Humble Artists Swap card for August




It's now time to share my swap cards!

These are my swap cards I made this past July for the Humble Artists Swap which were for the August swap.

It was my turn to set the guidelines and these were what we all had to follow:
  • 3 1/2" x 8" sized card
  • Use a card design from Wishes or Originals
  • Use one of your favourite colour combos from Jeanette Lynton's blog
  • Use a circle and a square or rectangle somewhere on your card
  • Use ribbon
  • Use 2 other embellishments
  • Have a minimum of 7 layers

I used a 50/50 mix of Prisma Glitter and Clear Detail embossing powder on the main bat stamped image, to give it a little glittery goodness.  I don't think my camera picked up the glitter very much in the photo.

I thought they turned out pretty cute, although I never really seem to give Halloween cards!
But they were fun to make, nonetheless.  ;)

Happy creating!  :)

These are spooktacular! Love the colors and fun opening.
I just started last year mailing Halloween cards, I love hearing the surprise from the people that receive them.
