Lately I have been trying to come up with some designs for swap cards and I have a serious block, if I sit down and just craft things are ok, but the fact that I am trying to come up with the perfect design is driving me nutso, and I can't. I made this card awhile ago and just had it sitting on my desk when my sister seen and said I should post. I was going to make this card for swapping at regionals but I don't have any silver hodge podge and you have to use only current material for regional swaps so back to the drawing board

All supplies SU

Bottom base is not quite navy, then a strip of Urban Garden DSP.

The other base is kiwi kiss, baja breeze mat, not quite navy mat. I then stamped the image from pocket silhouettes in baja breeze and not quite navy. A little pewter paper clip from hodge podge and a little bit of whisper white ribbon to finish it off.

Amber.. I love the design of this gatefold card.. and so lovely with this set.. Sorry about the hodgepode..hmmm could you just add the sentiment in its place with the circle and scallop circle punches.. just an idea..

Love this style of card. You've just reminded me that I need to get my swaps underway for our field training on 23 March.

Love this card! Great colors and it would be perfect for Regionals (they are a blast!!!). Even without the hodgepodge it would be a fantastic card! I say "Go for it anyways!"

Lovely design!!!
