Jar of Love Birthday Team Swap

Good Day Crafty Friends

Our team had its monthly team get together a few weekends ago, and we all had to case a card, colour scheme, layout etc from the new Annual Catalogue.

As easy as that sounds for most, I have difficulty casing cards as I usually don't like all the elements. I can easily be turned off a cards layout and design elements simply due to choice of colours/combos. 

After flicking a few pages in I found the perfect colour combo I wanted to use on my swap card. There were others but until my new shipment of card stock arrives my choices were limited when cutting for ten full cards.

I had seen the Jar of Love and Heart from the Sunshine Wishes bundles used together by fellow SU demonstrator Ilina Crouse so I decided to use this concept and a colour scheme from the catalogue.

Using a Sweet Sugar Plum card base I added a layer of Soft Sky and Lemon Lime Twist card stock with tombow. The Whisper White card front was embossed using the Hexagon Dynamics EF.  I clear heat embossed the heart die cut using Versamark and the  Sunshine Wishes Thinlits. 

The flowers and leaves were stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and Sweet Sugar Plum, then die cut using Jar of Love Bundle. I also cut a strip of Sweet Sugar Plum card stock using the Heart border die from Jar of Love to tuck behind the sentiment. The little flower die cut from Softy Sky is made using the Paisley & Poises Framelits, I thought it needed the touch of blue to coordinate with the sentiment card stock. The Happy Birthday greeting is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.


The card on the right was picked by Tracey Wilson. I adore the colours and the simple background stamp. I loved Tracey's card so much I changed my wish list and ordered the Falling Flowers Bundle!

Until next time, stay crafty x
