Today I want to show you a swing card I made using the adorable bunny from Mama Elephant’s Wish Upon a Star.
I used a cloud stencil and Victorian Velvet Distress Oxide to create the background. Then I cut two cloud edges and I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set in the same Distress Oxide.
I stamped the bunny from Mama Elephant’s “Wish Upon a Star”. I colored it using Kuretake Zig Markers.
I laminated an empty laminating pouch and cut a strip from it. I used the Crop-a-dile Corner Chomper to round the corners of the top of the DIY swing mechanism and used the standard single hole punch to create a hole. I adhered a MFT Spin & Slide Disc to the back of the inside panel, put the swing mechanism on it and glued a small cardstock piece to the back to keep the mechanism in place.
I adhered a penny to the bottom of the back of the bunny to give it more weight. This way the swing mechanism works better. Then, I adhered the bunny in the center to my strip of acetate. I used foam tape around the mechanism – making sure not to geht to close and adhered the cloud panel with the bunny. I also used foam tape to adhere the bottom panel.
That finishes off the swing card with the adorable bunny! I hope you like it!
Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
