Over the past year or so, I've been regularly participating in a fellow demonstrator's team swaps. They've been a great source of inspiration! They also keep me digging for creativity as well.
This is the swap I put together for this month:
I had a little bit of this adorable pet-themed Designer Series Paper, and wanted to use more of it before it retires the end of April.
And, at a recent team meeting our mystery stamping was this gatefold layout. So, perfect combination if you ask me!
Here are the measurement for this card:
Basic Black cardstock: 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", scored at 2-1/8" from both ends along the 8-1/2" side; scrap for 1-1/2" circle punch
Real Red cardstock: 2 pieces, 2-1/2" x 4"
Basic White cardstock: 4" x 5-1/4" for the inside; 2-1/2" x 1-1/2" scrap for the greeting
Playful Pets Designer Series Paper: 2 pieces, 1-7/8" x 5-1/4" (black & white print); 2 pieces, 2-1/4" x 3-3/4" (paw & heart print); 1 dog cut using the coordinating dies (dog print)
Here is the video that I put together showing how simple this card really is:
