These 5 cards were what I got in a Techniques SCS Card Swap. All of them are gorgeous. On this first card, the giraffes were embossed with copper embossing powder. An African mask brad was added on the right corner. Beautiful card IRL (in real life).
The technique used on this card is called spotlighting. Enlarge the picture to see what parts of the card were "spotlighted". It may be hard to tell. It is another gorgeous card.
Another beautiful card.
This card has embossing on it.
This card has stitching on it.
As I mentioned, these all were gorgeous cards. These ladies did outstanding work on their cards. When gorgeous cards are received, it is worthwhile spending the time and effort in participating in card swaps.
I thought I should update my introduction to reflect what is important to me at this time in my life. For years I enjoyed making handmade cards...I have baskets full of cards I've made and kept. I still make our yearly Christmas cards. My passion these days is sewing and quilting. I grew up surrounded by beautiful fabrics. I have found it is something I thoroughly enjoy. Sharing my thoughts of what is going on in my life through this blog is also something I enjoy immensely.
