Today’s handmade card has been created using Pollyanna Pickering World Wildlife Volume III dvd-rom from Creative Crafting World.
This card shape is called a swing card and this is the first one that I have made.
I also made a step by step video (my first video) only to find out at the end that I had forgot to click record.
As you can probably guess I am feeling quite stupid and upset with myself.
However I did remember to take step by step pictures for this tutorial.
Here is a tutorial on how I created this card.
World Wildlife Volume III Dvd-Rom
The Paper Boutique Sentiments Volume II Die Collection
Wet Glue / Double Sided Tape
From the dvd-rom choose and print off three pattern papers and an image sheet that includes a square image.
To make the card base, cut a piece from white card measuring 16 cms by 26 cms
Score and fold at 13 cms.
Next place a square die in the centre and run through a cutting machine.
Keep the square that is cut out as it will be used later.
Next cut a piece of black card measuring 15.5 cms by 12.5 cms.
Cut a piece from one of the papers measuring 15 cms by 12 cms.
Matt and layer together and attach to the inside of the card base.
Cut a piece of black card measuring 15.5 cms by 12.5 cms.
Cut a piece of white card measuring 15 cms by 12 cms.
Matt and layer together and attach to the back of the card base.
This makes a perfect place to write a message.
Cut two pieces from black card measuring 2 cms by 12 cms.
Cut two pieces from one of the papers measuring 1.5 cms by 11.5 cms.
Matt and layer together and attach to the front of the card base.
One across the top and one across the bottom.
Next using white card cut a piece measuring 18 cms by 13 cms.
Score at 6 cms and 12 cms.
Fold along each score line in a zig zag shape.
Cut three pieces from black card measuring 12.5 cms by 5.5 cms.
Cut three pieces from the papers measuring 12 cms by 5 cms.
Matt and layer together and attach to the white zig zag card.
Next fold and attach the zig zag card to the inside of the card base on the right.
Cut a square from black card measuring 9.5 cms by 9.5 cms.
Matt and layer this to the white square that was created from the card base.
Then attach the square topper using foam pads.
Add double sided tape to the right half of the topper layer on the back.
Close the card base and attach the topper layer to the inside zig zag card, as if the square was going back on the front of the card base.
Using a sentiment die, cut the matt layer out of black card.
Cut the sentiment out of white card.
Matt and layer together and attach to the left corner of the topper using a small foam pad.
The sentiment will work as a stopper when opening the card up.
