Double Swing Pop-Out Card using the Quarterette Dies

I love how these quarterette dies from Claritystamp work so well with a DL card to create a double swing pop-out card.  A little paper engineering can really give a 'Wow' effect.

Cut two pieces of kraft card to 19.8cm x 21cm (DL) and score them in half at 9.9cm. Draw a pencil line down the centre of the card front (outer). Using the third smallest nested picot square die cut two apertures from the centre of the card front (outer). The first one 1.5cm from the top and the second one 1cm below that.

Take the second card and score the right side in half, fold in a concertina shape.
Draw a light pencil mark down the centre of the left hand side, line the apertures up over the top and draw around the left halves of the aperture up to the pencil line. Cut the left hand side using a craft knife and ruler and score above and below along the pencil line. This creates the card inner.
Die cut two frames from a piece of stencil card using the third and fourth smallest nested picot dies, cut one of the mini panorama dies from the left over square of each one. Glue the frames around the apertures on the front of the card.
Line up the card inner and outer and glue the picture panels onto each flap on the card inner so that the frames and picture panels fit together when the card is closed.
Die cut the smallest nested luggage tag from stencil card. Stamp Happy Birthday using mini word chains in Sepia ink. Add a small brown brad through the hole before gluing the tag to the card front below the apertures.

Add the Maya Angelou quote verse and the wee couple in Versamark ink, heat embossed in detail white to the card inner before gluing the two sections together.
Ensure that the edges and corners of the front and back halves line up as well as the picture panels and aperture frames.
