Guest Designer for Crafting with Cristina - Swing Card

I am so honored to be chosen as a Guest Designer for Crafting with Cristina. She inspires so many of us with techniques and videos. I love all the scrapbooking layouts she makes. If you haven't found her blog yet. Check it out HERE.

For this project I was challenged to make an interactive card. At first I wasn't sure what that meant. So I searched online and I found this awesome card called the Swing Card. This wasn't my idea. Swing cards can be found online. I found a great video tutorial at Michelle's Rubber Room. You can check out her video & design, but I am also going to share a video of how I made my card. I was so excited to shoot a video because I haven't done one in a while. Sorry, I was trying a new angle for my camera and cut out a few things, but I still included the important details.

Thank you for checking out my project today & I hope you enjoy. This is such a fun card to make.
