About the Swap: Gerriann has a big heart & agreed to facilitate our desire to share our crafty talents with each other. Swaps are great fun & rewarding. However, they are a lot of work for the coordinator. In return for my 9 cards I'll receive 1 card from each of the other crafty ladies participating in my group. So you can expect a follow up post sharing those cards here in a couple of weeks.
About the Card: I stamped, die cut & colored these little Lawn Fawn Penguins weeks ago but just couldn't pull together a card. The original idea was playful - bright green card base, candy stripes of lime greens, pinks & reds, glittered snow flakes. Totally scrapped that idea....
Luckily I was inspired by Sandy Allnock's Interactive Rainbow Ride video.. Loving the end result! My penguin now skates atop a snowy hill (Spellbinders Elegant Designs) just like that little fox on the rainbow.
The white card base was too plain so I inked the edges with Evergreen Bough distress inks. Then made up a few envelopes with matching liners using my Envelope Punch Board.
I hope the card recipient will enjoy playing with their ice skater as much is I did!
