Bloggers Challenge ~ Designer Series Paper Challenge

I'm still making swaps... Well, by now I'm swapping my swaps!

This beautiful card is mainly about the raspberry tart designer series paper. Out of all the cards I made for swapping, I'm most proud of this one. It's not that it took more time. It just does "it" for me. :)
First, I embossed the sentiment on whisper white paper, and embossed the ice cream on designer series paper. Letting the swirl pattern show through. Then, i laid crystal effects on the glass and let that dry. I used a 2 way glue pen to adhere that to the white scallop and layered a rose red scallop behind it. The background of my card... Maybe you can see the hearts? Well that's the new trio punch that will be available from your demonstrator on January 19th. I just used glue dots to adhere the hearts on. I just used a pair of snips to cut the excess of the sides.
This card is so much fun and was fun to make. It didn't take that long to make 12 of them... So it's cute AND it didn't take forever to make! A keeper for sure! :) Thanks for checking this out. Please also check out the fantastic work of the other bloggers who take the weekly challenge! I think you'll agree their work is top notch!
