Card kit swop - Part II
You may remember a few days ago when I mentioned my card kit swop with Elaine from her Craft my life blog. Well, this is the card I made and sent to her with the same bits and bobs I used to make my card. I can show it now that she has made up her card as the whole point is you're not supposed to see the other card till after you've made yours from the kit.
I used (and sent to Elaine)
6x6 white scalloped card and envelope
1 A4 sheet of purple card
1 A4 sheet of lilac/white check paper
6x6 piece of white card
4 images of newton bear that were coloured with promarkers (I decoupaged mine)
Small piece of purple grossgrain ribbon
6 pieces of purple card candy
I scored and folded my card blank as I wanted to make an easel card. I then mounted the lilac check paper onto the white card and then added the purple ribbon round the centre before mounting it onto the purple card. I cut out all my newton bear bits and layered him up which I stuck onto the middle of my square. I added this to the top part of my easel card. I then cut out another square of lilac check paper which I stuck to the bottom of my easel card. I mounted my chocolate sentiment onto the bottom centre of the card. As a finishing touch I added some purple stickles glitter glue to the chocolate wrappers, some glossy accents to the chocolatey bits on newtons hands and face and 3 bits of card candy to the top and bottom of the card.
Below is the card that Elaine has made with my kit:-
