- making 26 cards for two swaps (a 20-card swap and a 6-card swap; not related to each other at all, so may as well use a design I'm happy with!);
- finishing off some Butterfly Cards for DEBRA; and
- another special birthday card for a special boy.
Christmas Card for swap(s)
There's quite a bit of work in this one as each of the trees has been paper-pieced. So each one has been (partially) stamped out three times and fussy cut out. The entire image was also stamped on the card base as a reference point for the paper-piecing, and then a piece of patterned paper added to the right hand side to give the card some interest. Stamp a sentiment, add some sequins, and there you have it!! Pretty easy card x26 to cover two swaps.
(However, as I was stamping and cutting that many, I decided to 'fill up' my green cardstock with as many trees as I could fit - that turned out to be 40! So, I'm going to have 14 additional cards in this design to put towards other community endeavours... More to come on this one... ;) )
More Butterfly Cards for DEBRAI have come across a wonderful artist on Facebook, Toni Arthurs, and she has some amazing digital stamps. As a 'thank you' for joining the group on Facebook, she has released a free digital stamp, and these cards are the result of this:
And now, another special card for a special boy
This card is for a young man who is turning 9 on Monday. Wishing Joshua a very happy day!
I've had to clear through this large assortment of cards on-the-go so that I can get into some challenges for the end of the month ~ watch out! My blog is going to go 'post~al'!! :D
