Hi Stampers. For our Pals blog hop last week, I shared a swinging pendulum card made using the Birds & Branches bundle. (see that post HERE) In that post, I mentioned that I had done another swinging pendulum card using the Dragonfly Garden bundle. Here it is!

(Above is a 6 second video of it swinging. You can see a complete video of how the card was made on my Facebook Page HERE or an edited version will be on my YouTube channel soon.)

My swinging pendulum card starts with a Mossy Meadow card base, 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″. To hold my pendulum, I cut a small strip of Mossy Meadow CS, 1/2″ x 2″, scored at 1/2″, 1″ and 1-1/2″. The two middle pieces were glued together and the two outside flaps were adhered to either side of the inside of the card, at the top, over the score line. A small hole was punched in the part that is glued together and at the top of a 1/4″ x 4″ strip of Window Sheet.

The front of my swinging pendulum card is covered with a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Dandy Garden DSP and a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Basic White CS is adhered in the center of the card. In the center of the card front, I die cut a large circle, using the Layering Circles Dies and a ring was die cut using that circle and a slightly larger scalloped circle with Bumblebee CS. Using the Dragonfly Punch I punched a dragonfly from the Dandy Garden DSP and another from Mossy Meadow CS. The two were then attached to the strip of Window Sheet (one on either side) using mini glue dots. A brad was used to attached the top of the Window Sheet strip to the bracket at the top of the card.

The sentiment, from the Birds and Branches stamp set is stamped onto a 3/4″ x 4″ strip of Basic White CS using Merry Merlot ink. Linen Thread was wrapped around the right side and the Pick A Banner Punch was used to punch the left side. This strip was then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A blank 4″ x 5-1/4″ Basic White layer is adhered to the back of the card for a handwritten message.
