Here is my most recent swap creation. Somehow, I managed to work these in amongst all the Christmas prep stress! Always feels good to be stamping, but sometimes it is hard to take the time! Got some great cards back though as usual!! Our theme was Occasions Mini, so I chose to work with the Thanks for Caring set, Springtime Vintage DSP and new Framed Tulips embossing folder. Here is the result:
Card base is Baja Breeze and I embossed the front with the new folder. Next is a layer of Pear Pizzazz behind a floral print from the DSP. Around that I knotted Baja Breeze Seam Binding ribbon. Did you see the fun new colors of Seam Binding ribbon?? Fun fun!! For the main image, I punched a Very Vanilla Decorative Label and used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to add the saying on the lower left in Pear Pizzazz, and butterfly on the right side in Baja Breeze. I punched two more Decorative Labels from Baja Breeze and matted the Very Vanilla one. Final accent is a flower shaped Bitty Button with a Pear Pizzazz punch behind it. Have you all seen those buttons (p. 186) and coordinating punches (p. 200)? I will admit I haven't used them much, but they were the perfect accent for this card! Finally, the saying element was attached with dimensionals.
