Meeting Swap- Swing-Out Fold Card




I decided that for my swap card for my SU meeting this past weekend, that I would do my Swing-Out Fold Card. I saw this card and used it as inspiration for the stamping on mine! I used the Falling Leaves stamp set from the 2011 Holiday Mini Catalog to make this card and the Perfect Words hostess set for the sentiment.
I had to make 14 of these for swaps, and let me tell you, it took forever! I did simplify the cutting and scoring to make them, so here is how I did it below. This is probably a better way to make this if you are going to cut them for a class.
HERE is my other card like this if you want to see it.


Here is how I made this card!

First I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla card stock. I cut a frame out of another piece of scrap paper and placed it over my Vanilla piece. I stamped and sponged with the frame down, and then when its lifts, you have clean edges. I used Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard and Early Espresso ink,


I cut a 3" x 6-1/2" piece of Early Espresso card stock and scored it at 3", 4-1/2" and 6". Put glue on the middle 1-1/2" section and fold it over.


You will now have the piece on the left. Then put glue on the small 1/2" section like shown.


This will glue behind the 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" Espresso card base. Now you have your swing out arm that folds back to fit in the envelope!


Cut a 2-3/4" Vanilla square and stamp on it for the swing out section. Your card is finished!
