The Swarm went great yesterday... and boy! you should have seen the cards that the ladies made yesterday! They were stunning! I wish that I had taken photos to show you. They were all worth showing. Next time I'll be sure to take photos and share their creations with you.
This is a card that I made as an example for the ladies using my new Serenade cart. I don't know what you call this type of card..I'm going to call it a slider, 'cos that's what it does- the large panel slides inside the stand. I used papers from papermania Honey & Hugs collection. I made the base boxy part of the card from sturdy card, scored it, cut out a slot for the slider, then folded and adhered it. The slider needs to be put into the slot before final construction, although the panel and box can be decorated before construction. I cut all the panels, matted onto pink cardstock then adhered to the box base. I did the same with the large panel, and added a birdcage cut from silver mirri with a little yellow bird inside. I added some punched flowers, and a bow and flower to the top of the cage. I cut the sentiment from yellow glitter card shadowed with pink, then adhered ' U R' to the main panel and 'so tweet!' to the edge of the front panel adhering only the bottom half of the letters. I finished the flowers with blue gems.
Bird & cage- serenade
'U R so tweet!'- All Mixed Up
Thanks for looking!
