Love Variety Swap Card Round 1

Colors : Black, Col White, Bamboo, Desert Sand

Papers : Creative Basics Silhouette ('08)

Stamps : Soul Mate, Homestead

Accents : Liquid glass, ribbon, black brad, col white edge anchor, cuttlebug embossing, pop dots

This card I made for one round of a swap that I'm in. The theme is love and the challenge is to use new products in the upcoming Spring catty. Card size is 5x6. I wanted to use these papers with another color like red, but then thought I'd try the regular color scheme out first. My second round cards will probably have a pop of color in them. It's been fun playing with some new product right away. I'm so conservative when it comes to using new papers or embellies that I get. I always try to use up old stuff before playing with my new stuff, in fact some of my summer and fall catty papers still haven't been touched because I keep thinking I need to use up more of my stash first. This swap challenged me to step out of my comfort zone and play with my new papers right off. At first I was a little distressed, but now I'm excited. This was a fun card to make once. Making 11 wore me out and took my spare time between 2 days to make them all but I think the results are worth it as I'm really happy with how they turned out. I hope the other ladies in the swap also like it.
