Color Dare 197 - Swing Card

For this week's Color Dare #197 challenge, I'm giving another sneak peek at a swap card I'm making for the upcoming CTMH convention.  This is my first try at making a swing card, from the Artiste Cricut Collection. The hardest part was cutting all the little strips for the front part of the card! Note: the Artiste Cricut set is retiring soon, you can still get your copy from my CTMH website while supplies last. 

And here's what it looks like opened up: 

Now about those strips for the front part....with this color challenge, we were limited to using Pacifica, Canary and White Daisy.  I had some of the Confetti Wishes paper in my stash, notice how there are purples in there and that the strips are on a diagonal?  That's where it got a bit challenging but if you turn the paper to cut off a triangle on a corner, then you can cut out straight line strips in the colors you need.  (And you never know when those purple strips that are left over will show up!) 

Card instructions: 
  • Cut these shapes from the Artiste Cricut Collection; card shape on page 53 at 5.5" and circles on page 48 at 1.75" & 2.5" in White Daisy, 2" circle in Pacifica, star circle from page 77 at 3.25" in Canary
  • Use stamp set D1560 - Holiday Tag Occasions for the title on the front; ink with Pacifica
  • Use the candle that is included with the Artiste stamp sets and ink on the card base with Canary and Pacifica
  • For the sentiment inside, use your favorite saying, I found one from a retired Operation Smile stamp set that worked nicely.
