SCS Card Swaps

This first card is my submission for a Happy Kids Birthday SCS swap. The birthday cake is a Stampin' Up image that I colored with Copics. This was time-consuming. The card base is pink, then a layer of a very colorful Happy Birthday designer paper. I put a clear rhinestone sticker on the candle flame. Added the ribbon and prima flowers. The next four cards are ones that I got from the "My Favorite Things" swap. All of them are really great.

These next 3 were from a "Background Card Swap". The backgrounds had to be embossed in some way, whether using dry embossing with a machine such as a Cuttlebug, or dry embossing with embossing powder. I chose dry embossing with a machine so the cards I got back were in the same category.

This card with the butterflies is similar to the one I did.

Here's a close-up of some of the detail that was done on the card.

This is a really neat card. Loved the way it was done.

The hostess of the Background swap also did an "Extra Card" swap. Those that joined this swap had to submit 10 cards that were either extras from other projects or cards that were received from other swaps. So here's the one's I got back. Some of them are really nice.

This card is really nice.

Here's the inside of the card.

This one is nice too.

This is a beautiful card. The top portion inside the envelope was even covered with paper.

This last card is one that I made for Peg. I bought my ladybug card holder from her that she made especially for me. I had purchased a couple of others that were too small. It a simple layout...I liked how it turned out...and she enjoyed it.

Beautiful assortment Betty! I love the little flowers on the girl scout card. I have to get me some of those now. Wonder if Ben Franklin here would have them.

jalna: They might...look in the section where they'd have stuff for weddings. If you can't find any, let me know. I know Michael's carries them, maybe not exact but similar. These may have been made with a die cut...a strip of paper then it is rolled and glued together.

Hi Lauren, thanks for your comment. I wasn't sure I was going to like that card, however, I think it turned out nice. Took a while to color the birthday cake, the spaces were so tiny to color in and then I used so many colors... :)
