Karen's Doodles Challenge 3 - Fancy Folds

Our challenge this week over at Karen's Doodles Challenge blog is to make a card with some Fancy Folds, not your traditional square or rectangular card.  I chose to make a Swing (or Flip Flop) card.  You can find a great tutorial on Split Coast Stampers.

This is what the card looks like standing up for display.  The panel in the center with the image swings when the card is closed.  I combined these 2 great Karen's Doodles images, Turtle Bunny and Easter Puppy in Adobe Photoshop Elements, then printed them on Cryogen Paper.  Copics used:
Turtle - YG21, YG23, TG25, RV42
Shell - YG91, YG95, YG25
Eye - B14
Bunny ears & tail - B000
Puppy - E41, R20
Eyes - E97
Eggs - B000, BV11, G12, RV42, Y13, YR12
Grass - G40
Flowers - RV42, Y13, G21

The cute thing about this card is it lays flat in the envelope.  Then when opened the center panel swings to reveal the image on the opposite side.   In this pic the card is closed as if in an envelope.    The sentiment is computer generated with Bassett font.  The DP is Imaginesce.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.
