Another Swap Card and News

This is a card I made for the Great Swaps Girls Any Size/Shape But A2 swap. I love these little circle cards!
I cut out my circle, purposely leaving a flat side where the fold would be if you made a full card (our swaps are for fronts). I cut strips of Summer Picnic dsp, attached them, and trimmed the excess. I added brads, ribbon, a sentiment, and some piercing for details. The apple body is cut out and popped up for dimension. I would have put CE on the apple to make it shiny, but it always turns red ink pink. Does anybody know if heat setting red ink prevents this? I'm going to try it and find out. One of these days.

And for the news: I am going to be a contributor to Natasha Trupp's new blog Clean & Simple Stamping! I am very excited and can't wait to get started!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
stamps - Tart & Tangy, Absolutely Fabulous
paper - chocolate, ww, summer picnic dsp
ink - real red, chocolate, choc & olive markers
acc - circle cutter, silver brads, olive twill, mat pack and piercer, dimensionals

Love your circle card Becky!! The popped up apple is perfect too. You know, you could always emboss Real Red Craft ink with clear EP to get the shine that CE would give without changing the red to pink. Just a thought!
