SAB Swap Card

This card uses several of the new Sale-A-Bration product - the paper is Delicate Dots Designer Series Paper, the ribbon is the Saffron 5/8" Grosgrain from the Ribbon Bundle, the heart image is from Polka Dot Punches stamp set and the 'with love' sentiment is from Yummy stamp set. Any one of these are FREE with a $50 order from now until March 31st.

I used an Almost Amethyst card stock base for this vintage-card. The layers of Delicate Dots DSP are sponged and crimped and wrinkled. The new Eyelet Border Punch is across the bottom of the center strip and the Trio Flower Punch with some Silver Brads to add a few extra flowers here and there. I sponged the edges with a Sponge Dauber and So Saffron ink.

I stamped the heart image from Polka Dot Punches in Whisper White Craft ink on another piece of the Delicate Dots DSP and then heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder. The image is punched out with the new Full Heart Punch and layered over the same piece stamped on Almost Amethyst cardstock. I used Stampin' Dimensionals between these layers and pierced the hat pin with pearls/beads from the Pretties Kit through one of the Stampin' Dimensionals to anchor it. The sentiment is also stamped in Whisper White Craft ink and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder and comes from another Sale-A-Bration set called Yummy. I punched it out with the big 1 3/4" Circle Punch and tucked it behind the center strip.

Another element of texture on this card is the Whisper White Textured cardstock that is layered under the So Saffron Grosgrain ribbon. The ribbon is one of the two rolls from the Sale-A-Bration Ribbon Bundle. The other roll is a Certainly Celery Twill ribbon.

The inside of this card is just a piece of Whisper White Textured cardstock with a strip of the coordinating heart print pattern paper, again from Delicate Dots DSP.

Great way to use the crimper! It was the first tool I bought from SU! and I thought I was going to get so much use out of it... Didn't turn out that way, unfortunately. I am always on the lookout for new ideas!
