Technique Tuesday: Pop Out Swing Card

A few weeks ago, I showed you a Pop Out Swing Card and promised a tutorial on how to make it. Here it is. I hope you enjoy trying out this easy fancy fold.

Thoughts and Prayers Pop Out Swing Macaron

Supplies (all Stampin’ Up!®):

Card base – 21cm x 14.8cm scored at 10.5cm (I used Mint Macaron)
Inside Layer – 13.8cm x 15cm (I used Whisper White)
Front Layers – 6.5cm x 6.5cm; 6cm x 6cm (I used Night of Navy and Whisper White)

Stamp Sets:
Thoughts & Prayers, Kinda Eclectic, Petite Petals, Awesomely Artistic

Melon Mambo, Mint Macaron, Night of Navy

Square Framelits, Petite Petals Punch, Rhinestones or Pearls, Multipurpose Liquid Glue


  1. Using Square Framelits or paper trimmer, cut a 3” / 7.5cm square from the top half of the card front. Centre it so that it is equidistant from the top and both sides.20150708_232452
  2. Decorate the Whisper White front layer and adhere it to the Night of Navy layer and then to the Mint Macaron layer.20150708_232506
  3. Check out the photo to see how the inside layer folds into three equal pieces. Decorate the Whisper White inside layer taking account of where these folds will be. Score the decorated layer at 5cm and 10cm. Fold the first score in a mountain fold and the second score into a valley fold.20150708_232642
  4. Fold the inside layer and add adhesive only to the back of the last panel. Adhere it to the inside of the card base so that it is equidistant from the top, bottom and right hand side.20150708_232810
  5. Close the card and add liquid glue to the part of the inside layer that can be seen through the window and attach the front panel.20150708_232917   20150708_232943
