This year I signed up with an organized card swap and a "card candy" swap. I wanted to share my swaps with you.
First my card for the card swap.
This is a variation of a 3x3 card I made for a swap in April using a water colour technique on the card from in Flirty Flamingo and then Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight on the butterfly stamped and cut out from the In This World stamp set (Item 142652). There is Gold Metallic Thread behind the butterfly and some Black Rhinestone Jewels to add a pop!
Now for the Card Candy Swap. I've never participated in one of these before, but it sounded like fun. You make a 2x2" "card" that can be used on a card front or as part of a collage. The theme was holiday or Happy New Year from the Holiday catalogue.
Here's my candy:
I used the balloon punch to punch out balloons from Gold Foil and Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper. I added a strip of gold or silver Year of Cheer washi tape and some gold or silver Metallic Thread.
I'm excited to see what I get in return in both swaps! Stay tuned and I'll share more pictures over the next few days from OnStage!
