Revolving door

This card was a first for me. During last weekend's mini VSN, my friend Stacey/Little Lou's challenged us to make a swing or flip-flop card. The VSN theme is Viva Las Vegas, and there are lots of revolving doors there! I had never made one of these cards before, and the SCS tutorial wouldn't quite work for me, because my paper cutter is a rotary blade, making it hard to make the precision cuts needed for the center. So I modified the tutorial and used my Creative Memories oval cutters instead.
I added a layer of patterned paper to each side, along with some Primas and ribbons for embellishment. Overall, I was pretty happy with the finished product. I might've putzed with it some more, but those VSN time limits forced me to stop after 45 minutes!
Supplies:
Stamps: Upsy daisy
Ink: certainly celery, night of navy
Paper: vanilla, celery, Basic Grey two scoops
Accessories: CM oval cutters, Primas, silver brads, ribbon
