Z fold card/Swing open card

I'm continuing to make Halloween cards for my friend's kids.  Even though Wild card at Online Card Classes is over, the urge to make a fun/interactive card stays with me.

I realized that I'm quite behind on making all the Halloween cards so I summoned the help of my trusty helper - Cricut! :)

I flipped through the images and decided to create something simple.  This card came together at no time at all:

When the card is closed:

That's easy peasy.  I used the Artiste cartridge to create the card base, and also the two circles for the stamped images to go on the flip part.  The circle covers up the sentiment "Happy Halloween and the bat, but the web and spider are peeking out.

Love that it's fun and easy to make! :)

The card is entering to

  1. Cute Halloween card Joyce, I love your design. Thank you for playing along with the Crafty Boots Halloween Challenge.


  2. I love swing cards but have never made one. You make it look so easy - I guess it is easy, just a trick on the eye. Love how you have the message behind the circle hidden until they open it up. Great card - thanks for joining our BBTB2 challenge - Halloween - this week.
