Card Swap Group

It's time for the card swap group again and, this month, I have to send a card to Jane, who is the founder member of the group - no pressure then!!
I decided I would make a personalised card and it turned out nothing like the picture I had in my head. Jane has set us a challenge this month to 'use some DSP that you already have' - no problem there as I probably have enough DSP to paper the walls of my entire house :0)
Originally I was going to make 4 square windows backed with DSP to house the 4 letters so I cut out the 'J' and punched an aperture with my largest square punch to make sure it fitted, then carried on lining up my four punched apertures only to find that the other three letters are somewhat larger and didn't fit!! With my trusty trimmer I set to and made one rectangular aperture from the four squares allowing all the letters to be housed quite comfortably. (Sometimes I really do need to get my brain in gear before forging ahead with things). A few score lines were added before matting onto a Naturals Ivory card base using dimensionals. As I have rattled on for long enough today I won't go through the process of making the card I will just finish with a list of supplies used.
Early Espresso cardstock and DSP, Pool Party cardstock, 'A Little Greeting' sentiment stamp, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Typeset Alphabet Bigz die, small Scallop Circle punches and Basic Pearls.

  1. It really is an awesome card, Margaret, thankyou so much. I had no idea you'd gone to such lengths to make it, but it's much appreciated! I am very into colour schemes at the moment, and these two colours go together amazingly well, I'll definitely be using these myself.


Thank you for stopping by to leave me a comment. They make me happy!
