August Swap Cards

Once again, this month I entered into a swap on Facebook.  This was the second month I joined this one.  In this swap, you are assigned a swap partner.  This way you only have to make one card to send.  The twist with it is there is a sweepstakes winner for every swap.  There is no theme to the sweepstakes card.   Yes, this actually means two cards are sent, but it's not like the one I send out 12 cards.  The object of this swap is to use Stampin' Up! products on your cards.  If you don't have a lot of Stampin' Up! products you can use products from other companies.  Everything I used is from Stampin' Up!

The Theme for August was KIDS.  Anything about or for kids.  I thought this cute lion card would be perfect.  I used the Floral Frames Framelits to make his mane.  The larger one is actually the card base.  I used some circle punches for the face and an oval punch for the feet.  I just love the way he turned out.

 For the sweepstakes winner, I used my Flower Shop Bundle to make the flowers.  I embossed my card front with a retired embossing folder and sponged over it with Old Olive ink to look like vines.  The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Banners Stamp set and cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits set.
