Shoebox Swapping in Laurel, MD

Shoebox Swapping in Laurel, MD

Today I get to stamp with 30 of my local SCS buddies at a shoebox swap in Laurel, MD (thank you, Kathy!). The theme of the swap is fall and winter holidays, and this is the card I designed for everybody to make. Most of the cards will be clean & simple, so that there is time to chat and eat as well. The potluck breakfasts and lunches at these shoebox swaps are just fabulous!

I pulled out my old Southwest corner punch to create a silver corded frame around the cardinal image. The ‘Merry Christmas’ label was adhered to the image panel with regular glue, and adhered to the card with a dimensional. The background paper on this card is that wonderful flocked specialty designer paper from the holiday mini catalog — it’s so soft and fuzzy.

Thanks for stopping by!
