- I used the new Whisper White Heavy Cardstock for the background piece. It has a nice, heavy weight that is great for the base piece of cardstock.
- Before die-cutting the banner, I embossed the Dots for Days stamp on the Cucumber Crush paper with clear Stampin' emboss powder.
- I wanted a longer banner than the Banner Framelits can cut. I cut the banner in half and hid the cut behind with the Hello Honey piece.

My second card made heavy use of the Big Shot for embossing and die cutting.

Earlier this month, I went to the Stampin' Up! convention in Salt Lake City. I had a blast!! One of my favorite parts of convention was swapping cards with other crafters. I made 40 cards each of 4 designs to swap with people. Over the next week, I'll post each card I made to swap.
The first card was made using the new 2015-2017 In Colors.
|Stampin' Up! Supplies:|
Stamps: Bordering Blooms. Cardstock: Tip Top Taupe, Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder. Ink: Tip Top Taupe. Ribbon: Tip Top Taupe 1" Dotted Lace Trim. Tools: Triple Banner Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Tear & Tape Adhesive.
- I embossed the Tip Top Taupe cardstock with the Large Polka Dot embossing folder. I inserted the cardstock about 2/3 of the way into the embossing folder so that the top stayed smooth.
- I liked the flower centers from the Bordering Blooms stamp set, but using the whole border strip was too cumbersome. I carefully cut one bloom off of the stamp. Since it's a polymer stamp, it's easy to line back up when I want to use the whole strip.
- The flag edges were done with the Banner Triple punch. The strip is narrower than the smallest guide in the punch, so I just made sure the strip was centered and it worked perfectly.
Thanks for visiting! Come back in a few days to see my next swap card.
