Hiya, today I have for you two videos in one. The first video shows you how to make a Swing Card and the second video shows the project that I made using the Swing Card Base I made. I am trying to build up a collection of ‘FUN-damental’ videos for you that over time will be a collection of videos showing all sorts of the basics, but I don’t want to leave it just there when I do these videos and so on those posts there will always be the second video showing a project using what was made in the first.

Now with all of these types of posts I want them to be things that you want to see and to try to make them as easy as I can so that they help both beginner crafters and seasoned ones. I have done a couple of these already and I will be popping them altogether in the ‘FUN-damentals’ section under my video flag if you want to see the rest. But for now here is todays first video How to make a Swing Card :-

So I hope you found that helpful but also fun and of course I would really love to hear if there is something you would like me to cover in the ‘FUN-damentals’ and it doesn’t just have to be card base shapes it could be any fundamental crafty issue that you would like to know about, just go to the ‘Message Me’ page and send me a request and in fact that goes for anything if you have a type of card you would like ideas for for e.g. just ask 🙂  But now lets get on to prettying up our Swing Card, here is my Tattered Lace Reindeer Swing Card :-

Now as always here are the photos of the finished card:

Well I hope you enjoyed that and you found it useful, as always I look forward to hearing you comments but for now hugs and have a great craft day,

  1. Amanda this card is so adorable! Thank you for sharing how you created this. I enjoyed both videos. I would however, Love to see you create the swing card using a whole square. I have square dies but not half dies. I would love to make this. If you can share a video or just simple photo directions I would appreciate it so much!!! Have a great day!

    • Yes of course I will my lovely 🙂 I intended to anyway because I figured most people would have whole dies but I had planned this when I was working with Tattered Lace so decided to go ahead and film it anyway – they had wanted me to demo the half dies and swing adapter. But then when I was researching it I saw how people were making it with whole dies too. There seemed to be a lot of measuring going on too so I was trying to make the first one I showed just simple, I figure worry about fiddling with measurements when the principle is understood. Anyway it won’t be til January now, I hope that is ok? But on the plus side it is December so as always I do extra video per week for you all. Hope you will enjoy them. Thanks for you lovely compliments and if you are reading this on an email do go over to the site cos I have christmas-fied it 🙂

  2. Adorable! I just love the little reindeer…so cute. I like they way you used non-traditional Christmas colors too. I’m totally fascinated by swing cards. It’s so nice that you showed how to make the base. Thanks so much!
