Pootlers Card Swap

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you so much for visiting my blog today, I really hope you like my project.  These cards were made for the Pootlers team card swap. 3 times a year when ever there is a new catalogue we do a card swap. We are groups into groups of 6 and we each make 5 identical cards and send them to the other 5 people in the group to show off the new products. This is a great way to see products you may not have bought yet or give you inspiration for using the products you do have.

I have used my favourite set the Butterfly Gala and matching punch and a stamp set that was FREE at OnStage that although I like the sentiments I can not actually make any of the images look good. So I forced myself to use the set and came up with this idea for the stamp with lines, I was going to use the Gingham paper but these stripes work well I think.

Measurements and Materials

Card Base: 

  • C6 size - half a standard sheet of A4 card stock
  • 8 1/4" x 5 7/8"
  • Folded size
  • 4 1/8" x 5 7/8"


Card Mat:

  • Cut 1/4" shorter and thiner than base size to give 1/8" margin all the way around
  • 5 7/8" x 4 1/8"


Second Card Mat:
  • Cut 1/4" shorter and thiner than base size to give 1/8" margin all the way around
  • 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

American card size: (I hope I am right!)
  • 8 1/2" x 11"
  • Base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2"
  • Folded: 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
  • Mat: 5 1/4" x 4"
  • 2nd Mat: 5" x 3 3/4" 

Stamping

  • The butterflies stamp together so they line up with the duet punch easily
  • I stamped this twice to give me 2 large and 2 small butterflies
  • I decide not to stamp the solid colour stamp over the butterfly outline
  • I stamped the lines 3 times on the bottom of the top mat
  • I rotated the stamp each time as it seemed to follow the lines better that way
  • I stamped the sentiment about 1/2" above the lines on the right of the card
  • Any of the sentiments in the set would have worked but I liked 'I am glad we are friends'  because it seemed appropriate for my team mates
  • I stuck the ribbon between the lines and the sentiment
  • I then scattered the butterflies on the front of the card as per the picture
