Amazing Life pop-up swing arm

Hi everyone! Today I am showing a card that I saw on some demonstrator websites. I thought I would try it out for myself.  I looked for one that I thought was the original but it is hard to figure out so I am going to credit Mitosu crafts because it was one I saw over and over again.  They had a super cute version that you can see here
I am using the Stitched Rectangle Framelits because, well because they are awesome and I love them.  When you purchase the framelits with the Amazing Life stamp set you get a 10% off discount.  The stamp set is really great, perfect for birthdays of course but also other occasions, weddings, showers, and more.  And it has a shamrock, so that makes me happy.
 Closed, the card looks like any other.....

... But as you open it, the swing arm pops out from behind the cake.
 Super cute.  Anyone would love to open this card,

I made a video, its kinda long, sorry.

Here are the die measurements that I used.

As I mention in the video, place an order in February (there's only one day left) and March and I will send you this cutting/scoring guide and card blank for this project so you can make some too!

  1. Real cut pop up... eye catching!!

  2. Thanks for your clear directions. If I didn't work ahead, I wouldn't have made 3 of the 4" strips wrong - then I finally watched as well as listened and voila! LOL. I kept cutting off the wrong portion (bottom). Made a guide with my shorthand notes to recreate it, now I can't wait to find some stamps and make a real swing card. Thanks again!!

  3. Thank you for easy-to-follow step-by-step
