Wow your grandkids…

and anyone else. would love this card!!!  If you want to make a statement with your card, you gotta go big!   Instead of your standard sized 4.25 x 5.5 inch card, try a new fold.  I altered this swing card base so that there was room to sign your name or leave a small message.

Folded, this card measures 5 x 7 inches.  Plenty of room for embellishments!  I use Silver Glossy paper for the Robot.  Then paper pieced the red BASIS to add details to it and the rocket ship.

Papers from the BASIS line made a sturdy base for these “out of the box” cards.  I added these double sided sticky dots underneath the flap.  When the recipient gets this card, he can simply peel off the plastic and have a strong adhesive to keep the card standing up properly.

It’s all in the details, right?  This card for a customer’s grandson is sure to be a hit since he is a fan of space and StarWars. Spring Larch Glimmer paper is perfect for that moon. I embossed the cardstock first and then cut out the moon shape with a nestability die.

Papers Used:  Metallic Metallic, BASIS. Glossy, Glimmer
