DAY TWO: 2017 Holiday One-for-One Card Swap

Holiday One-for-One Swap, Stampin' Up!After collecting a batch of beautiful Holiday One-for-One swap card over the past month, I am excited to share them with you.  This swap is filled with beautiful inspiration, and I know you’re going to love these projects.  In a series of several posts over the next two weeks, I will share these cards with everyone.

I love these swaps because they showcase beautiful projects from cardmakers at ALL SKILL LEVELS – some are brand new to the craft, and others have been creating for years.  Please look them over, admire their beauty and then let the creators know how beautiful their cards are (I already know you’ll be kind with your comments, but I am going to request it, anyway).

If you participated in the swap and don’t see the card you received here, please wait to comment about that card when it shows up on my blog – that way, the creator of that card will be sure to see your comments.

The collection of cards I’m sharing today might not all have current Stampin’ Up! products, but every card gives great ideas for color combinations, layouts, techniques – every project is sure to inspire you.  Without any further ado, here is the second batch of your beautiful cards:
