Syracuse NY Regional Shoe Box Swap

We have so many events planned around the fabulous all-day Stampin' Up! Regional Convention this coming Friday!  I can't believe how much we're packing into just 2 short days!  One of the fun things I'm getting ready for is a shoe box swap Friday night after the Regional and after a very special dinner!  Here's the swap I'm bringing with me:

My card base is my favorite color — Old Olive.  I layered on three strips of card stock in Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise and Dusty Durango that have first been run through the Big Shot using the Textured Impressions Folder Perfect Polka Dots.  I rounded the bottom corners with the 3/16" Corner Rounder and under the Dusty Durango strip, tucked a piece of Crushed Curry punched out with the Scallop Circle Punch.  The present is from Holiday Blitz stamp set, and I stamped it in Melon Mambo and added some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter with a 2-Way Glue Pen.  That image is backed with Old Olive punched with a 1-3/8" Circle Punch.  The package image is on Dimensionals.  The "h" is a piece of chipboard and Basic Black card stock run through the Big Shot using the Alphabet Simple Letters die.  I know that this set of dies is a real investment, but I can honestly say that there isn't any other die that I use more often!  It's so handy having any letter you want at your finger tips!  And cut in virtually any material you can think of!  I added 3 Silver Brads to the leg of the "h" then mounted it to the card with Mini Glue Dots.  The sentiment comes from A Little Birthday Cheer stamp set and I just slid the "h" under the big "h".  I finished off the card by tying a piece of Crushed Curry 1/2" Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon around the entire card. 

There'll be over 50 people gathered for this shoe box swap!  I hope everyone has fun making this card!  Can't wait to show you all the cards I'll be making — stay tuned!
