Occasions Mini Swap Card

You guys are so sweet! Thanks for all the nice comments regarding my last post. Here is the card I made for a recent swap with my group (see who they are on the left bar). It took a lot of cutting, but the end result was worth it! And I used Mono Multi again and managed not to destroy anything, woohoo!
The two flower blooms are mounted with dimensionals, as is the little butterfly. I used CE and dazzling diamonds in the centers, too.

Supplies:
stamps - Live Your Dream
paper - sky, choc textured, guava, ww, afternoon tea dsp
ink - choc, wasabi, sky, guava
acc - spiral punch; wasabi grosgrain; 1-3/8" , 1-1/4", 1/2" circle punches; dimensionals; CE; dazzling diamonds

Hi Becky! My jaw dropped when I saw this because I just made a card with this EXACT layout, and the same set, just different colors!

I was scrolling through google reader and thought "oh, somebody case'd me. wait, I haven't uploaded that card yet!"

Hope everything is going well today! Thinking about you a lot!

SO very beautiful, I just love it! My favorite is the way you used the lines behind the words on the circle tag and added the circle and the butterfly. Great details, gorgeous card!

Kristin said...

I guess great minds think alike (you and Krystie!). Seriously, this card is just stunning in real life- way to go. I can't believe you took on all that cutting for a good sized swap- superwoman!

Lisa said...

This is WONDERFUL! I love every little detail... the colors, the cut-out flowers (TOTALLY worth it, BTW!) and especially the little circle sentiment and butterfly... genius! And you go girl, showing that Mono Multi who's boss! LOL ;)

PS - I hope you don't mind, but I tagged you on my blog. :)
