This is an easy variation on a “standard” fold card, inspired from Ronda Wade’s swap card from convention. Swapping is a sport amongst Stampin’ Up! demonstrators – you make a whole bunch of one card design, and then trade with others! This was an “organized” swap, meaning we signed up and had to make a certain number of the same card (I think it was 45). Anyway – this is a regular sized card; the cardstock is cut lengthwise so it’s 4.25″ x 11″, and then scored at 5.5″ to fold. I then trimmed 2″ off the top of the front of the card and embossed that cut portion with the Modern Mosaic embossing folder. That piece was wrapped with a bit of Gold 5/8″ Satin Ribbon and adhered to the bottom of the cardfront. The flowers along the border are from the Flower Shop set, punched out with the Pansy Punch. The sentiments (there’s also one at the bottom right corner that you can’t see) are from the Petite Pairs set. I love the Blushing Bride and Gold colour combination.
If you’d like to build up your card stash, there’s plenty of upcoming opportunities – first of all, the Monthly Card Class, happening on Wednesday, September 2nd, which is THIS Wednesday. Take a break from the week of “prepping for back to school” and come join us for a fun evening out! Please contact me to register. All supplies are included to create 4 cards for your $20 class fee. Registration is closing soon for the Tin of Cards and September Christmas Card Classes as well – details and PayPal registration links are on the YamStamps Events Page. For these special classes, product is included, so registration & payment is needed 2 weeks ahead of time to allow time for everything to arrive for class. Please let me know if you have any questions. I’m also working on some Online Christmas Card Classes so if you’re not local to Burlington ON you can still join in the fun!
