After all the finalists were notified about the Artisan Award, we decided to have a card swap at convention. If you've participated in a swap before, you know there is always a certain amount of anxiety involved. Is my card good enough? Will people like it? Well, imagine having to swap with Artisan finalists!
I decided to re-create my tree card with current Stampin' Up product for the swap. So, I made 25 of these babies! (19 for the finalists and a few for Shelli and the team from SU) I actually liked the way this one turned out better than the one I submitted for the contest.
And here is some exciting news.....I created a video to show you how I made it! I am hoping that I'll be able to do more videos now that the kids are in school. I'll be giving away the card that I created in the video to one lucky viewer. Simply leave a comment here, on YouTube, or on my Facebook page. One person will be selected at random on August 31st to receive the card.
