Christmas Swing Card

Here's my project for the November 18th Cricut FANatics blog.  I am fascinated by the swing cards on the Artiste cartridge, guess I need to get moving and make some more of these so I can get them in the mail before Christmas....
Hey there, it’s Freda from CannCreate Designs, stopping by with a quick Christmas Card Project.  It seems that once people discovered the swing cards on the Artiste cartridge they are popping up everywhere.  The designs with the coordinating cuts make the swing card extremely easy to make.  I used my Imagine to print double sided paper from the Christmas Wish Cartridge for the card base.  Be sure to let your ink dry completely before flipping and printing the second side or you’ll have a beautifully printed mat and faded papers.

Step 1:  Cut the shapes listed at the end of this posting.
Step 2:  Score card and fold in half.  Score the front where indicated and fold back to reveal the cut swing shape.
Step 3:  Adhere the stamped 2 ½” white Shape 10 cut to the 2 ¾“ dark coordinating color.  (On the next card I will pop up the sentiment piece).  Attach this piece to the revealed window are of the front of the card.
Step 4:  Assemble the remaining 2 ¾“ shape 10,  2 ½” Shape 10, and 2” white stamped Shape 10.   Adhere to the center of the white doily.  (sorry for the blurry, the camera  just wouldn’t focus on this for some reason)
Step 5:  Open the card and align the sentiment/doily piece with the front sentiment  so that the inside sentiment won’t be seen when the card is closed.  I held them in place with tweezers while closing the card so the doily adheres in place to the back.
I thought the card needed a little bling so I added pearls to the front sentiment.
Thanks for looking and have a Happy Thanksgiving.  Freda
