BSS-6th Challenge/Inspiration - Hinged Card

Hi, and welcome in. Today is the Monday BSS Challenge/Inspiration Card. I do this for my local stamp store once a week and post it on their blog. Today's Challenge is to make a Hinged Card. If you have never done this before, you can get the tutorial on SCS Technique Lovers Challenge 222. It's a pretty simple little card, but something different. The base is 41/4x51/2, the bottom portion is 41/4x3, top half is 41/4x33/4 before punching border. You'll need one brad for
the hinge. Basically you glue the bottom portion to the base. Stamp message on base top portion. Punch border on top portion. Line up top portion with base and punch small hole
about 1/2 to 3/4 inches in from edge where top and bottom portions overlap. Insert brad so
top portion swings up. Decorate card as desired. Remember if you use an image, to only glue
half of it to top portion so it will swing freely. Add a panel to the back of the card slightly smaller than the card with sentiment. Hope you try this if you haven't already, it's a fun card project. The deer stamp is new for Christmas from Penny Black. The stamp on the back of the card is Inkadinkado. Have a great Monday. Until later...........
