Hey…did you notice? Create with Connie and Mary has a NEW LOOK for the Holidays and I have the new badge on my blog!!! We've opened our Early Bird Special Price savings, too! Go check it out!
I wanted to show off my Control Freaks New Catalog Swap that I participated in a couple months ago…right before Convention. I got the idea from my upline, Candy, to use this swing template for my card. I hadn't made one in years, and the set I selected for the swap, Bootiful Occasions, was perfect for it! Here is the view closed.
And, here is the view open!
The base is Cherry Cobbler, cut to 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 2 3/4 & 5 1/2. Fold in half, then fold the front part back on itself. I added a strip of Be of Good Cheer Designer Paper along the right edge. I used the 3 1/2" Circle to cut out the front half circle by only partially running it thru the Big Shot, then cut a 3" Circle of the DSP to fit inside. I also used the Perfect Polka Dots on the half folded in front.
I stamped the Christmas Boot in Black Stazon on Very Vanilla and colored with Cherry Cobbler and Sahara Sand Stampin' Write Markers and my AquaPainter. I added Dazzling Details to the cuff and tassels. I punched it out with the 2 1/2" Circle Punch. I stamped the greeting on Gumball Green and punched with the Large Oval Punch, popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals on the front. I added some Gumball Green Stitched Ribbon tied along the front piece.
On the inside, I also added a greeting from More Merry Messages in Black Stazon on Gumball Green and punched with the 2 1/2" Circle. I love these motion cards…so much fun!
I'm getting ready to send in an order for more RIBBON SHARES…most shares are almost full. If you want in, email me…another order will be placed on Wednesday evening!
