Convention swap for Gretchen


My dear friend Gretchen Vernon is going to the Stampin' Up convention in just 10 days, and is so busy with kids and family that she hasn't had time to complete any swaps to take along. So I just spent the last 4 hours at her house, and made 20 cardfronts of this design for her!


All products used are Stampin' Up. The card base is River Rock cardstock, and layered on this is a piece of Groovy Guava cardstock stamped with the Print Pattern background in Versamark. I stamped the image from the new set Garden Silhouettes in Always Artichoke, "stamping off" several times as I worked to give the wildflower scene depth. "Warm Wishes" is stamped above in Gold Metallic Encore ink. I sponged River Rock ink around the edges, then mounted this piece on Always Artichoke cardstock. A piece of Mellow Moss grosgrain ribbon is tied around the Guava piece, and a swirl clip from Hodgepodge Hardware is attached for a finishing touch! I hope the convention goers that Gretchen swaps this with like it! I'm pleased with how it turned out! Thanks for looking!
