It's almost time for the Royal blog tour…

In between preparing for the tour, I have been trying to get ready for my first convention. I signed up for so many swaps, I have been madly working away. And now have all my formal swaps done and just need to work on the casual swaps. I hear folks moaning they only have 51 done, or 72 and I am thinking , ok so I have none. Well that is no longer true. I now have one done. But my photographer says he want dinner so I will show you the card i designed for the Shoebox Swap last weekend with my uber-upline, Heather.

This card evolved from a desire to use up some of the envelopes for sending business checks in. I just happen to have an almost full case of them. So I decided to make them narrower and cover the window with dsp. they ended up the same size and shape as our small open ended envelopes by Stampin’ Up!. Then of course I had to design a card to go inside. My card uses our new Christmas hostess set and our gold embossing powder, gold cardstock and the satin organdy ribbon on a red and white base.
