Swing Card – Fun, Fun, Fun!!!


Original Post: May 2011

I created the template for the swing card, also know as the flip card, a while back but I wasn't able to finish the card till a few minutes ago. It’s another rush card that I need for Benjamin’s birthday party this Sunday. I don’t make kiddie cards that often  but after making Benjamin’s card, I’m so inspired to create more. My brother is actually having a big party to celebrate the first birthday of his first grandson, Dj, on the 24th so I’ll have another fun card in the making.

I’ve been wanting to use Margaret Wilburn’s ‘Springy-Thingy’ (just love the name J) and the Mickey Mouse on Benjamin’s card was perfect for it. What a fun thingy!!! Not only does Mickey Mouse spring out, it actually swings and jiggles like it were dancing.  I just can’t stop jiggling Mickey Mouse, LOL! For Margaret’s video tutorial on the ‘Springy-Thingy’: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9NCjIF8rps&feature=player_embedded

I  created 3 templates for the swing card, the basic square, oval and the semi-circle which I used for Benjamin’s card.  I had so much fun making this card and I’m sure you’ll love it, too.

Check out my other version, the Spin Card.

  20. Hi Gayle,

    I tried posting a comment on your blog several times and it wont let me:) Anyway, I wanted to say thank you for sharing these cards, they are so stinking cute! I have tried making these on my own by cutting them out by hand and it was a big pain in the butt. Needless to say, I would love to have the file. It would make them so much easier to do.

    Thank you in advance,
