Heart Swing Card

Hello fellow KnK-ers!

After bringing you a Valentine’s Z-Fold card last year and a Valentine’s Suspension card the year before, I thought I’d continue with the kinetic card theme so this year I have a Swing card for you. This style of card has many names, you may know it as a Flip card or Flip-Flop card.

These are the Materials I used:

These are the Zing Settings I used:

  • Blade = Standard
  • Blade Height = 25 post-it notes
  • Offset = 0.30
  • Speed = 10
  • Force =  80 (110 for card base)
  • Passes = 1


Pic 1. Here are the elements found within your cut file:


Pic 2. Glue your heart shapes together and set aside to dry:


Pic 3. Adhere your patterned paper pieces around the front of your card base:


Pic 4. Your sentiment should be adhered to the front side of your card, it will become the back side of the heart when your card is closed:


Pic 5. Turn your card over and adhere your remaining heart piece:


Pic 6. Fold your card base along the perforations as shown below, the reverse of your heart now shows:


Pic 7. When your card is pulled open, the heart swings (or flips) around to reveal your sentiment:
