To Swap or Not to Swap?

We’re busy mailing swaps and Sweet Treats and cleaning out Ann’s office.  (The white hair on the navy futon CAN’T be mine, can it?)

Now, you can make multi-layer, drop dead gorgeous display worthy cards for these swaps or you can do cards that their friends will actually make.

Well, you might not make this one, but if your school colors are blue and yellow, you might!

Graduation Card

Card Making Tips

  1. I think it’s important – with graduation AND wedding cards – to color coordinate them with the event.  It’s something that easy to do when you expand your collection of ink pads.
  2. If we weren’t doing so many, the new Enamel Shapes would make a nice addition with a star or two in Crushed Curry.
  3. With this one, it’s all about where that star is flying in from!  The one above wasn’t the best one, but we soon learned that the star looked best flying in from the bottom left.

How do I know this?

Because this next shot is of the first card we made.  For some reason, it just doesn’t look as good to me.

  1. I agree the star shooting from the left is the better choice. It’s a cool card. I like it a lot but I’m not a big fan of anything yellow.

    • Me neither, Jan. Yellow is about my least favorite. But what other color would you make a star?
