The silhouette of this swinging girl brings back wonderful childhood memories. She is from the Silhouette Scenes Stamp Set, which you can see in my Product List below.

Today’s Step-by-Step Instructions:

Cut Just Jade Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, fold in the middle at 4 1/4″ to make your card base.

Trim Forever Greenery Designer Paper to 4″ X 5 1/4″, and use the Birds & More Die to cut the leafy circle in the middle. I positioned it a little toward the top, leaving room for the sentiment.


Cut regular weight, Whisper White Cardstock to 4″ X 5 1/4″. Place on the Stamparatus with the Designer Paper on top. This allows you to position the swinging girl. Press the stamp to the lid, remove the Designer Paper, ink the stamp with Memento Black Ink, and press to the white paper. This may only make sense if you are familiar with a Stamparatus. You can check it out in my Product List.


Glue the two papers together, leaving the leafy portion free. Then, use the second largest Stitched Rectangles Die for cutting, and glue to the card base. This gives a nice, finished border.


“Keep dreaming” is from the Silhouette Scenes Stamp Set. Stamp it in Just Jade Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with an Ornate Frames Die. Attach with four Mini Dimensionals. Doesn’t this make you want to swing?


I was inspired by TGIF.
