me tell you, this was challenging for me (my paper trimmer ruler is missing most of the measurements on the cutting piece!) Thanks for the challenge!
