Being the Queen is Magnifique!

Each time we get a new Catalog the gals in my group have a shoebox swap. What is a shoebox swap you might ask? Well it is where we each design a card, in this case using only new products, and we prepare enough supplies for all of the participants and put it all in a "shoebox". then we all meet and pass the shoeboxes around the table so we can make each other's cards. It is a great way to get to use lots of the new products without having to buy everything. The ladies in my group are all so talented that I look forward to the shoebox swap every time.

This is the card I created for our shoebox swap.
And here is a close up of the tag.

Here is the recipe:
Based on Aubrey’s Invitation from pg. 81 of Wishes
4 ¼” x 5 ½” Chocolate card base
4” x 9” Colonial White (Score at 3 ½ “ for pocket)
2 ½” x 5 Colonial white tag
2 ¼ “ x 4” Magnifique Floral pattern (top of pocket)
3 ½” x 4” Magnifique Stripe (bottom of pocket)
2 ¼” x 3” Colonial White x2 for Crown (stamp crown on one and cut out, stamp sentiment on one and pop up crown)
2 ½” x 3 ¼” Pacifica for crown mat

Attach floral pattern to top of pocket
Fold up flap to create pocket
Attach Magnifique stripe to pocket front
Use clear ruler to punch holes for stitching on sides of pocket
Whip stitch using chocolate waxy flax up both sides of pocket
Attach pocket to card base
Stamp crown using lagoon ink and cut out
Stamp birthday sentiment on 2nd colonial white piece using chocolate ink towards the bottom
Mat with Pacifica
Pop up crown above sentiment and add sparkles

Punch corners of tag using corner chomper
Stamp scepter on the left side using Pacifica for handle and Lagoon for gem
Stamp sentiment to right of scepter using Lagoon and Chocolate
Add Liquid Glass to gem
Add sparkles to scepter and sentiment
I post the cards created by the rest of the group in a later post. Thanks for looking.
