I loved coming up with the colors for this card. I used a card that Mary Fish made and changed the colors, stamp set, etc. So basically, I used her sketch. This would be a great sketch to duplicate a pile of cards using different sentiments. Having cards on hand is always a good idea.

I made this card for a card swap a couple of months ago. It was fun coming up with a design that used mostly products from the June-Dec Mini Catalog.
I made ten of these cards, a very manageable number. I received a number of beautiful cards in the swap and I was impressed that the stamp sets, paper and dies used on the ones received were none of the ones I had already purchased. Which makes me want them all! I love how many choices Stampin' Up! gives you when you shop!
Speaking of shopping... Don't forget that some beautiful Designer Series Papers are on SALE now through October 31st!
Please use my Online Store any time.

The card folds into a regular size for mailing. The die cut holds the flap in place to stand it up. Under the flap is a place for you to write your own message.
I was inspired by Jo Anne Hewins' card.
Measurements for this card:
Card Base: Cut 8-1/2" x 11". Score at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2".
"Mini Card": Cut 3-1/4" x 8-1/2". Score at 4-1/2". Add a piece of Designer Series Paper to the front after you fold it on the score line. Attach to the 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" portion of the card base.
Fold the card base in a mountain style along the score lines.
Attach a piece of Designer Series Paper or dry embossed card stock (2-1/2" x 4") to the front of the card. Use any punch or die cut to hold the mini card by attaching the shape with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Decorate the Mini Card and the small front panel with the punch any way you like.
Fold the mini card behind the small front portion for mailing.
I hope you enjoy my directions.
