I was challenged while talking to a friend last night to join the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog for their "Think Pink" challenge. The challenge is to honor one of their own DT members, Jacque, who has fought a valliant battle against breast cancer! So I accepted the challenge and got busy, coloring my image while my friend and I visited via Skype! That is so cool to be able to see the person in real time while you visit (waving to you Paola!)
I had also visited Norma Lee's blog to follow her tutorial on how to make an Easel card with a swing away panel. Her's are absolutely gorgeous and thanks Norma for posting the tutorial on your blog.
So here's what I came up with...
As you can see I had a bit of a tough time getting my card to stay tightly closed. Believe me, the edges all match up exactly! Here is the card propped open, and it looks just like a regular Easel card...
The next two pictures who you how the bottom panel swivels open to show another panel underneath.
Here is my card recipe:
