Ann's Swap Cards

Happy Tuesday My Blogger Friends!
 Today I will be sharing the two cards that Ann had us make at our November FU gathering.
This first card is a SUPER FUN SURPRISE card...... 
 It's a gate-fold card with a fold over twist!
 The ovals interlock to open up the gate fold of this card......
 And after the ovals are separated........It opens up to reveal a oval mat on the inside.
Here's what it looks like when both sides of this gate fold card are opened. 
To close this card back up......just close-up the right side and over lap the left side to close the card up completely.  DARLING and UNIQUE card Ann.  LOVE IT!
 And the second card Ann had us create was this triple layered inked card.
We used glossy card stock and a spectrum ink pad and with the help of a brayer......We went to town covering our glossy card stock with these three beautiful shades of color.
The first image we added was our "thinking of you" sentiment........
And then we used the cottontail stamp to fill in our images.   
This was a real WOW card......and I'm going to give this technique another try soon!
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share my November FU Swap Card with you......Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!


  1. Kadie these cards are beautiful! I love the first one with the extra ovals on it and the paper is so pretty. You brayered so well on the second. Great cards!

  2. The oval layout is really cool. I like how it interlocks. The paper is so pretty with all the little birdies.
    I have not learned how to brayer yet. I am a little nervous learning this one on my own. Maybe I will watch a video on the internet. May I ask what kind of glossy paper you use? I don't think that SU sells the glossy paper. Anyways, awesome job on the brayering. I love how great colors worked out. Lovin' those cattails too. You get to work with some really neat stamp sets. Thanks for sharing!!!

  3. both cards are simple and
    amazing. i'm fascinated by the engineering on the oval (latch) card. really cool!
