June Unit Swap Card using Cherry-O

Yesterday I attended the monthly unit meeting that my upline Shari holds.  I look forward each month to attending the unit meeting and am thankful to Shari for providing such a fun and informative night each month for her downline! 

I have been a bit busy creating art for convention coming up in a month that I am not able to share with you all quite yet!  It has been SO hard to not be able to share my creations with anyone.....but I guess good things come to those who wait??  Not sure if that really applies here, but it sounded good anyhow!  LOL

Onto my card!  This is a 6x6 card pattern that came from the Wishes book.  Each month I try to challenge myself by choosing a swap item that I usually don't create for myself.  This month was the 6x6 and I actually had fun putting this together YESTERDAY just hours before unit meeting.  I only had to make 11 of them....uugghhh when will I learn??  LOL

Supplies used:
Paper: Cherry-O, Crystal Blue CS is distressed with Crystal Blue ink
Ink: Crystal Blue, Chocolate and Tulip
Stamps: Thank You, Summer Wishes (Splendor WOTG Kit) and Spot on Backgrounds
Embellishments: Sweet Leaf Ribbon, Basic Buttons (colonial white used) Cherry-O Opaques, Cranberry Waxy Flax, Spring Blossom Just Blooms
Tools: 1 1/4 Circle Punch

Thanks for stopping by! 

I hope that this has inspired you to step out of your comfort zone and create a card size that you normally don't make OR give......

Happy Scrapping and Stamping!!!

Nice, makes me think that Wishes needs to be on my wish list!!!
Do you provide envelopes for the swap cards too?

Jennifer said...

UUMMM Yeah!! Wishes is a GREAT book to have for cards! It even has 3 different multi card instructions with cutting dimensions and step by step directions on how to make them.

I don't provide envelopes for this swap as they are mostly used for display for each of the consultants customers. Not sure what happens to them
