Any Size Card!

I've been busy working on swap cards. Here is the card I made for my GSG swap of Any-Size-other than-A2 Card Swap. I chose to do a 4 .25 inch square, kick-stand card. I was on my Kraft cs kick when I designed this card, so that is the base. To make the kick-stand style card, I cut off 1 inch of the bottom front of the card and then when I attached the main front image I lined that up with the bottom of the back of the card (keeping it a 4.25 in. square). I used the summer picnic ds paper to set my color scheme, which also allowed me to use my new wide celery ribbon. Aren't the little stick people so cute? They're from All in the Family and stamped in Black stazon, then colored with WWC and aqua painter and paper pieced with scraps of Summer Picnic paper. The sentiment is the word set that coordinates with All in the Family, called Family phrases (it's a new-to-me set!). I added a few bashful blue brads and it was finished. If you haven't tried making different size cards (other than the standard, A2 size), I challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and try something new. I hope to share the other cards I get back from this swap. I know some of the girls are doing circle cards and I can't wait to see them. Check back tomorrow to see my NVR swap card. Don't know what NVR, is, well I'll tell you tomorrow.


Thanks so much for your kind and supportive words. I appreciate each of you taking the time to leave some love. Have a great day!
