Hi crafty friends! Today I am sharing with you an interactive pendulum card featuring adorable Lawn Fawn stamps! I hope it brings some happy spring vibes during these winter days!
Step 1: Stamp, color, and die cut images and "Hello" sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Yay, Kites! I used Copic markers to color in the images (squirrel: E70, E71, E74, R30; bird: BG10, BG11, BG13, YR21 R30; bunny: W1, R30). For the kites, I had a scrap of patterned paper and simply stamped the kite images onto that and die cut them out. Then I added white highlights to all images with a white gel pen.
Step 2: Cut out slimline card panels, one with scalloped edges and a smaller one with stitched details. Emboss the scalloped panel with a polka dot embossing folder.
Step 5: Adhere the grass, flowers, bunny, bird, smaller kites and sentiment.
Step 6: Assemble the pendulum mechanism for the larger kite with squirrel and be sure to test the pendulum action before continuing (ask me how I know!). For the full tutorial, please see Jennifer McGuire's video: https://youtu.be/uryL3EdVZO4
Step 7: Add a double layer of foam tape on the back of the front panel and adhere it to the scalloped panel.
Step 8: Glue the entire card front to the card base.
I hope this inspires you to try making a pendulum card! You can even modify this to have birthday balloons or hot air balloons swinging in the sky! Happy crafting!
