More swap cards

These cards are more of the cards that I swapped at Bobbie's workshop last month. Time was running out and I had not had an opportunity to make any swap cards, so I went to my desk and found 'pieces and parts' and went from there.
On this card I used my Simply scored scoring tool (122334) to make lines top and bottom, just subtle lines.  Then I used small punches, to punch out the corners of the square scalloped punch (retired punch) then layered them over a black cards stock strip, then I added bakers twine. I used a square punch and took out a 'little bite' on the folded left edge (maybe punching only a 1/4 of the punch then took another 'little bite' out of the right side, top only, this gave my bakers twine a place to stay so it will not move.  Who does not need additional Birthday cards?!
This front was already stamped and set aside, so I just trimmed it down slightly then layered it over a garden green layer, and used fancy scissors, added a ribbon, then layered it over a black layer then on to a purple card.  The tulips are one of my favorite images, a Stampin' Up! retired 2 step stamping set.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I haven't checked your blog for a while; I'm so glad you are posting again as I love seeing what you are working on. I tried to find where I could sign up for email updates...but I don't think there is one on your page? If you have one, point it out to me!

    I love both cards but especially the punched one; I need a quick card for a shoebox group and this will be perfect for it. Quick & easy but eye catching, so thank you!
