Embrace Life

Hello and Welcome to day 7 of the Blog Hop

This is my Swap Card............ I created just the face of the card , only adding a small amount of dimension, keeping in mind it was to be mounted in a frame. So everyone else who received the card can mount it any way they choose!

The tree branch I cut from Story Book, it is raised with tiny foam dots, it  is hard to see that in the photo.

The photo below shows you what I did with the card.........A little more detail makes a huge difference to the overall appearance. White card mounted on black, using the scallop punch again at the end. It measures 4.25 x 7.75in. The card size is 4.50 x 8in.

Here's the recipe for my card. I made the photo slightly transparent then added the text to give details for all my  measurements, it was glued  to the back of my swap card.

Hope you like it!

One day to go...........Head back to Scrappy-Go-Lucky tomorrow to see what Lisa and Tara have created.
