While I was at Stampin’ Up’s annual convention last month, I participated in a swap with the other 19 Artisan Finalists. I was really looking forward to that swap — not only getting 19 great cards, but getting to meet the other ladies. It was fun, and the cards were fabulous.
I think I spent more time designing this card than I did any of the five cards I entered in the contest. I didn’t want to embarrass myself, because I knew the others would be so good. This card turned out to be a little more time intensive than I planned (especially when making 24 of them). That was mainly due to the doily die and trying to get all of those little holes punched out. I don’t think I want to use that die again for a long time! I never seemed to mind the extra time that die required until I had to make 24 of them. :)It’s fine when making a single card, but watch out when making multiples.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
