Gift of Cards (Part 5)

This is called a swing (or flip flop) card.  Again, it looks pretty complext, but it is quite easy to make. 

  • Purple shimmer paper 6 3/4 x 5 1/2
  • 2 pcs white cardstock 3 3/4 x 2 3/4
  • Pink shimmer paper
  • Red shimmer paper
  • Black cardstock
  • Black ink
  • Clear embossing powder
  • Heat gun
  • Popdots

Measure in 2 3/4" and then score down from 0 to 1 1/4 and 4 1/4 to 5 1/2.  Flip the base over and then repeat the first step.  Next turn the cardstock a quarter of a turn, measure in 1 1/4" and cut from 1" to the score line.  Lift up the cutting blade and cut from the score line again down to 5 1/2".  Again do this on both sides.  Adhere the white rectangles in the center of the cutout you have just made.  I cut the heart from the pink shimmer paper using Home Decor.  Using the blackout feature I cut the same heart from the red shimmer paper.  I cut the music notes from Hannah Montana out of the black cardstock.  I then inked the notes and sprinkled them with the clear embossing powder.  I melted the embossing powder with the heat gun and then reapplied the powder and heated three more times togive them a nice glossy sheen.  the hearts are attached to the front and the back of the rectangle with popdots.
