Here are the TWO cards that I made for the most recent Holiday Mini Swap.
This card was very easy for me to come up with. I knew right away that I wanted to use the Gently Falling stamp set, Spice Cake DSP and Spice Cake Fabric. If any of you know me, theseI did not put a sentiment on the front of this card, as I thought that it could be used as many different things - Thanksgiving card, Thank You card, Birthday, Thinking of you...really anything that you would like it to be and I would hate to limit the recipient.
aren't really are not at all my colors, but I can't get enough of this Spice Cake paper! The leaves are stamped in More Mustard (the lighter ones have been stamped off before stamping on the card) with the lines stamped in Soft Suede to match the papers. I either distressed the edges of the papers or sponged the edges of the papers, just to give it a bit more of a rustic feel.
This is a simple card, but I think it is that simple elegance that I love so much about it. And I know the girls in my classes like it too, as they were asking when we would be making this card!
I hope to be back in a few days with the cards that I recieved in the swaps. There are LOTS of great ideas and I can't wait to share them with you...just need to have the daylight to take the pictures.
Have a great weekend! Hope you find some time to play!
