Sweet Citrus Bundle CASE for a Team Shoebox Swap


sweet citrus bundle for a team shoebox swap

I should never, ever look at Pinterest! When I see something I love, I just can't get it out of my head and nothing else looks good after I see it. That was the case with Tammy Wilson's card with the Sweet Citrus Bundle! I was dying to play with that bundle and when I saw her card, nothing else would do, including almost all the elements she used! I did change a few things but not much so thanks to Tammy, I used this card for my team's Shoebox Swap that we did yesterday. We had a lot of fun doing it! We like to get together in person at least once a quarter, and because of the new mini catalogue, I suggested that each of us design a card and cut enough material so that the rest could each make one and include it, along with the stamps and equipment needed, in a shoebox sized bin and bring it to the meeting. At the meeting, as we discussed business and chatted, we swapped all the boxes and ended up making 4 other cards besides our own. Here are all the other cards and their creators, all members of my Papercraft Cats team :

  • I used Basic White Thick cardstock for the card base, then embossed a piece of regular Basic White cut at 5 3/8" x 4 1/8" with the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder and mounted it on the card front.
  • I cut a 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" piece of Basic White and ran it through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the second largest Stitched with Whimsey Die. Then I blended some Polished Pink ink on it using a blending brush and adhered it to the card front.
  • On a quarter sheet of Basic White, I blended Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo, again using blending brushes. I made sure to have darker and lighter areas, areas where the two colours blended together, and some small areas I left white.

  • Using the Sweet Citrus Hybrid Embossing Folder with the Dies, I placed the cardstock inside, adjusting it so that the paper lay in the best places, then ran it through the Cut & Emboss.
  • I stamped 3 sets of leaves in Granny Apple Green and die cut them with the coordinating dies.
  • I arranged the embossed and cut pieces on the card front as shown and adhered them using glue dots and dimensionals.
  • The sentiment from the stamp set is stamped with Memento ink on a 1/2" wide strip and then cut into 3 pieces which are then adhered to the card front as shown.
  • The last step is to add embellishments. I used Opal Rounds and Rhinestones.
