Swing-Out Fold Card

Here is the card flat...

And here it is with the front swung out!

Here is my Swing-Out Fold Card that I came up with. It lays flat to mail but then the small front square swings out to stand it up for displaying!
I used the You are Loved stamp set from the new 2011 Holiday Mini Catalog for the sentiment and the Simply Soft hostess set for the flowers. I used Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler ink for the flowers and sponged with Marina Mist for the background. The paper is Early Espresso and Very Vanilla.

You can see how I made this card below!

To make a 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" finished card, you will need a 5-1/2" x 10-1/4" piece of card stock to start. You are going to score the card at 3", 4-1/2", and 6". Then you are going to cut 3" from the bottom over to that 6" score line. That will give you the 3" square on the left and the 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" piece on the right.

Now you are going to put glue or tape on the first 3" x 1-1/2" section like shown. Fold over the left 3" square and stick it down to that.

Now your card should look like this when you stand it up! The swing piece folds in flat to fit in the envelope.

Check back soon to see the square card I did with this same fold!
