Shaped Swap Card

This one is from Diane Smith, looks like she used a die cut for this card. Love it her detail and shading on this is just perfect. On the middle of the card she did a technique called faux wood. Beautiful job on this and one technique I have never tried yet. She also added brads between the flowers and on the bottom of both sides of the friend. This card also opens up. Such a neat idea. And love the added touch of the ribbon on top.

This card is done by Elizabeth Kratzer, she used a scallop to make her card. This card is so cute and small enough to fit in a 3x3 envelope to give as a gift card. Cute idea. Lots of layers on this one. She used a couple different punches and a eyelet in the center of the flower and also added a cut little ribbon to top it off. Super cute idea.
I so enjoyed this swap and was so excited to get it back. I love shaped cards anyway, they are different from the norm.

Shaped Swap Cards Received

These cards are from the Shaped Card Swap I was in. I got some fantastic cards in this swap, everyone did an awesome job. I will share 2 in this one.
This is one that Dar Yarowski"s. Isn't this just the cutest windmill you have ever seen. She has so much detail into it. The blades on the windmill go around too. Such a neat card. She has the blocks on the building cut out and glued on.
This next one is by DeDe Janzen. This one is so cute, the wings open with a message inside. Love how this turned out. She has glued on little wiggly eyes that move. And the wings are attached with black brads.
