Gathering trades

For my gathering last May, I asked everyone to make a 3 x 4" trading card without words for one of the projects we were making, Create-a-Card box. These then went into the box with word plates, white scored card bases and envelopes. Then when you need a card you can select one of the main images, a card base and a word plate (or stamp your words right onto the card base) for a quick card. Here are some of the ones I received as trades that I made up into cards. The top one was a trade from Sue F using the TAC set, 'Toot your horn'. I stamped words on the top and then you can see the little paper at the bottom where I stamped the words for the inside of the card. I added ribbon down the side with a half mat of black.
This one was designed my Angi H. I added a stamped image to the background of the scored bases and then to the front of the bib to help it tie in. Isn't this a cute idea with the punches?? The stamps I used are all retired TAC.
This cute little girl, TAC image, was made by Debbie D. I added words on the front and inside from Stamping Sensation. I loved these words with this image ... they have spunk!
I used the same Stamping Sensation set for this card too. The card was made by Yuki and is a current Hostess set for TAC.

I will be showing more of these tomorrow so come on back. I hope the gals from the gathering have made up there cards also!
