Paper Share Swap Card

My swap group decided to do a swap using products in the new Holiday Mini that will be available starting October 1st! Here is the card I made:

I am so pleased with how this one turned out... and it's a little more work than I would normally do for a swap card, but I bit the bullet and did it anyway! I did some faux tearing in the background, mainly because the En Francais background stamp doesn't reach all the way across the card. It works great for portrait orientation cards, but I wanted this to mimic a postcard so I turned it the other way. I will confess that the cards I sent in for the swap do not have the ribbon on them because I didn't have enough... but it still looks terrific without the ribbon. The beautiful stamp set I used here is called Winter Post and you'll find it in the upcoming Holiday Mini! I also used a snippet of the new Ski Slope DSP - also in the mini!

And speaking of DSP, there are 3 beautiful new packs in the Holiday Mini (listed below) and I am doing a Paper Share with them!

DSP NameColors Used
Autumn VineChocolate Chip, Really Rust, More Mustard, Sage Shadow
Ski SlopeChocolate Chip, Real Red, Old Olive, Baja Breeze
Frosty DayTangerine Tango, Bashful Blue, Kiwi Kiss, Close to Cocoa

Each participant will receive 36 double-sided 6" x 6" sheets - that's 2 squares of each sheet from all 3 designer packs. If you are interested in joining, the cost is just $12 including tax & shipping. I will take orders until October 12th, so get yours in now!

Have a great weekend, everyone! ...oh, and for my local readers, don't forget to stop by my Open House tomorrow anytime between 10am and 2pm! I'll have copies of the Holiday Mini, so you can be among the first ones to see it!

Oh, Michelle! This card is beautiful! I didn't really care too much for this stamp set, but you sure are working on changing my mind!
