Pop Out Swing Card; CutCardStock

Oh how I love an easy fun fold card! This one was quick and actually pretty easy to create. I used Granny Smith green cardstock and Cougar Smooth White cardstock from CutCardStock and the green polka dot patterned paper from The Basics 8" paper pad from Hobby Lobby.

This card is featured at the CutCardStock blog.  Check out the blog for other projects! My recommendation is to watch the YouTube video because it may be easier to follow.

Once all the patterned pieces are adhered to their correct places, cut a shape out of the front of the card. I used a circle, but you can use any shape.

Adhere the right side of the accordion piece to the right side of the inside right side of the card. Adhere the tabs to the back side of left side of the accordion piece; then fold up the accordion, add adhesive to the front of the tabs and then close the card. Now the accordion is attached to the inside of the card!

When looking through the cut shape from the outside, adhere the decorated cut shape to the portion of the accordion that is showing through. This allows it to swing.

Cutting Dimensions:
Card Base: 5.5 x 8.5"; scored at 4.25"
Accordion Piece: 5.25 x 6"; scored at 2" & 4" on the 6" side
Tabs: Two .5 x 4"; scored at 2"

Pattern Paper Pieces:
Card Front: 4 x 5.25"
Strips for the Inside: Two 1.75 x 5.25"

Strip for Inside: 1.75 x 5.25

I also used white for the circle that swings out. This is the same size as the circle you cut from the card front.
