Back to Fall

After my brief visit to December yesterday, I'm back on my Fall crusade today. Maybe because it was only 80 degrees today with low humidity and we actually had the doors and windows open for awhile today. Anyway, last night I was working on some swap cards that I needed to do a special fold card. I decided to do a criss cross card and then it hit me that the pennant die for the Big Shot might work. So I got it out and started working with it and after about an hour, I figured it out. Don't worry though the other 8 went quite quickly as well as this one that's a little different because I don't want my fellow swappers to see my swap card just yet. I've always liked these type cards but felt like they wasted a lot of cardstock. This one doesn't which makes me love it even more! I also like that I don't have to do a bunch of measuring and special cutting. Hooray for the Big Shot! All products from Stampin' Up!
