One of my favorite swaps I received at the Stampin' Up! Minneapolis Regional Seminar was from LuAnn Dehne. She made this adorable Sweet Summer (2011 Sale-a-Bration) card. Exactly what I was looking for, for my Stamp Out the Winter Blues stamp camp this past Saturday!
I didn't have a few of the supplies she used, so I changed up a couple things. Take a look.
Here are my changes:
1. I flipped the layout
2. The greeting is from Sale-a-Bration stamp set...So Happy For You
3. My card uses Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery (vs. LuAnn's card uses Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzaz)
4. I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the center of the flowers (had to see in the picture)
5. I added a strip of Soft Suede
Swap cards are the great starting point when making cards. I find myself starting to duplicate the card, then veering off in a different direction to make it my own.
