Thailand Swap card

At pretty much every Stampin’ Up! event there is some swapping going on.  What does that mean?  Well each person swapping will design a card (or whatever is being swapped), then make a specific number of them, turn them in to a coordinator, who then divides them up among those participating so that you get back one of everyone else’s card.  The Thailand Incentive Trip also includes a swap.  Now I haven’t been on one of these big Incentive Trips before so this is my first one and I wasn’t sure what to do for a swap.

I decided I wanted to tie it in to our trip a little bit and in looking at the resort and the rooms that we are getting the color of the decor is purple – so that’s what I wanted to use.  And then there is gold.  I wanted different shades of purple for my swap.

I used the Pattern Party Decorative Masks – the big medallion mask is what I used.  On a placed it over a piece of Whisper White card stock and then used Sponge Daubers and ink to add different shades of color.  Starting from the center I used Fresh Fig, Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Sugarplum.

I heat embossed with gold the sentiment Just a Note which is from the Soft Sayings card kit stamp set.  I die cut that with the Bunch of Banners Framelits.  I also cut a Gold Foil Banner and then glued those together.  I layered on a piece of Fresh Fig card stock and added some Fresh Fig 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon.  And a Gold Faceted Gem to the center of the medallion. It was all put on a Thick Whisper White card stock base.

I hope everyone likes my card – I made 26 for the swap – that was a lot of sponging!
