February Friendship Swap Items – Round Boxes, Dress Form Screen Card, Round 3 x 3 note cards, box envelopes, and bag of goodies.

Some of my friends Tmika, Sheryl, Shanta, and I decided to do a monthly swap.  This will help one keep in the crafting world as she has very little time, and it will help the rest of us use some of our products and maybe even try something different.  Each month one of us gets to choose what the swap will be.  The idea is to keep it small so that it won’t cost a lot to mail.

February was Tmika’s month to choose.  We were to make a card that the others can use, five 3 x 3 cards and envelopes, and include goodies worth $2.  The style was to be shabby chic.  So I made round cards, something I have not done before.

Each card has a different little sentiment on it…thanks, thank you, sorry, hugs, and love you.  Here is a close up view of one…

The dress form screen card is one that I made for a design team project for The Cutting Cafe a few weeks ago…

You can find more detail on it from my February 21st post.  Then, I made a round box to hold the cards.  I used the Round Box Template, also from The Cutting Cafe.

Once I receive my swaps from the ladies, I will share those.  In the meantime, here is a video to give you more details on what I made.  Thanks for stopping by and feel free to subscribe to my YouTube Channel if you have not already done so.

Dress Form Screen Card – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

It is time for another design team project for The Cutting Cafe!  This time we could choose from the Dress Shaped Card, Dress Shaped Card 2, or Fun with Dress Forms which I used.  I love this file as I am a sewer and I love all things dress forms!  I decided to make a screen card.  These type screen are used as room dividers and you often find them in dressing rooms in fancy stores.  I thought a replica of a screen with dress forms was a cute idea.

I decided to use velum for the screen and in the two middle panels, I encased the dress from between two pieces of velum.  On the end panels I put the dress forms on the sides.  Here is a view looking down at it…

I used pearl bling on the front of the card along with some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Alicia’s Glitz and More.  The pearl spray is a piece I have had in my stash my over 20 years.  I am trying to use what I have!

The other panels have a gold dazzle sticker at the top and a white one at the bottom for just a touch of decoration.
