Card Swap Sunday Country Lane Suite 1

My swap card features some new products including the Corrugated Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder. I really miss my crimper (did you own this tool way back in the day?) and this folder allows met to crimp my paper perfectly.  


The patterned paper is from the Country Lane Designer Series Paper. The coordinating colours are rich and warm and include Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, Mint Macaroon and Old Olive.

Here's how to made today's card:


Whisper White Thick - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"; scored at 4 1/4" to create card base
Whisper White - 3" x 2"
Blackberry Bliss - 5" x 3 3/4"
Crushed Curry - 1/2" x 5 1/4"
Country Lane Designer Series Paper - 4 3/4" x 3 1/2"


  1. Fold the Whisper White Thick piece in half to form card base.
  2. Glue the DSP to the Blackberry Bliss mat.
  3. Emboss the Crushed Curry strip using the Corrugated Dynamic Embossing Folder and Big Shot.
  4. Wrap the Linen Thread around the middle of the Crushed Curry piece and tie in a bow on the left side.
