Paula from More Than Cards demonstrates how to make a flip or swing style greeting card. The swing/flip card is made by cutting slits into the cardstock, then folding it at very specific measurements (Paula goes over these in detail in the video tutorial) What a cool cardmaking idea — definitely not your average Valentines Day or Christmas card!

Craft Supplies For This Card Project:
Family Photo(s) and Embellishments (Also shown in this video: The Nifty 50’s Cricut Cartridge and Pink By Design Jump and Jive Stamp Set) – You will attach these to the card when it is complete and can make a cute page layout.
Cardstock (The cardstock shown is Die Cuts With A View’s Green Stack collection made from 70% post-consumer recycled paper. It is acid-free and lignin-free so this card will last a lifetime.)
Cutting and Scoring Board and other basic cardmaking tools like a craft knife
Are you someone who says, "Oh me? No, I'm NOT crafty!"
Being "crafty" isn't reserved for people who create over the top crafts like you might see on sites like Pinterest. Nope. All it means is that you use your skills to customize your world in one way or another.
You DON'T have to be perfect to be crafty. In fact, some of the craftiest people I know love when a project takes its own direction and becomes something even better than they imagined.
Don't judge yourself. Don't be scared. Just GO FOR IT! You might be surprised at what you can create!
Love, Molly :)
