Stampin’ Up Founder’s Circle Event: Swap Card

Sep 26, 2015 | card making, Founder's Circle 2015, Lighthearted Leaves, swapping, swaps

So I promised I’d come back and share with you the swap card I made for the Founder’s Circle event last week in St. George, Utah. I felt there was a little pressure with this as it’s the top 100 demonstrators in the country! And while, I normally make cards for classes and events that are easy to copy and duplicate, this one I wanted to “step up” a bit.

So here it is…

I used the new Lighthearted Leaves set from the 2015 Stampin’ Up Holiday Catalog. It is my new favorite for sure. If you love to color, then this set is for YOU! It’s so beautiful. I thought I’d share a few more swaps that I received that also used this set:

The one above is designed by Kelly Acheson. It doesn’t show all that well in the photograph, but all the black parts are black embossed. And I’m totally in love with the new corrugated paper. Have you see it?

This colorful one was designed by Linda Heller. I love the layering. And the Cherry Cobbler baker’s twine layered on the Hello Honey linen ribbon? Beautiful… and something I would have never thought to do!

Finally, below is one more card… this was actually my Founder’s Circle “reject” card. And while I don’t hate it, it just wasn’t “enough” I guess for me swap with the top 100. It must be because the coloring wouldn’t have been so intense… or perhaps because it would have been waaay easier! 😉 I still really like this one, too, though:

What do you think? Did I make the right choice? I don’t know… now that I’m looking at it again, I kind of like this one, too. And, I don’t really think it would have been too much easier — that white embossed frame would have had to be hand cut!

Anyway, you can find all the supplies I used on my Founder’s Circle card below (the top card in this post).
