BoHo Backgrounds Swap Card

This card was for an online stampers group shoebox swap on Friday night of Convention in SLC. Since we didn't have any current Designer Paper to use (it had all been announced as retiring) I made my own by stamping the flower background in Pacific Point blue on Vanilla cardstock. The lighter blue is the beautiful new Baja Breeze In Color and it is stamped with the paisley stamp from the Wanted set. Love these new In Colors!

The Spiral punch on the edges of the red layer gives it interest and visual texture. The floral stamped layer is then added and a Medallion of Real Red on Vanilla layered on a Scallop Circle punched from Pacific Point and anchored with a silver brad grounds the middle of the design. The sentiment is embossed in clear ep over Real Red Craft Ink.

The smaller picture is an alternate design and this sentiment is from the One of A Kind set.

Stamps: BoHo Backgrounds, Wanted, Heard from the Heart (sentiment), new set in catalog
Inks: Pacific Point, Real Red Classic and Craft, Baja Breeze.
Cardstock: Real Red, Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze, Pacific Point
Accessories: Spiral Punch, silver brad, Spiral Punch.

Hope you've had a good weekend!
