April swap card

April 25, 2010

I love this card!!!  

This is my April swap card…  I
wanted to do something with this new set (coming out on May 1st in
the new summer mini catalog).  The minute
I saw the mini catalog, I knew I wanted THAT set.  Silly me, I was willing to pay that price for
just the one stamp.  When the SU order
was received at home in a box with many other items, I dug thru the box to find
THAT set.  Imagine my surprise when I found
all those other stamps thrown into the set… serious bonus!  I guess I ‘had eyes only’ for that one
stamp. 

 

Here’s the card…

I was looking thru a magazine and saw an article about
sheets.  The print on the sheets reminded
me of THAT set coming in the mail…  The
advertisement had a painted black wood bed with a white satin bed skirt blowing
in the wind.  I knew I had to somehow
incorporate those textures into my card. 

 

Notice the black embossing on the black card base?

The dsp is from the scrapping kit called Guest Book.  The scrappin kit includes sheets of self adhesive die
cuts (including strips of dsp).  I think
this is one of my all time favorites.

 

This is Green Flower Project #3 (gee wiz, I hope I don’t
continue making green flowers every month… this phase needs to end soon!)
