You're So Sweet!

Here is a sweet card for you to make. It is a pop out swing card and it is easier to make that it looks. The dimensions and directions are below. I've also included Julie Davidson's video to help you make this card. I added a tab on the side of the front panel to make it easier for the card to slide in and out. Give it a try!

   Stamps: Sprinkles of Life, You're So Sweet
   Ink: Cucumber Crush, Tip Top Taupe, Watermelon Wonder,
          Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
   Cardstock: Whisper White, Cucumber Crush, Watermelon Wonder,
           Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Red Glimmer
   Extras: Build a Tree punch, Square Framelits,
           Cherry on Top Washi tape, label punch,
           fast fuze adhesive or tear and tape adhesive.

General Dimensions:
Card base is 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" – I used Watermelon Wonder
Insert/Inside piece: 5" x 6", scored at 2" and 4" – This is on the 6" side.  I used Whisper White
Square piece is cut from the 3 1/4" Square framelit – I used Cucumber Crush
Stamped area: 3" x 3" square – I used Whisper White

Instructions for the card above:
·         Die cut the front of your Watermelon Wonder cardstock base with the 3 1/4" square framelit. 
·         Fold the 5" x 6" scored Whisper White cardstock so that you have 3 equal panels.  Open up and stamp your sentiment in the center panel.  Attach one side of this piece to the inside of your Watermelon Wonder card.
·         Stamp on the 3" square with sentiment stamp and Watermelon Wonder ink.  Layer onto the 3 1/4" Cucumber Crush cardstock and add to the other side of the Whisper White folded piece making sure the square fits the precut opening in the Watermelon Wonder card front. 
·         Stamp the Crumb Cake cardstock with the cupcake base and ice cream cone using Tip Top Taupe ink.  Cut out. 
·         Stamp the Whisper Whie cardstock with the cloud using Crumb Cake ink.  Also stamp the Watermelon Wonder cardstock scrap using the Watermelon Wonder ink and the Soft Suede scrap cardstock and the Early Espresso ink.  Punch out using the Build a Tree punch.  Layer these together and add to the inside of your card.  Add a glimmer cherry on top!
·         Add washi tape to the front of your card.  Assemble the cupcake and add to the front of your card.  Punch out a label from the Whisper White cardstock and add to the back of the 3 1/4" square.  This will help the card front from slipping into the back of the card.  You will understand when you get to this point!! 
·         Add glitter glue to the cupcake and the ice cream and allow to dry.  Have fun with this technique!

Happy Stamping!
