I belong to a group of ladies called Scrappy Girls that do a lot of swaps. They swap tags, cards and books. Since I didn't join in the fun the last few months with the mini book, tag and the Christmas card swap, I thought I'd start the new year right and participate in a card swap in January!
We did a "Thinking of You" and "Birthday" theme. The card above is the card I created for the "Thinking of You" swap. I just received my cards from the swap yesterday. Below you can see all the "Thinking of You" cards I received.
I used a kraft base for my card with just a piece of red as my background, leaving an 1/8 of an inch border. I used my "new" Teresa Collins eBosser Sophisticated embossing folder with kraft card stock for my next background again leaving an 1/8 inch border.
I stamped the flower image using a Sweet 'n Sassy stamp set called Celebrate Today. The image was stamped with Tim Holtz Festive Berries distress ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. For the sentiment I used a Hero Arts stamp set called Thinking of You. I lightly inked all the edges with Tim Holtz black soot distress ink.
Now for the cards I received! I can't give credit to all of the ladies because some of them didn't sign their card unfortunately. I've added the name of the person below each card if I know who created it. Update: I've now added the name of the each person who created each card.
I'll share the Birthday cards in the next few days! Thanks for stopping by!
