Cricut Cut File - Swing Card


This cut file is created from the Cricut George and Basic Shapes cartridge. It has the card base, two inside mats (for center piece) and a smaller inside mat (for inside piece in the inside of the card).  The cut file can be found here:  Swing Card

***I have recently added this as a file for Plantin Schoolbook - you can get that version HERE***

This is the front of the card:
This is the inside of the card:

This is the back of the card when it is fully opened:
As you can see from the photos, the inside piece 'swings'.  When you cut the card base, you will have to add four score lines.  You can see the score lines in the photo above.  Once you have the score lines, you fold one score up and then the other score down (you can see this better in the middle picture).  If you have any issues or questions, just leave me a comment!
Paper and ribbon is from American Crafts, the flower was cut from George at 1 1/2" three times and embossed with the cuttlerbug (2 layers with the swiss dots and the top layer with Thank You).  I went over the embossing with my glitter pen.
