3rd Swap

Here is the 3rd card that I came up with to swap at convention. I had just gotten this word set, All Holidays. My primary interest in the set was this saying!!

Card base is Elegant Eggplant, with a Very Vanilla layer, than a Floral background image stamped in Elegant Eggplant on Very Vanilla. The saying is also stamped in Eggplant on Vanilla, with an Eggplant layer behind. I rounded two of the corners for the unique shape. Two medium half-pearls were added with mini glue dots and Vanilla grosgrain ribbon was tied around and layered under the saying.

I actually had another version of this, not sure if I still have one or the scan. But I had some of the Eggplant grosgrain and White half pearls. So, I used the Shimmery White CS instead of the Vanilla, and replaced the Vanilla ribbon with Eggplant, and the Vanilla pearls with White. It was very pretty!!

I didn't make a ton of any of these cards-I was working with limited supplies on all. That's what happens when you don't plan ahead! It worked out OK though, I didn't get bored with any of them! I had some where around 115 cards in all and that was plenty to carry and trade. I have one more to show you, either later today or tomorrow. I have taken the last few days off from anything stamping related, but need now to get back on track! My Bigshot should be arriving today, and hopefully catalogs too! That should motivate me to head upstairs this evening and WORK!!!

This is very elegant! I think these colors would work well for sympathy cards as well.
