Debby's Card Swap:
Debby's Mother's Day card featured the Pansy, Petite Petal and Itty Bitty punches. The technique used to texturize the flowers on the card is called Faux dry embossing. We used sponges to apply the colour to the die cut flowers before gluing them to the card layer and running them through the Big Shot machine. I'd forgotten this technique so it was fun to re-learn the steps and create this wonderful card.
Maureen's Card Swap:
|Maureen showed us how to make a box card. What fun! I loved making the balloons but found it quite tricky getting them attached to the box. Can you say patience! I think I had more glue dots stuck to me than to the transparencies.|
|These little banners are made with the banner punch and stamp set from this year's Sale-a-bration catalogue.|
For my swap card, I decided to make a card using the same design as in my post "Make A Wish - Birthday Banner Card" tutorial. The only change I made was in the colour layout. We had fun making this card
|If you're making this card be careful with the placement of your dimensionals. As you can see in this photo, I should have centered the dimensionals so they didn't hang off the sides of the banner. Fortunately I was able to fix this problem.|
Hope you enjoyed seeing the cards we made. It was truly a fun night. I'll be looking forward to getting together with these gals again soon.
