Swap Card for October
We recently held a swap with our local group. A lot of people were busy, so we only had a few swaps.
Here’s the card I made. You’ll see that it’s a variation on the card I made for the October newsletter. It’s a pretty easy template to use; I’m sure I’ll use it more later!
Stamp set: Build a Blossom
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla textured and smooth, Frostwood Lodge DSP (Holiday Mini)
Accessories: Victoria crochet trim, Designer Frames textured impressions folder set, Perfect Polka Dots textured impressions folder, Distressing essentials kit, Blossom Petals Builder punch, Fire Circle brads, 1″ circle punch
The frame was cut closely to the embossing, and then the dots were inked in Crumb Cake using the solid stamp from the Distressing essentials kit.
I stamped and punched 12 petals for each card to make the poinsettia focal image. I glued down the first layer of 6 to a 1″ circle, and then glued the next layer offset from the bottom layer. Once the glue was dry, I inserted a yellow rhinestone brad from the Fire Circle set. The poinsettia is attached to the card using dimensionals.
The inside of the card has some of the same DSP, and I stamped the poinsettia image, from the Bells & Boughs set, in Crumb Cake.
