Stampin Up Everything Eleanor

everything eleanor swap



This card was inspired by a swap card I saw at the 2014 Stampin Up Convention last month. I have been asked by several people how the card was created and unfortunately I only had taken a photo of

the card and did not have any of the instructions or the name of the original creator of the project so I made my own version of the card and I taught it at my August Stamp Camp.

It was a big hit!

So I would like to share it with you my subscribers.
