Let's Swing :-)

I have been meaning to use my Framelits to make a swing card (apparently sometimes known as a flip-flop card) for some time, and finally got around to it last weekend.  Turns out it's really, really easy, and pretty quick as well once you have the measurements.

I found this video on YouTube, with very clear instructions, and whipped this up.  Then, because it was looking a little bare and needed dressing up, I trimmed the ends with my Adorning Accents Edgelits and used the matching Adorning Accents Embossing Folders to add the embossed detail.

And the colours?  Well, yes, they are new :-)  What you see here are two of the new 2012-14 In Colors - Primrose Petals and Summer Starfruit.  Primrose Petals is a dusky pink, which works beautifully with navy blue (should have used it here...) and Summer Starfruit is a colour I would almost call chartreuse - a kind of greeny-yellow which is nicer than it sounds.

And if you look closely at the flower, you will see that the tips of the petals are a slightly darker pink - this is Raspberry Ripple, another new colour - not sure yet, but it might just be my favourite of the new 2012-14 batch :-)

Stamp(s): Button Buddies
Ink: Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple

 Cardstock: Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit, Whisper White
Other: Labels Collection Framelits, Adorning Accents Edgelits, Adorning Accents Embossing Folders, Simply Scored
