Card Swap



Ok, it's been a quiet week here on my blog...but I was busy creating. One of my LSS ( I have 4 locally..scrapbook heaven!) has a card swap every month. Annette usually has about 12 girls participate. So I made 13 cards, 12 to swap and one to the LSS. She sells them in the store, it's her price for letting us play. So in a couple of weeks, I'll have 12 cards to send out...this month's theme is "Friendship" Enough talk...here is my card with instructions.....



Here are my products:

Bazzill Bling in 24 Karate (8.5x11)

K & Co Margo Blue applique Roses Glitter Paper

Beige cardstock of choice

Aqua Velvet ribbon (1/4" wide)

Sizzox Die "Top Note" (this was a special made for Stampin Up only, but any such die wous work. It is approx. 3 1/4 x 4 1/4)

Color Box Cats Eye Liquid Chalk in Charcoal


Cut Bazzil cardsto in half (5 1/2 x 8/12)Fold in half & score . Bling is heavy, so use caution not to rip or wrinkle.



Cut a piece of beige cardstock 3 1/2 x 4 1/2. Print "Your Friendship on lower part of title block as shown. I used CK Retrospect for my font, but use your favorite.

Softly ink edges of card, as shown. (note: I rarely use my ink pad directly on a project..one you run the chance of having a teardrop shape on the edge and two, it destroys the felt. I use a cheap makeup triangle, dipped in ink. The risk of "hard edges" is almost eliminated ) DON"T GLUE DOWN YET!!!


With Rose Paper & die, cut out 1 shape. Cut this shape in half as shown.


Glue to title card along top. I had to trim a tiny little bit off each side.









Glue to front of card, being careful to center. I tied a simple overhand knot in the left end of ribbon. Using Glue Dots Continuous Line makes it simple to put down ribbon. (I love my ZipDry for everything else..)
I typed the rest of the sentiment "lightens every burden and makes the sun shine brighter" on beige cardstock. Inked edges and glued to inside...annnnddddd.



TaDaa!! A great card for a swap or for a special friend. Girls, we don't get to collect these like we do stickers....brighten someone's day. This week in fact.
And Keep Dreamin
