Pennant Swap Card

Good morning, Friends! It was a little hard to get up this morning! I wanted to stay snuggled under the warm blankets! But my husband got up a little earlier than I and built a nice roaring fire! And I have my coffee... just waiting for it to kick in! I guess it will be just a day of trying to get some projects finished up!

Today's card is one that I did for a recent swap that I participated in. I really liked the way this one turned out! The card base is Cherry Cobbler with a piece of Garden Green that was run through the Big Shot using the Snow Burst embossing folder and then a piece of Frostwood Lodge designer paper that has the corners rounded and then a strip of Crumb Cake that was flagged at the bottom - all of these are glued flat. Then I took a piece of Cherry Cobbler and used my Perfect Pennants die to create the scallop circle. The Crumb Cake circle was punched with my 2 1/2" circle punch and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake and glued it to the scallop circle and then popped it up on the card. I used the stamp set Pennant Parade and stamped the tree in Garden Green on a scrap of Whisper White and cut it out and glued it to a piece of Garden Green that had been punched with the Pennant builder punch. I also stamped the little pot and cut it out to glue behind my tree. The tree is popped up on the circle and has a rhinestone added at the top! The greeting, also from the same set, is stamped in Early Espresso on the Crumb Cake strip. A fun and festive card!! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
