Honey Bee - Swing Tent Fold Card - Video Tutorial

Hi There! :o)

Today I have a great card design to share with you. I've used the Honey Bee stamp set and coordinating Detailed Bee dies to create an Interactive Fun Fold Card! It's called a Swing Tent Fold card.

The papers used are from the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series paper pack. This is one of the FREE items you can select with a qualifying purchase during our Sale-a-Bration promotion - full details can be found under the Current Promotions tab at the top of this Blog.

I discovered this style of card watching a Video from Sam Calcott - it's not a style I had come across before. I enjoyed creating this card so much that I've done several others too - I'll show you them in detail in my next Blog Post but you do get to see them in my Video :o)

This is the side view of the card. 

I added a panel on to the back of the card, so you can write a message.

Here is the Video ...


Note: If you use A4 as your standard sheet of card – follow the metric measurements (cms).

Thank you for a fantastic and easy to follow tutorial. I love the style of this card. I don't have the exact stamps or papers so I am creating a version of it using the bumblebee from Dragonfly Dreams. :-)
