As promised, here are some photos of the swaps I made for our team training last Sunday.
To make the card blank I cut the card to 4" x 12" and scored at 4" and 8" using my Simply Scored Board. Then I put the Diagonal Board on top of the simply scored board and scored diagonally from the top corner down to the first 4" scoreline and then at the 8" mark, down to the bottom point of the 12" card blank.
Here is a photo of the card with the ribbon undone.
The Designer Series Paper I used is called Twitterpated and it is definately one of my favourates.
Have you worked out how I made the centre of the flowers? They are bottle tops that I flattened by running through the Big Shot and then I pressed them into some Versamark and sprinkled white embossing powder on top. The bottle tops were then heated using a heat tool which melts the embossing powder and is a great way of changing the colour of any embellishment (metal, card or even chipboard) and the finish is lovely and shiny.
The stamped image inside the center of the bottle top is stamped using one of the flower images from the Mixed Bunch stamp set and then punched out with a 1" circle punch.
Have you got any plans for the weekend? I have to do all my christmas shopping and put the tree and trimmings up so it will be a busy one for me.
Hope you have a great weekend
