It has been awhile since my last post but I’ve finally sat myself down & made a “Suspension Card”.  I’ve seen these around for sometime now, and always thought they looked too hard, but how wrong I’ve been all this time.  Again, no instructions, just took it from a couple of samples in a book & put them altogether.

4 You…

G’day Stampers,

Being a couple of days since my last entry, thought I would share a small project I am currently working on.  This will not be finished ’til later on 2-nite!  I am yet to decide how & what I am going to make to store the cards.  Something simple & quick, as were the cards, but yet something which will suit the style of the cards!
I want to highlight the use of the great “Wheels” Stampin’ Up!® have!

Inks – Perfect Plum, Pale Plum
Cardstock – Very Vanilla, Perfect Plum, Pale Plum

This is the 2nd card we did in our “3 Different Folds” – the very popular & easy “Swing Fold”.  To make it a little different,  I have actually stamped both sides of the card
