A swap in Blue and Green


Swap number two:  SURPRISE!  Blue and Green!  (I KNOW!!)

Florets 2011 swap

  • Fancy Florets and Four Frames stamp sets
  • Whisper White, Pool Party and Island Indigo Card stock
  • Pool Party, Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade Classic ink pads
  • Pool Party Stampin’ Write marker
  • Pear Pizazz Seam binding and Linen Thread
  • Boho Blossom, Decorative Label and Bitty Bits punches

The first time I used this design and color collage , I trimmed the edge.  It was a Very Long Edge.  The more I thought about doing that 65 times, the more I thought I needed another design.  There was still quite a bit of work involved in masking all these panels in order to get the Designer Series Paper effect, but it was much easier than hand trimming all of those edges.  A girl has to draw the line somewhere.

Don’t you love that e.e.cummings quote?

A note to the WOW swappers:  if you received one of these cards and it didn’t look exactly like this, please accept my heartfelt apologies.  I ran out of Pear Pizazz Seam Binding and was scrambling for a substitute.  (There were 2 rolls of Pear Pizazz seam binding with my name on them on a Fedex truck someplace in Honolulu; the nerve of Fedex.  They could have gotten it to me on Friday if they had REALLY tried.)  Some cards got 1/4 inch Old Olive grosgrain, and other had the retired 3/8 inch Old Olive taffeta.  To make the card current, the Designer Label should lift off pretty easily and you can remove the old ribbon and add in the new.
