Swappers Anonymous Christmas

I love swapping with my SA sisters! Their cards and projects are top-notch, and they have all become dear friends.

I worried about this card, I tell ya. I fell in love with this set when I first saw it in the catalog at Convention! But then, when I had it in my hands, I couldn't figure out a layout. I thought about separating the smaller sentiment, but then couldn't do it. I thought about changing sets for the swap. LOL But I took it as a personal challenge to make this a card my SA sisters would love! And really, what is the secret ingredient????? You all know.

GLITTER! Red Chunky glitter to be exact. And I used almost the whole container on this swap. LOL

My beloved Big Shot came to my rescue. That Top Note die rocks! It was the perfect size! Do you think they planned that???? Anyway, I layered on some of the gorgeous Holiday Treasures DSP, which I think makes it look richer. The corners are punched with the Ticket Corner punch to make way for the gold brads. The striped Riding Hood Red grosgrain is accented with little twists of elastic gold cord (yay to have it back in the Mini Catalog!) to pull it all together. Merry Christmas, Swappers Anonymous Sisters!
