DAY TWO: 2021 Holiday One-for-One Card Swap

Welcome to DAY TWO of the projects from my 2021 Holiday One-for-One Card Swap. Over the past several weeks, I’ve been running to my mail box to collect the GORGEOUS cards you’ve sent for my 2021 Holiday One-for-One Card Swap. Today I have the pleasure of sharing another batch of them with you. Yay! In a series of several posts over the next week, I will share each of these beautiful cards with everyone. There’s so much wonderful inspiration to share!

13 Holiday Swap Cards, Stampin Up!, hosted by Brian King, day twoIf you missed DAY ONE of the swaps I, you can see those projects here:

I love these swaps because they showcase beautiful projects from card makers 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:
