Swing Card

So, through another blogger (sorry, don't remember who), I discovered that the CTMH Artiste Cricut cart has fancy swing cards on it.  While doing a search, I discovered THIS video.  I was incensed to discover that if I wanted to do layering of the shapes I'd have to order BOTH CTMH carts, the other one being Art Philosophy.  Not wanting to pay $99 apiece for them, I hit eBay, and got them for somewhat less, although still more than I will ordinarily pay for a cart.  But they each came with 3 coordinating stamp sets and 3 sheets of chipboard shapes.  And they really do have a lot of neat stuff on them.  But I absolutely LOVE how this swing card turned out.  I used SU retired DP, cut at 5.5" tall, and Whisper White.  Stamp set is retired SU Curvy Verses.  Butterflies are SU Sizzlits.  I backed the card with a 1/4 sheet of Basic Gray CS for some stability.   I think the rhinestones came from Hobby Lobby.

When you open it it looks like this--the sender can sign the inside without the writing showing.

There are several other shapes of these so you'll probably be seeing more of them over the next several days.  Hope you all got some crafting goodies for Christmas--my friend Chris got a Silhouette!  I am so jealous.  Have a wonderful day!
