Swinging into Christmas

Can you believe its less than 4 weeks to Christmas? how scary is that?

Today was my “Christmas Cards with More” class and the ladies enjoyed making the cards which is always nice. One of the cards they made was this lovely Swing Card …

To create this card I used the faithful Season of Joy stamp set with a little help from Christmas Classics.

I followed the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers but found their sizes would not fit in our regular C6 envelopes so I went to resizing and converting to metric. After a few alterations I came up with a card and sizing I was happy with.

This card is called a Swing card due to the centre panel swinging around as you open the card.

Here’s the open card …

I love this card – its simple enough but a nice card to send to someone special.

Dont forget Season of Joy is part of the ‘Dress Up Christmas’ promotion where when you purchase Season of Joy and the So Swirly wheel you will receive a free roll of ribbon. If you’d like to order this or any other bundle please do not hesitate to contact me – this promotion finishes 30th November so be sure to contact me before Tuesday.

I hope you like this card and if you’d like to learn how to make this card please email or ring me to book in for the “2011 Movers Card Class” which will be held in January, 2011.

  1. Looks great.

  2. I loved making all the cards Leonie. Thanks so much for sharing these with us.

  3. What a delightful card Leonie. I have this in my Crypt-of-cards-to-get-around-to-making. However, given that it may require a bit of tweaking size wise…I may leave it for later. SOJ is such a FAB Chrissy set and I can’t see myself parting with it. You have done a beautifully festive job with this card.
