DIRCTIONS: 

  1. Score Cajun Craze CS at 4-1/4”. Score large piece of Very Vanilla CS along the 6” side at 2” x 4”. 
  2. Counting from smallest to largest use framelits 3, 4, & 5, to cut out CS as shown.
  3. Fold scored Very Vanilla CS in a “mountain/valley fold” (back and forth). Stamp sentiment in Soft Suede and leaves in varying colors. Stamp Vanilla square with single leaf.
  4. Use adhesive liberally on 1/3 of Vanilla since it will be stressed by pulling it open.
  5. With card closed, apply adhesive to Vanilla CS showing through square cutout. Place Mossy Meadow square on top. Adhere Delightful Dijon and Very Vanilla squares.
  6. Cut 2 leaves using framelits and adhere with dimensional. Add candy dots.
  7. Fold thread in 1/3s and tie knot. Adhere with glue dot  

TECHNIQUES:
Pop-out Swing Card
TIPS:

1.Since the card will be pulled on, use and adhesive stronger than snail.

2. As with all my mailed cards with embellishments, I will put a 4”x 5” piece of scrap card stock  in front of the card to protect it AND instructions as to opening the card.

I usually have a sheet of labels that say:

To protect embellishments.
Please discard.

 And I’ll add:
To open, pull green square to the left.

Or something along those lines!
