Stamp & Ink Designs Group Fun!
What is a Trade Card Swap? It’s a group activity that everyone signs up for. I posted the rules as shown above on my Facebook Stamp & Ink Designs Group and we had 35 participants. And they are so much fun. It’s exciting to get envelopes in the mail and finding out what’s inside.
To give you an idea of what each person does when following the rules, here’s what I sent to the people in my group:
We had 7 groups of 5 so that means you create 5 of the same design, keep one for yourself and mail out the remainder to the other’s in the group. Because this is my group page, a few of the girls that were not in my group sent me one anyway so I have lots of inspiration to show you over the next few days.
The Trade Card that I used on my card today is from Mary Elsbury. She created this monochromatic two-layered trade card and added an adorable sentiment and a couple diecut snowflakes. I created all of the other layers under my trade card:
What I love about the trade cards is most of the work is done for you. You just create a card base and layers to your liking, and then add the trade card to the front:
All I did was add the following layers:
- Card Base: Mint Macaron Cardstock
- Layer #2: Champagne Foil Sheets cut with the Split Card Textures Dies
- Layer #3: Basic White Cardstock cut with the Deckled Rectangles Dies
Stay tuned for another Trade Card tomorrow!
