Control Freaks Swap Card

Hello everyone! I can't believe how quickly this month has gone by! I start back to school a week from this Friday! Wow!! This week is filled with appointments and registering Nick for his Sophomore year! What?! Summer will be over for us way too soon! He will be out today riding his motorcycle and enjoying as much as he can! Me? Well, I need to get caught up on a ton of things! Laundry being at the top of the list. 

Today's card was made for a recent swap I was in.

  • Card base is Bermuda Bay
  • Cut two strips from the Cherry on Top designer paper and angle the ends then adhere to a piece of Pool Party card stock
  • Cut a tag from Whisper White and use the Ornate Tag Topper punch to make the top of the tag
  • Adhere a strip of Cherry on Top washi tape along the bottom of the tag
  • Stamp the two outside candles from Build a Birthday stamp set using Watermelon Wonder and Crushed Curry inks
  • Thread a piece of Bermuda Bay thick baker's twine through the top of the tag and tie a knot
  • Adhere tag to Pool Party panel using dimensionals
  • Stamp the third candle onto a piece of Whisper White using Pool Party and Crushed Curry inks and cut out then adhere to tag with dimensionals
  • Stamp the greeting onto a strip of Whisper White using Bermuda Bay ink and flag both ends then adhere to middle candle
  • Add two mini brads to the Pool Party panel then adhere to card base
