Shaded Summer 'Some friendships are just meant to be' Greeting Card. Pootlers Team Swap June 2021

Good Morning Everyone,

Happy Friday! Today I have a fabulous blog post today.  As you know I'm part of the Pootlers Team, and each time we get a mew catalogue we do a physical swap.  We are put into groups of 7 and then we had to design a card, make it for the 6 other in the group and send it out. These swaps are such a great Idea to help get inspiration for the new products, but also just to say Hi.

Here's the cards I made, for my swaps. I'll show you how I  made them once I have shared everyone elses fabulous creations

Janice Thomson - Jazzle Dazzle Crafts

Janice has used the Expressions in Ink Suite for this beautiful card. I love to Gold, it really does look fabulous with the green.

Gez Carpenter - Nigezza Creates

Gez has also used the Artistically Inked bundle and Expressions in Ink paper, in fact the same die cut, sentiment and piece of DSP which looks amazing also. This just goes to show that there's so many different looks and finishes you can create with the same suite.

Tina Ehlich - Tina's Kreativ Box

Tina has used the Colour & Contour bundle, along with some of our new in colours and created this fabulous card with some beautiful blending

Valerie Broomfield - Valerie's Handmade Gifts

Valerie has used the gorgeous Elegantly Said stamp set, coordinating Simply Said DSP and some metallic card stock  and the tailored tag punch to create this fun and bold card.

Amber Shodja - Stampin Oasis

Amber has made this fabulous card using the Pansy Petals Suite, which I adore. You pull up the white panel to reveal your message. It's really sweet, and then the wood decoration is just so adorable. I will definitely be trying out this style of card.

Jane Charlotte Dandelion Wishes

Jane has created this bookbinder fold card decorated with the super cute Party puffins and the Pansy Petals DSP

Vickie Littlewood - Vickie Lou Designs

So here's a quick 'How To' for the card I made.

Measurements (per card)

Card Stock

1pc - 4 1/8" x 11 3/4", scored at 5 7/8"

Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

1pc - 2 7/8" x 1 7/8"

Take your card stock and fold along the score line to create a card base. Stamp the flowers in the same colour ink as your card stock to cover the whole of the card front. Once the ink is dry 'colour' the flower heads in with you wink of stella.

On the larger piece of basic white, stamp the flower in opposite corners in the same colour ink as you used above and add this to the inside of the card.

Stamp the flower image fully, but towards the bottom of the remaining piece of basic white in Polished Pink ink. add the sentiment in Evening Evergreen then add this to the card front.

It's a really quick and easy card to make, the design is great and you can easily make a batch of these in minutes.
