A Swing Card

The Less is More Challenge this week is:


Things that Move
This could be interpreted in a variety of ways...an actual moving component on your card, so a pop up, a shaker, a spinner, a charm, a tag... we could go on... 
On the other hand your card could have an image of something capable of movement, so the scope for that is almost infinitesimal!


Well that's an easy challenge thought I, but I do like to try and do something I haven't done before, so after a bit of thinking I decided to do a 'moving' card.

There are plenty of tutorials to be found on the internet & YouTube for various types of moving & slider cards but I settled on a "Swing" (or Flip) card ...

(photos don't show the true colour of red - it's actually a darker shade IRL)
Base is white linen card
Red Stampin Up card, embossed with Victorian Fleur EF
Inkadinkado inchie, inked in red, clear embossed with a touch of stickles
Sentiment was a freebie with a magazine

Thank you all for paying me a visit.
Have a great week everyone.

Brilliant idea, love the dandelion stamp. I can never get the folds 'square' on these cards, so they never stand up!
