Yesterday was my October team meeting and as part of the meeting we participated in a card swap. At the September team meeting we decided to use a card map as our guide for the October meeting. The card map was published in a monthly publication that Stampin' Up! sends to demonstrators - a great support tool with useful articles and additional creative ideas.
Here's the card I created using the card map, using the Gift Givers stamp set:
As you can see this layout is very different than one I would normally create on my own which is what I love about using card maps - they help you see different ways to try when stamping. The colors I chose for my card are Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and I also used the Frostwood Lodge designer series paper and some leftover Silver Glimmer paper.
Why not try using my card as a card map for you to try too? I would love to see what you create if you'd like to take the time to email me a photo to email@example.com. And come on back to my blog soon as I will also post the cards that my team members created using the same map - you will LOVE what they made too!
