As the Stampin’ Pals attend OnStage without me, (yes, I’m pouting just a little, even though I did get to attend last year), I took part in the “Green with Envy” Pals Card Swap recently. Card Swaps are such a fun way to get wonderful creations from other crafters while sharing your won creation with them! I chose to create a card using the Sweet Soiree Designer Series Papers.
Honestly, what is NOT to love about these beautiful papers teeming with silver foil accents?
They’re GORGEOUS in person, really. I used two of the paper designs and mounted on a card base of Old Olive card stock. Before adhering, I wrapped a length of the Berry Burst 3/8′ Metallic Edge Ribbon around the middle of the card. I stamped a sentiment from the Petal Palette Stamp Set onto Whisper White cardstock and punched it out with the Tailored Tag Punch. I popped that onto the card with Dimensionals, and decorated with some Basic Rhinestones — you can’t have enough bling! I adhered a silver foil butterfly I cut out using the Butterflies Thinlits Dies, and that was it!
So even though I was “Green with Envy,” I DID get the opportunity to swap cards with many talented papercrafters! Thanks, Pals!
