I've used this design so many times. It can be birthday or anything you would want to celebrate. This is my Anniversary card. The card base is dark teal, with a layer of black and then kraft. I used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder on this and then scored lines under the embossing on the top and bottom. The ribbon is from AMuse. I love this color combination. I need to find more of this teal, I think I used all I had for this card. The lady hosting this swap lives in Indiana where they've been having some really bad weather.
The next swap that is due in July is one for Wedding Anniversary cards. Again I've used this design before, I just changed the paper used for the butterflies and the ribbon. The card base is white as is the layer which I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on. I then scored lines under the embossing and at the bottom of the card. Its a little difficult to see that it is white on white. I cut the butterflies from a sheet of Basic Grey designer cardstock. It looks black, it's actually navy blue. The ribbon is navy blue also. I put some tiny pearl stickers down the middle of the butterflies and popped them up with foam tape. The hostess for this swap lives in Maryland.
I'll put these in the mail tomorrow. The next SCS swaps are due in August so I can take a little bit of a break. Although, I now need to get ready for another Shoebox Card Swap which I am hosting here at the park next week Saturday. We'll be using the clubhouse. Fourteen ladies have signed up so it should be a fun time. I was going to host in August, however, Julie who was going to host this month had an unexpected conflict so we are switching. She'll host the August shoebox swap.
The theme for this month's swap is Summer Time Fun or Patriotic. I don't know if I have anything that will work. I need to look and see what I might have, I don't want to have to go buy something. :) Yeah, right!!
