Swap3cardThis is one of the cards I did for a recent demonstrator swap.  We each make numerous copies of the same card & send them to the swap host (in this case, my friend Sue), she "swaps them out" & mails a set of each swap card back to us.  Well, at least that’s how it’s supposed to happen… I was a little late 🙁 so mailed each person their cards individually.  Anyway.  This card uses the Year after Year stamp set.  I stamped the elephant pull toy onto glossy white cardstock, coloured around the lines with my bordering blue stampin’ write marker, then used my blender pen to pull the colour around the image.  I used silver brads on the wheels, and then attached black hemp with my crystal effects (dimensional glaze / super glue!).  The background is stamped with the word "baby" from Everyday Flexible Phrases, plus one of the stamps from Background Basics.  I used (I think!) bashful blue cardstock, brocade blue cardstock, and one of the certainly celery designer papers from my palette o’prints.  This is a slider card, so the elephant pull toy can be (um) pulled across the card.  I used the ticket corner punch on the corners of the layers to make it a bit more interesting.  If I did this swap card again, I might do something different with the dimensions, or perhaps add a larger greeting or sentiment on the front of the card, because as I look at it, it looks kind of bare.  Ah well.  It’s a sample for ideas, right?  LOL.

Until later….
