GoDivas New Catalog Swap: 25 Again

Good afternoon!  I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July!  This is a little late in posting as my son had an accident on his bike this morning but he's home and resting now, very thankful.  With the release of each new catalog one of the things demonstrators love to do is card swaps.  If you're not familiar with these, each demonstrator makes a set amount of cards with the same design and then we send them in and we get a package back in the mail with one each of the cards that all the demonstrators made.  It's a great way to have a variety of card ideas for inspiration and shows a wide variety of stamp sets from the catalog (especially good when you don't purchase all the sets on your wish list on day 1, haha!)  So this was the card I made for the GoDivas 2018-2019 Annual catalog swap and there were 35 demonstrators participating and since it uses the 25 Again stamp set it's perfect to show this week since it's my featured Product of the Week.

For this card I started with Cherry Cobbler cardstock for the cardbase and then added Crumb Cake for the cardfront and embossed it with the Big Shot and Maps Etc. Embossing Folder.  I used a piece of the Best Route Designer Series Paper (one of the paper packages that's part of July's DSP sale) and matted it with Crushed  Curry cardstock.

For the main stamped image I used the 25 Again stamp set and stamped the box two box pieces and matches in Momento Black Ink.  The greeting was stamped in Blueberry Bushel ink.  Then I used my Stampin' Blends, Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, and Smoky Slate to color in the image.  Once that was finished I used Basic Gray cardstock for a mat.  Before attaching the stamped piece to the Crumb Cake 3/8" Classic Weave Ribbon to peak out the side and used dimensionals to attach the stamped piece to the cardfront.

This is just a fun cheeky saying that's perfect for friends as we get a little older but stay young at heard and is a mix of old and new items.
