Trying something new

Swing z-fold card

Split Coast Stampers has the best tutorials and really is the NUMERO UNO stamping community.  They offer a variety of tutorials and challenges and help and chats….it’s just so much fun to scope on there.

So the daily challenge I chose this week was Monday’s Try a New Technique.  It’s called a Z fold card with a swing to it.  It was challenging and I don’t know how the Beate, the gal who does the tutorials got her cut out to be so smooth.  I was trimming and trimming again on those cut out edges.  It is a nice effect.  I put a smaller photo down in the bottom corner and if you click on the picture you will be able to see that better.

This card features Butterflies and Wisteria from MFP.

Thanks for looking.
