Swap Card Friday

It’s Swap Card Friday and the last Friday before Valentine’s Day so I better get the last of the Valentine cards on here to share with you! Two of the card share similar fun fold techniques but are done in different orientations, which is fun to see. The first card uses the Love Cats stamp set and is actually the impetus for me buying that set. I love this card by Colette Thesenvitz!

Wow! Where to start? The black layer is die cut with the Framed Florets Dies and then embossed with the Metal Plate Embossing Folder. All of this is layered onto a red matte on a white base. The cat is stamped onto a piece of white cardstock with a red colored heart and three red rhinestones trailing from the heart. Oh my gosh, there is even a baker’s twine bow on the cat’s tail! The cat is die cut with the Framed Florets Dies oval and layered onto a red frame also die cut with the Framed Florets Dies. The greeting is embossed with white embossing powder on a label which is die cut from the Stylish Shapes Dies. WOW!

This Friendly Gnomes card by Shawn Perez starts with a base that is 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ and 2 1/8″ with the front score line flipped back. The Scalloped Contours Dies were used to cut the white layers and the red layer is embossed with the Timber 3D Embossing Folder for a nice gnome in the woods look. I love how the Glittered Organdy Ribbon makes the whole card sparkle. The Friendly Gnomes stamp set and Gnomes Dies were also used for the gnome image which is colored with Stampin’ Blend Markers.

Shelly’s card starts with a 6 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ base scored at 4 1/4″. It also uses the Scalloped Contours Dies. Of course the star of this show is the Share a Milkshake Bundle. The Stylish Shapes Dies was used for the greeting and some Iridescent Rhinestones add interest. Shelly has also used a small knotted piece of Glittered Organdy Ribbon. The inside has a layer embossed with the Cane Embossing Folder.

I hope that you are inspired by these three awesome cards!
