Strawberry Shaped Swinging Card

Sharing a fun interactive shaped card I made for my daughter's friend. I used Spellbinder ovals and a Sizzix framelit flower die to make this strawberry shaped card .
Shaped Card
The topmost flower shape swings away [attached via a flower brad] to reveal a little girl peeping from the flower shaped window
Shaped Card
The sentiment and leafy swirl are stamped and die cut and I attached the brad through the vine to help the flower shape swing. The letters are alpha beads strung on a glittery pipe stem cleaner.
Swinging Card
I used this paper rose tutorial to make the punchcraft flower
Swinging Card
The front of the card lifts up to reveal the little girl atop a strawberry! I stamped a flower on the reverse of the swinging panel  and you can see that through the window of the flower shaped card.

Here is the closeup of the punchcraft flowers embellishing the window of the flower shaped card.

This was a super easy card to make and earned a big wow from my little girl.

I made this very fast so no tutorial photos but its pretty easy to make. And cloudy skies are not letting me capture the true beauty of this card but do tell me how you like it.
