Swing Card

This is the "Swing" card template.

Here is the two-sided paper I used for my "Swing" card.

Place your template over cardstock, then score and cut where indicated.

Fold card back at left side.

Turn card around and fold in opposite direction.

This is what your card should look like.

This is a top view of the "Swing" card.

This is the reverse patterned side of the card.

You can cut a small square to cover the swing portion that matches the front (optional).

I applied adhesive to the back of my square overlay.

I put my cut-out on the patterned back side of the card.

I embossed the left side using Sizzix border flowers (in my Cuttlebug).

I also embossed the right side with another flower border.

I used a glitter gel pen (gold) to highlight the embossed blossoms.

I then put my card into the Cricut, using "center point" and inscribed the words "Happy Mother's Day" in green using my gel pen holder and the Mother's Day 2010 cartridge.

This is another view of the "Swing" card.

I used a green Sakura Glaze pen to fill in the words, and embellished the flowers with gold rhinestones and other pre-packaged die-cut flowers.

This is the completed (closed) view of the card.
This will get you started on making your own.

I hope you enjoyed making this card with me and that it will inspire you to make your own wonderful creations! ♥

Where did you get your gel pen holder, I have been to all the craft stores in Central Florida and they never heard of it?

Gel Pen holders are sold online (as craft stores do not inventory them - yet).
Try Custom Crops store at: http://www.customcrops.com/product_info.php?products_id=232186027

You can purchase the mini gel pens cheaper from Staples directly (as that's what is used in the holder) at: http://www.staples.com/Staples-MINI-Gel-Stick-Pens-Medium-Assorted-Dozen/product_635246

What a pretty card thanks for showing us. How did you do the embossing? I am looking for an embosser and want to make sure I get the best bang for my buck I am cheap.
