Almost every month I participate in a card swap with other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators It’s an easy, fun little swap – you only have to make 1 card and mail to another demo. In return I receive a card generally from a different demonstrator. The theme for February was an Easter, Spring or Thank You card. I created the below Happy Easter Card featuring the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper.
I really, really like how this card turned out! Let me give you the supply list and then I’ll tell you all the details!
INK: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron
Card Stock/Paper: So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Very Vanilla, Tea for Two DSP
Big Shot & Dies: Large Scallop Edgelits
I used a bunch of Stampin’ Dimensionals on this card. There are a couple raised layers – the bashful blue embellished layer as well as the punched bird and the bird’s wing were all attached to the card with dimensionals. For a little added interest I used the Paper Piercer and the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack to pierce a border along the scallop die cut Very Vanilla card stock. Oh and I used the swirl-like stamp from the Creative Elements stamp set to give the Very Vanilla CS a little bit of pattern. I stamped the swirl in So Saffron Ink. It was like creating my own custom patterned paper! In addition, since the Tea for Two DSP is sort of distressed, I used the Stampin’ Distress Tool to rough up the edges of some of the papers and I used a sponge along with some Chocolate Chip Ink to ink up some of the edges too. The result is a card that is slightly distressed. The Linen Thread seemed like the perfect accent to complete the distressed look!
