Convention Swap Card 2013

CRAZY BUSY!!!!

with all the last minute things....ok, like packing which OF COURSE I waited till the last minute to do.  At least everything is clean and I am DONE with laundry, just need to get it all into the suitcase now!

It is a tradition at CTMH conventions to SWAP.  All sorts of things get swapped but mostly it is cards.  After getting sick over Memorial Day Weekend and then spending every waking moment of the following three weeks working on my contest album I had pretty much resigned myself to NOT being able to participate in this fun activity this year.

Well.....I finished my album with FIVE days to spare!!!!  On Friday I decided to put together a card and see how many I could get done.....I actually finished 60 of them!  

Now....feeling guilty that I didn't make anything handmade for my convention room mates......Let's see....21 hours left....hmmmm


card base & CTMH Creme Brulee' topper are cut at 4.25 x 5.5
The topper was put through the Cuddlebug using the "lattice work" embossing folder
I used CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to cut all pieces
CTMH Pacifica Medallion cut @ 3.5"
CTMH Smoothie flower cut @ 2.75"
CTMH Creme Brulee' flower cut @ 2.25"
CTMH Crystal Blue flower cut @ 2"

The Crystal Blue flower is stamped with Pacifica using the stamp set that comes with the Art Philosophy cartridge.  I changed the center by adding a 1" circle stamped using B1417 Perfect Fit-Birthday Occasions (SHOWN) or "Thank You" from B1362 Tag The Occasion (unavailable)

I direct glued all pieces except I used foam tape for the creme brulee' & the crystal blue flowers for demension.  As I layered the pieces I edged everything with stardust glitz.
