Swing Card with Sizzix and Lawn Fawn

Today’s card is a fun and easy swing card using a Sizzix die and Lawn Fawn stamp.

First I started with a bright yellow cardstock for the base cut.  Using my Sizzix die this was easy to make.  I love that I can just run this die through my Big Shot and it cuts the card, adds all of the creases for the folds and cuts the shape that “swings” in the center all at once.

Next it was time to embellish.  I took a smaller piece of cardstock with bright stripes on it and placed it over just a portion of the die.

After that, I cut on the crease line

Now you can see the pieces after I cut down the crease line.

I adhered the larger portion of the striped paper to the left side of the card, and added the small strip to the far right for an accent.

Then I cut three pieces of ribbon and attached them to the circular portion of the card on the inside.  To hide the ends and where the tape was, I cut a circle out of a coordinating piece of blue cardstock and centered that inside of the circle shape of the card.

I stamped Happy Birthday on it and added some dots of Viva Decor for accent.

Now let’s finish the outside!  I used the same blue cardstock, but this time I added some embossed dots to the circle to give some texture.  I layered a giraffe that I cut and stamped with my Lawn Fawn stamps.  Since I cut him from a creamy yellow cardstock I simply stamped him in brown to add the details, and then colored in the spots . . . quick, easy and cute!

This is how the finish card looks when it is standing up . . . the inside view . . .

If you changed the inside sentiment, this could also be an adorable card for the arrival of a new baby.
