A Magical Swap (part 1)

Hi All! I'm sorry to be slow on the posting this week. It's been a full week at the Close To My Heart Convention here in Walt Disney World. I've reconnected with some old friends and made a lot of new ones, we've peeked at and played with new products that are fantastic (can't wait to start sharing them with you!), and have learned a lot about business and mentoring from fellow crafters. 

One of my favorite ways to meet new people is to do card swaps. Basically it's like the old elementary school card trade except you're trading greeting cards (or what have ya) that you've made. I thought I'd share the cards I made with you today. I created 50 of these for the main swap and I'm going home with 50 new cards from some very talented folks from around the world. Let's take a look:

 

The cards are the same style, but made using different patterns of paper from the Magical Collection  along with layers of Sapphire cardstock  For this first one, stamped the sentiment from the Beyond Awesome stamp set in Crystal Blue ink and added some silver sequins from the Magical Sequins pack. Here's a close-up:

 

And here's a look at the second card:

 

Again, it's the same card, but this time I used Cranberry ink  I also added in a strip of Silver Shimmer Trim to both cards for some extra pizazz. Here's a close-up of the second card:

 

Here's a look at the two together:

 

Hope you enjoyed a look at these fun little cards! Stay tuned for a look at a second card I made for my friends.

Have a wonderfully creative day!
