A Never-Ending Card

I've just posted pictures of a swing/flip card and a tri-fold card that I recently made.  While surfing around that day, I found tutorials on how to make a never-ending card.  What a wonderful thing to give to someone.  And really, it's so easy to do.  So, here is a little video I made with my phone, the quality isn't all the great, but gosh, what fun is it if you can't see this card open?  I do have still photographs of this card but haven't uploaded them yet.  I just was eager to share.

A Swing Card

Along with finding the instructions to creating a tri-fold card the other day while surfing around, I found instructions on how to create a swing card. Here are some pictures of my first swing card:


Okay, so I called this one both a "Flip" card and a "Swing" card; same thing.  I thought it was so very cool the way the inside block turned around as I pulled on the card.  I am easily amused  :)  The stamps and papers are from my stash.  

I've actually started keeping track of what kind of paper I buy so I can share.  Who knows, someday someone might really want to know.  :)



A Tri-Fold Card

I love surfing You Tube and card blogs.  The other day I came across a tutorial on how to create a tri-fold card and knew I had to make one; I enjoyed it bunches.  Actually I watched several videos and read several tutorials before I went into the craft room to create this one:
