Swing Top Cards

What are Swing Top Cards?  Cards that instead of opening the normal way, the top swivels to reveal the sentiment on the bottom layer.  I guess I could have called them Swivel Top cards...but oh, well.  Swing Top it is.

Meet Calendar Girl.  Isn't she and her kitty sweet?  You can download her below.

I love the sweet kitty with the mouse.  I saw these Little Meow stamps on Fiki's (a.k.a. Bad Kitty) blog and started looking for them.  I found my set on ebay and it had to come from the UK.  There are three different sets of kitties made by DoCrafts.  I think the doily stamp on this one is really pretty.  Well, I can't find this set anywhere now.  Did I get the last one????

Both cards swing open on a brad.

I hole punched the plaid circle and just used a hole in the doily to connect them together with a brad.  Those pretty blue dots are made with Nuvo Crystal Drops.  

Tip:  The rosette is accented with a piece of washi tape.  Fun!

Here's the inside of the Calendar Girl card.  The sentiment is included in the download.

Dropbox seems to work differently for different people.  Either right click and save when image appears or click the download button in the top right corner.  If neither method works, email me and I'll send the files to you.

So glad you stopped by.  Have a  PURR-fectly, lovely day!


  1. These are sweet as can be. Good idea having them swivel open. And easy enough to do. I've hunted down stamps, punches etc too on ebay. A girl's gotta have what a girl's gotta have :-)

  2. So cute. Such a lovely idea for a card.
