Is there any other cartridges that have swing cards besides Artiste?

Do you have Plantin? There are open ended images that can be used for the half swing cards. If you put one left and one right (I think it's under shift for one or the other) and place about an inch apart you'll get a nice rectangle or circle swing card.

If you have Design Studio or a Gypsy you can use any image by designing off the mat...place an image half on and half off the mat. Do the same with the paper, hang the paper half on and half off the mat.

Would you think about posting a cut file of your swing card? Would help to see a live card in action. Thanks for showing this to me. I would have never thought to use Plantin School Book. BigGrin

Tabitha, unfortunately, the Plantin endcaps in CCR are corrupt. If you pull a half circle unto the mat, and try to cut it, you end up with strange cuts, the top half of the half circle will cut as just a single line. However, the bottom half cuts a wedge out.

I have tried to create in Design Studio and import into CCR and that does not help at all.

If you can have a gyspy or use Design Studio, I have a swing card file I can post.

Sorry about that.

Mary

Here's something fun you could try. The CCR file is attached to one of the posts. The card is not "perfect" so you will need to play with it, but it is a more sophisticated type of swing card, and it is using the free CCR craft room basics cart so anyone can make it. Look for the CCR file, not the gypsy file that was posted a couple posts from the top.
