Today I'm sharing my take on a Swing Easel Card. These cards are a lot of cutting and measuring but they're so worth it for the end result. The image I used on this card is Bundle Girl with a Snowdrop from Stamping Bella.
Bundle Girl with a Snowdrop CUT-IT-OUT Die
Ruler & pencil
Tag and Scalloped border Dies (optional)
For the card base cut a piece of card 10" x 5", score at 5" on the long side and fold in half.
On the inside of top of the card base, measure in from each side and mark at 1". Draw a line from each of the 1" marks to form a square.
Measure in 1-1/8" from each side and draw another square inside the first one.
On the outside square, cut along the side from the 1" pencil mark down to 2.25", and then from 2.75" to the end of the square. Repeat on the opposite side. Also cut on the inside square down to the same point on both sides.
On the top and bottom of the squares, cut the whole way across. At this point the only thing holding the 1/8" piece between the squares is the 0.5" section on each side.
Cut across the 1/8" pieces at 2.25" and 2.75" mark to remove them
Score each side of the card front 1.75", 2.25" and 2.75"
Mountain valley fold the scorelines so that the 2.25" is valley.
Cut a piece of patterned paper measuring 4 7/8" x 4 7/8". On the back of the paper, mark in 7/8" from all four sides with a pencil and then draw lines to connect them
Cut out the centre square with a craft knife.
Flatten out the card front and adhere the square over the front. Score again on the 1.75", 2.25" and 2.75" score lines and mountain valley fold again.
For the inside of the bottom, cut a piece of white card measuring 4 7/8" x 4 7/8" and a piece of paper measuring 4.75" x 4.75" and layer them on.
Fold the top of the card back over and this is how it should look. Set the card aside.
Stamp Bundle Girl with a Snowdrop onto white card and colour using your desired medium.
Cut out using the coordinating die, or fussy cut with a precision scissors.
Decorate the front of the card as desired, then adhere the Bundle Girl onto the centre panel. Cut a border the width of the card base. Using foam tape adhere the border onto the inside card base in front of the popped up front to hold it in place. Stamp the sentiment onto a piece of white card and adhere to the card front.
