Swing Card

Hey everyone, Life has been busy yet again....become a habit which I am not keen on as I am not getting to my craft desk. I have tonight though. A friend has asked me to make a card for her Grandmother's 90th impressive is that. The 90 that is. :-) I decided to have a go at a Swing Card which is what we are swapping this month over at Craftmad. I am having a practise run as we haven't found out our partners yet. I found a tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers. I have used burgandy coloured card for the base card. I have embossed this beautiful paper with the Cuttlebug Victoria embossing folder. I have also added these lovely butterfly and wavy border stickers and the greeting stickers. All from Sticker Store.

Cuttlebug embossing folder Victoria.

This is the inside of the card. A friend had gold embossed these lovely roses for me years ago. Been waiting for that special occasion. I have coloured them with my watercolour pencils and embellished with this beautiful lace from Scrap Therapy. Finished with some more lovely butterfly stickers from Sticker Store. I would really love to hear if you think this card needs a little something as I am thinking something extra would be great.

Have a wonderful weekend all. I probably won't be around for a week. This weekend is Relay for Life and next week I think I have a full and busy week....will just have to see what comes about on Monday.


  1. OH I LOVE this card, very cool!!!

  2. Great card, she will love it!

  3. WOW 90! I hope I'm still around crafting at 90. She's a winner already. Your card for her is gorgeous. The roses are beautiful. Maybe some roses down the front side of the card?? But I think she'll love it just the way it is.
    Have a great weekend Merry.
