Swinging

No I haven't taken up a new hobby, the kind of swinging I'm talking about is done on this card I made I made this following the technique I learned from Jennifer McGuire. I get a regular email from her that has video tutorials on all kinds of neat ideas. So now I'm guessing you want to know where the swinging comes in. Well here you go. The top part of this card swings back and forth to reveal your message 
It swings to the right.
 if you wanted it to it could even swing all the way around. I made this card a rather odd size it's not your standard 4 and 1/4 by 5 and 1/2 or 5 by 7 card this one is made to fit in just a regular old envelope. I bought this cheap box at the dollar store 
It swings to the left.

i am impressed because sometime a card that has been in a drawer the envelope that came with it sticks together and then there is no envelope to fit. all cards should be made to fit regular. i am loving the swining part... HELLO back to you.

So cute and it's important for your cards to fit in the proper envelope. Well done. You're a great swinger.

Have a fabulous day, Ann. Big hug to you and lots of scritches to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

That's a great idea! I didn't realize what swinging card meant until you showed us! I've seen them in stores before!
