Exchange cards for my swap partners featuring glossy backgrounds, sequins and large laser printed greetings

 I made up card kits for my exchange cards this month!  They both feature some bright glossy backgrounds which I made with glossy photo paper and inks.  I used a variety of dies to cut pieces for these cards.  The large greetings (Desert Diva) were printed on white cardstock and trimmed to size. I embossed them both manually with different embossing folders.  I added faux stitching to first one and used my tracing wheel to add some texture to the second one.  The elements were assembled and mounted to coordinating cards.  I added the sequins using tiny pieces of double sided tape.  You can check the others here.  They will be on their way tomorrow!!           Therese

Quick and easy card featuring the Manhattan embossing folder, some ribbon and a small greeting

I made up these card kits for my Special Card Class in May.  These are quick and easy yet quite a versatile design.  I embossed the neutral layer with the Manhattan embossing folder (SU) and added a length of organza ribbon before gluing this layer to a coordinating card front.  I trimmed a section off of the green one before adding the ribbon which allowed room to the right for the little Word Window greeting punchie.  For the blue card, I simply added the greeting below the ribbon where it was frame with the ends.        Therese
