S is for Swing Card!

Swing cards used to be just for expert crafters.  Not anymore! With the Artiste Cricut, you have a card at the touch of a button.  In the past you had to measure, cut, measure some more and make internal cuts, stopping just so.  I had just watched a YouTube 10 minute tutorial a couple days before Artiste was released. I’m so glad I didn’t have to go to all that effort. 

This beautiful card was created by my upline Michele Rowley for our team meeting and project swap in September.  Check out her blog at

Want to see it in action?  Here’s a short clip so you can understand why it’s called a swing card.  It’s my first YouTube video and it’s all of 8 seconds!

This card is so simple to put together yet looks so elegant.
