Wetlands Swap

September 14th, 2013 · 2 Comments

Wetlands Swap

Today I’m participating in a rather special shoebox swap in Fort Meade, MD. A few months ago, my friends and I chose one particular stamp set in the new Stampin’ Up! catalog that we would all design a card with for our next shoebox swap: Wetlands. I saw this cool Tri-Cut Dies Tutorial in the August/September 2013 edition of Pat Huntoon’s Technique Junkie Newsletter that I wanted to try with these images. Baked Brown Sugar Core’dinations card stock was used for the dry-embossed background panel, and rubbed with a sanding block to have the lighter core color revealed.

Thank for stopping by!
