I had several ideas in the works for my Stampin’ Up Convention swaps. Over the next few days you will see what I chose to actually make and trade. The other cards were great too – but, I only had so much time.
I loved this card because it showcased two things – the new In Colors and 5 of our embossing folders. All in one card!
SS – Perfect Punches
B – D
I – Early Espresso
CS – Poppy Parade, Blushing Bride, Concord Crush, Pear Pizzaz, Peach Parfait, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla
P – Extra Large Oval
D – Embossing Folders: Petals – a – Plenty, Perfect Polka Dots, Square Lattice, Vintage Vogue, Elegant Bouquet
To mass produce these, I waited to cut each 1 inch strip until it was embossed. The only one I did not do this with was the Peach Parfait because I wanted to get just the edge of the Elegant Bouquet folder.
I placed 3 strips of Sticky Strip along the top, middle and bottom of the Very Vanilla.
I started in the center by placing the Concord Crush (embossed with the Square Lattice) down first. Each strip was placed next to the other very carefully and close together.
That was layered on the new Early Espresso front.
The sentiment was stamped from the set Perfect Punches, where I used the Extra Large Oval Punch.
I really enjoyed making this card – I was my first swap that just spoke to me. Silly as that sounds – some designs just really say, “that’s the one”.
