I cut an A2 cardbase, scored the top and bottom of the front panel in the middle just about an inch up on both sides. I connected those score marks with a pencil, then placed my die so that half of it would cut, the half towards the open side of the card front.
Then I cut some layers to match the swing opening cut, stamped some butterflies and embossed them in gold. Some gold balls (and they actually shine in the pic!) I added a sentiment to the inside also in gold. I layered patterned paper over my card base.
If I do this again...that step will have to come first. This card is going to my card-making swap friend in California.
Papers were freebies from a magazine, embossing power is Hero Arts, Dies are Lifestyle crafts, sentiment is Simon Says Stamp, butterfly image an dies are Hero Arts. Thanks for stopping by.

Love your swing card, Cat! A friend of mine cut some of those shapes for me with her Big Shot but I never know exactly how to use them. Hope you don't get rained out in Ohio!!!
Cat, what a LOVELY swing card you've created for your friend.
Great colors & design.
Very pretty! Love the butterfly and the papers!
This is gorgeous, Cat! I love the colours and stamp combo!
