My OnStage Swaps

These are the cards I used for my Swaps (Cards to Trade with others) at OnStage last week.  They are all the same layout.  They just use different Designer Series Papers (DSP) and coordinating cardstock.  I pre-cut the cardstock and the 3″ x 4-1/4″ DSP.  In just an hour my three friends cut the DSP diagonally and assembled the cards.  I punched, then stamped the sentiments using my Stamparatus so I could stamp two sentiments at once with different colors of ink.  We were surprised at how quickly the cards were finished.  I will put the paper and ink information under each photo.

Happiest Birthday Flower DSP Card

I just LOVE the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper (DSP) with all the beautiful Flowers to add to my cards.  The piece I used came with the center blank to add a sentiment.  It was even already in the rectangle shape so I just had to cut it out.  If you just stamp on the front it is truly a quick and easy card.  If you mess up the stamping, you can easily stamp on cardstock and cut it out to add to your card front.
