When I got your card, Calluna, I wondered how you would have done 20+ cards with the same dictionary words on them! I thought you must have had an abundance of dictionaries to cut up. Wink It never occurred to me that the words could be different  let alone the entire card!

I forgot to take many process pics, but I think I got one! I still have components, I guess I could make my emergency cards and take pics of those. Smiley

Sent today, in a smattering of random cards and envelopes!
On a side note: After finishing my cards, I'm swearing off making tiny ______ ever again. My gosh. (I censored myself for surprise factor!)

Just realized I think I'm one completed card short. Darn it! Good thing I have extra pieces ready to assemble. Smiley Hopefully mailing by Friday!

I finished as many cards as I need for this swap, but I have four extras I was making (just in case) that I'm slacking on finishing. My hubby said he wanted one, so I figured I'd make a few for my "fans"! Haha. Gonna mail out soon hopefully, and cross my fingers that nothing falls off! One element is questionable, but as long as they're wrapped I'm hoping it'll stay in place.

I left the hardest part for last, but the rest of my cards are done! Woohoo!

I would love to do this if it works timing-wise. I'm in Canada but I'm an hour from the border, so I usually know someone going across every few weeks who could pick up a box, and I could have one shipped to the border store.

If it happens in July, I'm doing a little road trip through the US, so perhaps it would line up that I could ship when I go down and pick up on the way home...

I've just always wanted to do one of these swaps and it's never lined up for me, so apologies for thinking out loud here! Smiley

Lots of progress made yesterday! The photo I'm using is from a year or so ago, and I realized I was wearing the same shirt yesterday as I was making them. Weird!

I am still in the planning stage! I have two ideas I'm deciding between and can't pick one. I think I'll have to make a few of each through to completion and hang on to one idea for the next round. Smiley

I didn't think to take many process photos, but let me tell you, I am never making tiny bunting ever again! Oof!

First I cut the blue backgrounds and coloured layovers on my Silhouette. I stamped the blue background with a chevron stamp, and sprayed them all with a bit of glitter mist. Glued on the chevron patterned paper and edged with gold marker. Cut out oodles of pics of myself by hand while watching a movie, and glued those on.

And... the bunting. My word. I started by cutting a TON of tiny diamonds on my Silhouette, and then folding and gluing each one around a piece of embroidery thread, in the same colour pattern for each card.

Then the bunting was attached with the little gemstone stickers, and hopefully none fell off in transit! I had a couple that didn't want to stick at first.
