I recently shot a video for the Swing Card Tutorial. For my sample card I chose Flourishes Cherries and Peaches set. I stamped the bunch of cherries in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. The image was colored with Copic Markers (R24, R29, YR15, E25, E29, YG23, YG25, YG17, B000) and cut out.

A 2 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ piece of white cardstock was stitched to a red scalloped cardstock rectangle that had been cut with the Long Scallope Recangle Nestabilities. The cherries were attached to the left hand side of those rectangle layers with dimensionals.


The card base is a 5 1/2″ x 6 3/4″ piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock that had been scored and cut according to the tutorial. I cut Weathervane October Afternoon paper in 1 1/8″ x 5 3/8″, 1 1/8″ square and 1 1/8″ x 1 3/8″ pieces and sewed them to the layers in the card front. I taped the same pieces on the back (to hide the stitching…didn’t look perfect in the back).

The sentiment is from the same stamp set. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut with Petite Oval Nestabilities. The inside was colored with Copic Marker B000. Two Tres Jolie My Mind’s Eye buttons were attached to the top left with Scor-Tape to finish of the front.


For the back side of the swinging part I cut another rectangle scallop and white center piece and stitched them together. I stamped the small cherry image in the lower right corner and colored it with the same markers used for the big image.

Here is a video for the visual learner:
