As part of the Stamping Event I am enjoying today, we are doing a Shoebox Swap tonight.  I decided to make a versatile card.   My card is designed for a baby/Mom & Dad card.  However, by simply changing one stamp it would be changed for almost any occasion.  The Designer Series Paper would work for almost any reason as well.


Better Together, 141736



I know you have seen this card before either from me or others.  It is such a useful and pretty card that it needs repeating periodically I do believe!

With using this beautiful Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper, I really did not want to cover it up.  So I went with simplicity in the focal point on the front which allows the DSP to shine.


And here is a view of the inside and the gift card slot.

Now you see the gift card slot and will understand the directions listed under Measurements below.  Be sure and add the Tear & Tape close to the edge so you have plenty of room for your gift card.  Although if you do make it too tight, it is not the end of the world….. There is plenty of room for the card to slide in long way also.  Not planned, but a nice unexpected find!!

NOTE:  If you are like me and really love this paper, buy morel now!!!  As it gets closer to the new catalog this, and other items, may sell out.  And they will definitely be retired when the current catalog ends.  Sad, but happy to see what new papers are revealed!

Thank you so much for visiting today!  If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you.  And if you do not currently have a SU Demonstrator, I would love to send you a catalog and help you with any future purchases.

The measurements and the supplies are listed further down.  I hope you have an awesome weekend!!

Another Paper Pumpkin Special:  The March PP was so popular due to the special gift that it sold out.  So Stampin’ Up! has offered a great deal to replace that.  New Subscribers who sign up before April 10, will receive April and May for half price.  So 2 months for the price of 1.  A great deal.  Use my link HERE, and enter the code: SAVEFIFTY0418


It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I would love to have you join my team.  A great perk for demonstrators this time of year is getting to see the new catalog first.  Then we get to order and play with the new products a month early.  For me, that is one of the best parts of being a SU Demonstrator.  Of course, the discount helps!  If you are interested, please contact me and let’s talk.
