Another Swing Card

Since I have my file for the swing card I designed saved in Silhouette Studio, it was very easy to make another one.  The patterned papers I used are free digital ones the I picked up from jessicasprague.com, when they had their five year anniversary celebration a little while back.  I love how they all coordinate, and I was able to use them with the print and cut feature in Studio.

For this tag, I decided to use clear cardstock instead of vellum.  I used the My Creative Time Fly Away with Me Dies to cut out the hot air balloon on white cardstock.  Then I stamped the balloon image from the Fly Away with Me Stamp Set onto three different patterned papers that I had printed from Studio and cut out the pieces I needed to paper piece the balloon.  The sentiment and the banner die cut are from the Fly Away with Me Sentiments stamp set.

Since I was using clear cardstock, I needed everything to line up perfectly on the back of the tag.  The hot air balloon die is not completely symmetrical, so I used the back side of the die cut this time.  It didn't line up perfectly, but once I paper pieced the basket part, you couldn't really tell.  The sentiment I used on this side is from My Creative Time's Many Greetings stamp set.
