HUGS: from the heart


     This is my card for the Scrapp'n Savvy June SWAP. The paper is called "the Graduates Collection" from Doodlebug Designs. The pictures will show a more generic card, but the cards I turned in for the SWAP were graduation cards.



     To make the card base: cut card stock in rectangle 4 1/4 x 11. Score diagonally upper left to lower right; fold back with bone folder; score at center of the V; fold in half with bone folder.
     To cut nested pattern paper: cut rectangle 4 x 10 1/2; cut upper left to lower right; IMPORTANT - small triangle pattern face up; hold paper together as thought it is scored rather than cut; cut at the center of the V.
