From My Heart swing card with Apothecary Accents Framelits


This Pumpkin Pie card uses the From The Heart stamp set with the Apothecary Accents Framelits to make a swing card. You're looking at the front of it. The card itself measures 4-1/4" x 7-1/4" with score lines at 2-3/4" and 3-3/4".



On the back side is this cute blimp from the Moving Forward stamp set. I'm hosting a class with this stamp set on July 3 at 11 a.m., though I need to know by the end of today if you want to attend. Click on the Classes tab above for details. Two bucks from the sale of this set go to Ronald McDonald House Charities.

So the trick to this swing card? Line up the end of the Apothecary Accent Framelit on the end of the 2-3/4" scored side of the pumpkin piece. Set the top cutting pad so the edge is at the 2-3/4" score line and run through the big shot. Then without picking up the framelit, turn the pumpkin piece 180 degrees and line up the end of the cutting pad on the 3-3/4" score line and run through again. The framelit will only cut through the card stock with the cutting pad on top. Stamp your images and use the same framelit to cut them out, then adhere them to each side of the swinging pumpkin piece.

This card was the third of three technique cards made for a class last Thursday.
