If you are a frequenter of my website you know that my local downline group meets frequently and we always swap something. We changed this year to 3x4 inch swaps.
Today I took the time to make my mini cards into grown up full sized cards. See the minis here.
i thought the originals were pretty darn cute alone and didn't need a lot of fuss to turn them into standard 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch cards.
For the Hooray card, I added an embossed layer in Melon Mambo to a white card base. I used a scrap of the Pop of Pink paper I had and turned it into a belly band and attached my 3x4 swap to it using dimentionals. Made for a pretty darn quick and pretty darn cute card.
For the Fiesta card, I used the solid print of the backside of the Fiesta designer paper and added just a small strip of another of the Fiesta paper to really, it anchors the 3x4 swap to the card base and keeps it from looking like it was floating.
I then fussy cut (boy I have been doing a lot of fussy cutting lately) a guitar out of the Fiesta designer paper and popped it on with a dimensional. I love the darling fiesta feel of this card.
I still have more swaps I got, to grow them up into full sized cards, but for today, I got my own swaps completed.
