Pop Out Swing Card using Panorama Die

I haven't made a pop-out swing card for ages, but when I got this set of panorama aperture dies to play with, I couldn't resist.  They are part of the weekend wow from Claritystamp currently being shown on Hochanda.
Using the fifth largest nested Picot square die, cut an aperture in the centre of the front of a 7” x 7” white card to create the outer card.
Take a second card and score the right side in half at 3.5”, fold in a concertina shape.Draw a light pencil mark down the centre of the left hand side, line the aperture up over the top and draw around the left half of the aperture up to the pencil line.
Cut the left hand side using a craft knife and ruler and score above and below at 3.5”. This creates the card inner.
Lay the couple on a bench in the centre of the half cut square and run through a die cutting machine.
Cut a piece of Great Lakes paper to 10.4cm x 10.4cm. Add the outer section of a mini moon mask and dab white acrylic paint through it.
Glue the paper into place behind the die cut scene.
Use water colour pencils to add shading to the scene, blend out with a water brush.
Stamp the No Matter verse from the Special Day Sentiments set in Leaf Green Archival ink to the right of the centre fold of the card inner.
Add the couple on a bench from Wee Folk 1 in the same ink in the bottom right hand corner of the inner.
Add stamping to the card front: Congratulations (Mini Word Chains 11&12) top left, Amazing News (Mini Word Chains 9&10) bottom right and the corner stamp from the mixed media journal stamp set in the top right and bottom left corners of the aperture. Use Leaf Green Archival ink for all stamping.
To finish, glue the card inner and outer together as if for a pop-out card, ensuring the corners and edges line up and the picture swings freely through the aperture.
