My First Card Swap!

I am finally participating in my very first card swap and I am super-duper excited!  The theme for the swap is 'Fall/Just Because'.  I haven't ever done a fall card before, so this was a great challenge for me-- and a fun one!!

The Doodlecharms Cricut cartridge truly came in handy for this card, providing the basket, leaves, and acorn.  One of my infamous $1 stamps from M's (that I've had for 2 years!) finally came in handy and lots of inking with my Versa Magic Dew Drops helped finish the project out.  I paired the cards with a Kraft paper envelope that corresponds with the card's base.

Finally, I wanted to make a thank you gift for the swap hostess!  I hadn't made a note card holder set in a long while, so I decided that's what I would do.  Add some Core'dinations and Fiskars designer paper together- and this is what you get!

My package 'goes postal' tomorrow and I can't wait to see what all of the other participants have created!!

Hope your card swap was a great success. Love the design you chose. The note cards and holder was such a nice thank you gift for your hostess. I loved the simplicity of the design and the choice of colors you used. Fall and Thanksgiving sometimes get a bit short changed between Halloween and Christmas.
