Chardonnay:
about folding cards into boxes - I will have to do a little demo and scan a sketch to you - the front of a card becomes the top (cut in half down the seam) and the back of the card becomes the bottom - when you open it you see the greeting message inside in the lining of the box - it is really easy. You'll get hooked once you start.

Let me see if I remember how to post photos in a thread from the gallery? I made my ATCs for this swap from one greeting card. It was a LARGE card. I mentioned in an earlier post that I have a vast majority of the greeting cards I've received over the past 38 yrs. of my marriage. Is that sad, or what? LOL Well...it gets worse. After both my parents had passed away and our family was deciding what to keep, etc, I kept a lot of the cards that Mom and Dad had saved. :twitcy:So, you see where I got it. :) The ATCs were made from a card that my family had sent to one of of my parents in 1987. I'm so glad I kept it. It was a beautiful card and now it has helped me fulfill some of my artsy/craftiness desires. :)

I embellished the artwork on the card with touches of bronze and or gold embossing powder. On all but one I also coated them with clear embossing powder. And I added a little "surprise" guest on each one. On one card I stamped a Oriental symbol and embossed it. Not real happy with that

Had planned on mailing this swap a couple of days ago. But then I got re-inspired and have created the 3 I mentioned above. Wanted to do one more. Have it started, but it needs something else and I just can't figure it out. So, it might be just a few more days before I mail them. :)

Oh, I am sooooo sorryyyyyy. Gezza sent me a PM that I sent the swap cards by accident to her. You will never guess how this happened.....she was my Secret Santa partner last Christmas for the swap you hosted for that. I have her name and address next to your screen name on my old sheets. I pulled the old address, just assuming I had it...not paying attention to the other text that would have reminded me that I did not mail to you....Hmmmmmmmph. Time to update my records and square this mess away.

Oooo. I do hope the mail runs smooth between N. Ireland and Australia. Again, so sorry. These silly mistakes I make sure burn me up! And thanks again to Gezza if she is reading this. I appreciate you passing things along.

Chardonnay1965
07-15-2008, 04:29 PM

Just received my three trade cards for the swap. Thank you SEMOkrafter for 'Pink', Helen Conolly for 'I Love My Dog' (he's sooo cute), and last but not least to you Lorraine for 'Be the King of the Castle'. Love all of them. I gave rep points for 'Pink' and 'King of the Castle', but couldn't seem to find Helen's AFA Name...?
