So here at Diecut Divas, September is all about New Things, so with that in mind here is another new technique to share with you .
Using the adorable Bugaboo Image Edward Present I have created a card called a Swing or Flip Flop Card.
so here is how you can create this card for yourself.
Starting with a a piece of card stock 5.5" x 7.5" measure across on the long edge 2 5/8" and score down 0" to 3/4" from the top and 5.5" to 4 3/4" up from the bottom. Then measure further until you reach 3 5/8" and again score down 0" to 3/4" from the top and 5.5" to 4 3/4" up from the bottom.
You should end up with card stock resembling the above.
If you are wanting to use pattern paper on your card - I would put it in place now before die-cutting; this way you will have nice clean borders where the swing section is. Remember to only use adhesive of your choice on the top and bottom and the outside edge of the pattern paper and line it up so you have a nice border from the score line.
I am using a Cuttlebug but it is the same theory with a Big Shot. line up your cutting plate edge with the first score line and run through.
Flip the card stock around and again line up the edge of the cutting plate edge with the second score line.
This allows you to create the shape with the section between the score lines uncut, and allows for the swing section.
Fold your score lines and add focal image and sentiment.
