FRESH CUTS SWAP CARD

Happy Hump Day!!! I have been very busy trying to get all my swap cards done for Convention. I really don't like mass producing cards, but it seems the best way to do this....so I made twenty of these with my Fresh Cuts set. I know in the pic it looks like I used purple but it really is Bashful Blue, I don't know why it came out this way - sorry! I kept it simple and have not decided whether or not to add brads to all of them or not - I mean, that IS a lot of brads, but I like the way it looks. What do you think??? I used my Scalloped Edge Punch again, I am definitely addicted - lol!! This card is pretty simple, so I will leave you with a recipe! I have some design team responsibilities to catch up on today, so it will be a day in the scrap room for me (poor me, lol!) Tyler went camping, Kayla is at a friends, Tony is at work.....ahhhhhh, the house is ALL MINE!!!! I love days like this! I hope you all have a fabulous day!

Pretty card Alex. Yep, it can be kind of a drag to mass produce but I just turn on a movie and produce away! It makes it more fun.

Man, I would kill for a day with an empty house! Have fun stamping! Love your swap card!!!

Bethany Paull said...

Really nice. I like the brads. If you need to, you could punch little 1/8" black circles and glue down, to get a similar look without using up ALL of your brads.

Catherine said...

Beth Norman said...
