Merci Shoebox Swap Card

Published by at 6:16 pm under My Creations

Hello!! I hope you all had a great weekend! I had the fun opportunity in going to the Southwestern Idaho Shoebox Swap (SWISS) on Saturday! What a blast! I met SO many awesome people! Thanks for being so fun! I got to hang with my Rach and I got to meet  Amy, Julee (the owner of Verve Visual…how cool is that!) , Christina and so many more! This is the card that I made for my swap!





Stamps: Grow a Garden (Basic Grey) Merci (Inkadinkado)

Ink: Jet Black Stazon, Green Galore, So Saffron, Pink Passion, Tempting Turquoise (Stampin’ Up!)

Cardstock: Pink Passion, Whisper white, So Saffron (Stampin’ up!)

Designer Paper: Pinstripe (American Crafts)

Accessories: Ribbon (May Arts) Flowers (Prima) Pewter Brads, Paper Piercing Tool, Black Journaler, Corner Rounder (Stampin’ Up!)


I had originally made this card 6 x 3 3/4″ but it seemed too long, something was missing. So I cut it town to about 4 1/4 x 3 1/4″. I thought it was ok, since it still fits in an envelope…right? Lol! :) I’ve had fun with this grow a garden set!


Just a few things! I am having a MINI sale in my store. Just a few things, some Basic Grey ect. are on sale! AND just a reminder for the Design Team call! Many entries are coming in and they look AWESOME! Thank you ladies! You have until the 25th! Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great day!!
