Holiday Catalogue Team Swap – Part One

By | September 3, 2017

Hi there

Last month we had a team training day where those that wanted to could participate in the Team Swap.  A swap is where you make 20 of the same card and then swap with 19 others so that you get a variety of cards.  It then means we can show you a mix of products from a new catalogue.

For my swap I used the Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Card Pack to create full sized cards.  I made a variety of samples so I’ll share a few with you now and then the rest over the next few days so be sure to check back tomorrow for installment #2.

The card pack comes with 72 double-sided cards – 52 that are 7.6cm x 10.2cm (2 each of 26 designs) and 20 that are 10.2cm x 15.2cm (2 each of 10 designs), 1 cardstock sticker sheet, 1 acetate sticker sheet and 4 acetate card overlays.  All of this for just $21.25NZD.  You can make a heap of Christmas cards with these.

Holiday Team Swap - Snowflake Sentiment-MaM card pack - 1

The card base and mat are either Cherry Cobbler or Old Olive and the bows are all Lemon Lime Twist Finely Woven Ribbon.  The sentiment is from a new set called Snowflake Sentiments on page 35.  As we don’t sell Embossing Powder in every colour I created my own coloured Embossing Powder.  To achieve this ink your stamp with VersaMark then stamp it again in your chosen colour – Cherry Cobbler or Real Red – then stamp on your project.  Apply Clear Embossing Powder and heat.  One tip – if you are repeating this on multiple cards as I was you will need to clean your stamp after you have stamped otherwise your VersaMark will get very dirty.

The DSP is from the Merry Little Christmas DSP.  The colours used in this pack are Basic Black, Old Olive and Whisper White.

Check back tomorrow for the next batch of cards.
