Real-Life GSG Swap

Real-Life GSG Swap

I am so excited to meet some of my on-line friends from the Great Swaps Girls group in real life at the SU! convention this week. This is the card I made to swap with them. Hope they’ll like it!

It may be a little difficult to see in the picture, but I used the Faux Linen technique with Baja Breeze ink on a 4-1/2″ x 3-3/8″ piece of Glossy White card stock for the four background panels. I then stamped the flowers in Ruby Red and Close to Cocoa ink and cut the paper into four 1-1/8″ strips. The Ruby Red mat was paper pierced along the edges, to match the dots in the frame around the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

All supplies by Stampin’ Up!® unless otherwise noted.
Stamps: Happiness Always, Frames with a Flourish
Paper: Baja Breeze, Ruby Red, Kraft, Glossy White, Naturals White
Ink: Baja Breeze, Ruby Red, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Kraft Taffeta Ribbon, Crafters’ Tool Kit, Sanding Block, Stamping Sponge, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, Stampin’ Dimensionals

    Of course we love your card Vera! In fact, last night my dad was grading all my swaps I received and yours got a distinction of A+! Best in class he said! 😉

    I love your gorgeous swap card, Vera! The technique makes the background so soft and matches the set perfectly.
    More fun was getting to meet you! Thanks so much for joining us for dinner, getting to know you better was the most special treat to me.
