Happy Day Swan Card

Hi everyone! I’m back with a mini slimline card that I created using Eileen Hull’s new Mini Slimline and Tickets Thinlits and a few other of her other products. So let’s get started!

First, I folded a piece of 6″x6″ White Cardstock in half to create a card base. Next I cut a piece of white cardstock slightly smaller than the base of the card, placed into the Tablecloth 3D Embossing Folder and run through the Diecut Machine. I lightly inked the raised embossed areas, placed Foam Pop Dots to the back before placing onto the card base.

I cut one strip of tickets and one background from the Mini Slimline and Tickets Thinlits and adhered the tickets on top of the background.

Next, I glued the tickets onto the card base.

I had received this swan medallion in a swap I had participated a couple of years ago and instead of hoarding it I decided I would use it on the card. I did change the sentiment that was on it by placing a “happy day” sticker over the other sentiment. I glued the medallion off center of the card.

I dug into my stash of flowers and leaves, I had cut these from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits, I shaped and glued two of the flowers on top of each other along with a sequin and a gem and added leaf sprigs before adhering to the corner of the medallion. Side note…why does it seem like when you photograph something you never see if there is a piece of fussy or in this case a hair attached until after all photos are taken and you are editing and you can’t do anything about it? Why?

But anyways, there you have it! A finished card! If you haven’t been by Eileen’s blog lately to see what her teams have been up to you can find the latest post HERE.
