Swapping Blooms

I'm in this big swap every mini. I really struggle with swaps, especially the big ones. I don't know why making the same card over and over just drives me nuts... it's torture. The only thing that gets me through is that I KNOW all of the swaps I get back are amazing. My customers LOVE them. ;) This one was 42. I didn't have enough paper, so I made another very similar, except for the paper and wheel color. I really loved this one, until I had to do another with different paper, and then the other one had pink. I'm torn, but I like them both and I hope the other swappers like them too.

This card uses the "
Mish Closure". My friend Michelle Wooderson is the master mind behind this cool card fold. She is totally amazing. You just cut your card stock 4 1/4 by 11, fold in half, then cut off 1.5 inches off the top of one end. Cover the back with a strip of designer paper, then use your slit punch in the middle and pushed all the way in. Make your front piece, then add your adhesive to the bottom portion, stick it under the slit punch and you are done. Card open and closes from the top, under the slit punch. People really love these when I send them in the mail. Give it a try... you'll be surprised how easy and addictive this style of card is.
