This year for convention, I joined 10 different organized swaps. I'd never done that before, and I must say I was really pleased with the cards I swapped and received. The day before Convention, I realized that I did not have cards for general swapping, so I got busy and starting playing with my new stamps. This was the card I came up with, and to be honest, it was my favorite of everything I swapped.
Stamps: Hello, Doily; Creative Elements
Ink: Elegant Eggplant, Lucky Limeade, Crumb Cake
Paper: Elegant Eggplant, Lucky Limeade, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Lucky Limeade ruffled ribbon, SNAIL, Crop-o-dile. sponge daubers, crinkled cellophane paper
I had planned on using Wisteria Wonder, but I really felt this needed the deeper Elegant Eggplant to give it some punch. I also did a lot of antiquing with the crinkled up cellophane paper and Crumb Cake ink.
After Convention, I made some of these for a swap I was in. The Very Vanilla card stock was a double layer, scored and folded at the top. Then there was a score line 1/2" from the top fold, so the front lifted up like a flap, with the ribbon securing the layers. (Elegant Eggplant was cut 4 1/2" x 5 1/2", Lucky Limeade was 4" x 5 1/4", and Very Vanilla was 3 3/4" x 10" and scored at 4 3/4" and 5". I hope that helps!)
Thanks for stopping by today! As always, I love to hear your comments, and if you have any questions, I'm happy to answer them.
