Today was our bi-monthly team get together for a 'shoebox' swap.
Due to other family commitments, we had a smaller group than usual but this meant that once we had created each others swaps and those for those joining in by post, we had time to have 'creative play-time' using new goodies that had arrived yesterday !!
It's always lovely catching up with members of the team, sharing our love of crafting. We had lots of fun and enjoyed creating another project I will be sharing with you on Monday.
For my swap, I waited to create until my delivery box arrived yesterday, but having my sketched design already planned. I have used the cute Little Elephant bundle #148338(W) #148340(C). Purchasing together as a bundle, there is a 10% saving.
My card was made using a Soft Sea Foam base which is a new colour. The mat layer is Mossy Meadow, an old favourite of mine which I was pleased to see returning too. The top Whisper White layer has been embossed using Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #144687.
The hearts and elephants have been stamped with Mossy Meadow ink. I love that there is a coordinating punch for the elephants, then the hearts were 'fussy-cut' by hand and raised onto Stampin' Dimensionals #104430 and Mini Stampin' Dimensionals #144108. I attached strings of Whisper White Solid Bakers Twine #124262 to make them look like balloons.
