I talked with one of my customers on Saturday and she has already finalized her New Years Eve party.....I can't even imagine planning that far in advance since my life is usually fly by the pants and do what you can as quickly as possible :) Maybe you have already noticed that about me. LOL
I thought I would show you my swap card which I originally made for a wedding and totally copied from someone, but I think it's gorgeous.
I used the Shimmering White cardstock with the brushed silver. Then I took the Baja Breeze cardstock and scored it first down the diagonal from the center then 3/4" each direction from there and again turning it around. At each "intersection" of scoring, I put a drop of crystal effects and dipped in silver glitter. I punched out a 1 1/4" circle of Brushed silver and attached three flowers from the Embrace Life Stamp set. I tied the white taffeta ribbon around the card stock. At the bottom, I stamped the Define Your Life "Perfect" stamp on Shimmery white CS and attached to the Brushed Silver and cut around with scissors for a border. In real life this is really a gorgeous card.
