Cricut Artiste Folded Swing Card

When I saw these fun swing cards on the Close to My Heart Cricut Artiste cartridge, I knew I had to try them out. 

Here's where they are located in the Artiste handbook:
Using paper from the CTMH Chantilly paper pack, I cut the card at 5-1/2".  It produces a card at the regular A2 size of 4-1/4"x 5-1/2".
The matching shape on the swing part can be found on the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge as seen below:
I cut the shape above twice at 2-1/2" in white and once in pink at 2-3/4"  I then stamped on one of the white pieces using the CTMH Perfect Fit Frames Set with the CTMH Honey inkpad, followed by the "celebrate" from the CTMH Perfect Fit Birthday Set using the CTMH Cotton Candy inkpad.

  3. I have made a swing card before. I have an E2 but don't use it as often as I should. Your projects do inspire me to use my machine more often.

  7. I haven't tried the swing card yet, but it is something I want to try. I have wondered how to do it. I just recently got the Artiste cartridge, so with your directions I should be able to do it. Maybe I'll do one for Father's Day. I love your card with the Chantilly paper.

  14. Like the swing card and did not know it was on those cartridges which I have. I like the idea of how you stamped the vertical lines on the white die shape. I think you meant to mention you cut the die from Art Philo 4 times since 2 are on the swing part & 2 are on the inside. I'm going to give it a try and see if the swing die has the sizes you mention for the inside. I have made swing cards using a Sizzix die.

  31. I have made swing cards before using a die. I completely missed that the cartridge had these cuts on it. I am wondering if the scoring is obvious once it is cut?

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have made the swing cards from the cartridges!! in fact that was the main reason I bought them!!! ......I remember (pretty sure you were the one who had a print out of which ones from each cartridge fit which card an so on...) coarse that's how they get u to buy all the carts, lol

    ReplyDelete
  33. I have made swing cards but not from this cartridge. Didn't even know they were on there.
    But thanks .....I think I will get it out and make one tomorrow.
