2013 Convention Swap Card

Happy Wednesday My Blogger Friends!
Today I will be sharing the swap card I made for the 2013 Stampin' UP! Convention.  I prepared 175 of these little cuties.....and I handed out all 175 of them.  That means I have 175 swap cards from some of the most talented demonstrators out there.  Here's my card......

I created this cute little swap card using the new "Deco Labels" collection framelits die.  All I did was cut off one end of the label and then rounded the other end and used it as a flower pot.  I used the Polka Dot Parade DSP for the flower pot and the Pansy Punch for my flower.  I coordinated the DSP with the flower and then added a Boho Blossom punch for the center and added a special little Pearl to the center of each flower. 
I also used the "Framed Tulips Embossing Folder for each Whisper White base card.....and the flower stem came from the "Backyard Basics" stamp set.  Each stem was stamped with Gumball Green ink and then I used Clear Embossing Powder and heat set each stem for a little WOW FACTOR on every card.  The "Bitty Butterfly" was punched out with Old Olive cardstock and I created a fun little "Wish Big" banner using the Ticket Duo Builder Punch.
And here is what all 175 of my swap cards look like all packaged up and ready to go into my Convention Bag.  Because I packaged them up so neatly.........they all made it to Salt Lake City without a single bend or fold.  I ended up handing out all but one small box of my swap cards in about one hour.......and then came back to the convention center the next day and handed out the remainder of all my cards. YAHOO........It was a LOT of work putting these little cuties together.....but receiving 175 different swaps in exchange for all that hard work WAS WORTH IT!
 
I'll be back tomorrow to share the Guinness World Record Card that I mailed out from Convention.  Hope you can make plans to stop back and see that card.  Keep Living Your Dream!

OMGoodness....how adorable. You are so talented. I just love the polka dot vases. I love everything about the card. I love the dark center flower which coordinates with the bigger flower. What an eye catcher. And to heat emboss 175 stems...Wow. So nicely done. Love it. Thank you for sharing!
