How to Make an Easy Swing Card
For years, I have been asked if there is any easier way to make a swing card. And starting today, there finally is!
These are NOT in the Holiday Catalog! New Thinlits! These bad boys are more than awesome! And to be 100% honest, I have only played with them, I do not have them YET. (These were not something that demonstrators could pre-order.)
So that means that everyone that wants them, demonstrators included, will be ordering them… starting today.
They are more than awesome, as they cut, they score, and you have an amazing card base in one run through the Big Shot. Each set comes with different pieces as well. At the bottom of this post are some of my favorite tips for you on this!
You might even write a song about these – yes, they are that wonderful!
The Circle Card Thinlits come in a set of 10. The card base is 6″ x 5-1/2″, finished it is 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.
The Label Card Thinlits come in a set of 9. The card base is 6″ x 5-1/2″, finished it is 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.
Ready for my best tips?
1. If you want these, don't wait to order these. I predict that these will be similar to the Magnetic Platform. They will sell out FAST and then sit on back order for months, and I do not want that for you. (Those that know me on this blog, know that it is very, very, very rare for me to say something like this.)
2. Use 12″ x 12″ card stock. With one piece of 8-1/2″ x 11″ card stock, you can only cut out 2 from each sheet. With 12″ x 12″, you can get four. Much more economical for you.
3. If you are a lucky person that has the Magnetic Platform, use it. Especially if you want to use more than Thinlit/Framelit at a time, which I will be showing you as soon as my order for these arrives.
4. When you order these, double check and make sure that my name, Megan Daves, is in the upper right hand corner, throughout your entire order. Guess what your thank you card this month will be using!!!
Here are the quick links for each:
I hope that you have liked the tips and that you had a long sigh of relief that there is FINALLY an easy way to make these swing cards!
