My Freak Swap

Good morning everyone! I hope that your first week of the new year was great! I am glad that it was a short one of waking up early! It was sure nice to sleep in today. Especially since the weather is sort of dreary today. Not used to that as it has been so nice around here! You wouldn't think it was even winter! I do hope the mountains get some snow because they are kind of hurting for it right now.

Today's card is one I did for a recent swap I was in. The swap was to showcase the new products in the Occasions mini. I do like how this one turned out! My card base is Blushing Bride. Then I cut a piece of Whisper White and stamped the greeting from Friendly Phrases in the bottom right hand corner in Basic Grey. This piece was glued to a piece of Basic Grey and the glued to the card front. Then I cut a piece of the Twitterpated designer paper and flagged both ends before gluing it down to the Whisper White piece. Then I used the new labels framelits dies and cut a label from Whisper White. I popped this up on the card. For my flower I stamped the image from Mixed Bunch in Blushing Bride onto Whisper White and cut it out by hand. Then I adhered it to a flower that I punched from Riding Hood Red with the blossom punch. I only put adhesive in the middle of the flower and then gently curled the edges of the petals to give it a little more dimension. This part is popped up on the label. Then I stamped the flower center with Riding Hood Red onto Whisper White and cut it out. I put a silver brad through the center and then popped this up in the center of the flower. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
