Awhile back I told you that I came up with my swap card for a special demonstrator dinner that I will be going to in October and that I couldn't post a picture of it until after the event. Even though I love it, the creative perfectionist in me made me realize that it wasn't the right card for this swap. Some of the reasons include: The fact that I don't know yet how many people will be participating in the swap and I only have so many of the Designer Labels. It's also a fall themed card that uses an older set (With Gratitude) which limits the time my fellow demonstrators can use it as a sample for their businesses. My goal was to design a card around a stamp set that is new in the Fall-Winter IBC.
Well, I have been trying to create "the perfect card" for the swap before I totally toss this card idea out the window (so to speak)... and it finally happened today! What does that mean to you??? I get to share the original card with you! Here it is:
Here's a close-up so you can see the dimension:
There's nothing saying that I won't be making more of these cards to send out to family and friends between now and Thanksgiving. :)
In case you were wondering, here are the supplies I used:
Card Stock/Designer Paper:
Always Artichoke (craft & classic ink)
Junto DSP (from the Spanish Supplemental Catalog: Celebrando Creatividad)
1/16" circle (for the brads)
Big Shot & Leaves #2 die
Styled Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware (Designer Label Holder & brads)
1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon - Always Artichoke
Clear Embossing Powder
As far as my "final" swap card goes, you'll have to wait until after October 24 to see!
