Here’s one swingin’ card!

Well, today I made my first swing (AKA flip-flop) card. It was a challenge at Oriental Stamp Art and I like to try something new now and then. Here is what the card looks like when it is folded, it would come out of a standard A4 envelope like this:

And here it is open, the lovely ATC frame is from this set by About Art Accents, I love the set it is from, there are 9 ATC frames and I use them a lot for scrapbooking, don’t forget to use my coupon code: Lindsay10% when you order to save 10% off your total price!

But wait! There’s more, the center panel flips around to reveal this, again, beautiful stamps from About Art Accents:

 

Here is a video to show how I made it:

Here is the template I promised in the video:

 

Here are the supplies I used but feel free to use a ruler and a craft knife if you don’t have a paper trimmer like the one I used, both ways will work. I want to experiment with making shaped windows. You can alter the template bu making the inner flipper a different size (just change the margins where you cut) or you can even off set the window, experiment! If you do try it leave me a link in the comment section so I can check it out too!

Have a great weekend ant til next time happy crafting!
