I’ve been trying to think how to make a Slim line pivot panel card, and this is what I came up with, along the way I figured out a few things, I had a happy accident that I didn’t even realize until I started decorating, and I also used a helpful hint. This card was also made for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge which is to create a card using Purple 💜 and or green 💚, I choose to use both and this is what I came up with.
All the fun is in the reveal, to see this card in action please check out my FACEBOOK page, feel free to join if you would like to share your own crafty creations. You can also see a video of this card on my INSTAGRAM page.

The cardstock used is Elegant Eggplant from Stampin Up, the paper is from stash. I know one of the papers looks yellow, it’s actually a green, the lighting in my Craftroom sucks.
When closing the flaps on the front, they are fairly long and over lap each other when the card is closed. I did plan it that way.
I wanted full coverage so I covered the front, inside, and back with the patterned paper. I got it from my stash, possibly Costco.
The dieset used is the Heart Pivot Panels from Karen Burniston. For better assembly directions please check out Karen’s VIDEO, she does a single pivot panel, for this card you would do the same thing just one side at a time. Now for the Happy Accident………
I learned that the pivot panels NEED to be spaced apart, or…….. the card won’t be able to close.
The shapes that have been diecut are the hearts from this Heart Pivot Panel die set, as well as the Happy Valentine’s Day , the Love Charms, and the Word Set 9- Love dies sets, all from Karen Burniston.
The hearts are just stacking hearts from my stash.
The rectangles are just stacking rectangles from my stash.
Now to decorate 😀, here’s a helpful hint.
I decided I wanted this card to stay shut so I added a magnet closure.
