Today I'm going to show you the most basic type of rocker card... just a single cut and you are done! The idea of the rocker card is to make a card that rocks from side to side when you stand it up by shaping the bottom edge. Once you understand this basic principle you can go on to make a much more involved card with shaped cardstock, embellishments, weighted ends or even moveable parts!
1. Start with a standard card blank, mine measures a little over 6" x 8" but you could use just about any size you like.
2. Fold the card piece in half as if you were making a regular card. Turn it to a landscape orientation (long ways) with the open edges facing you. With the card folded, use your favourite tool to cut a section from the opening edge of the card leaving an even curve.
3. When you stand your cut card blank on it's opening edges it should rock when touched.
