Trade Card Swaps for my Team & Customers!

Are you wondering what is a Trade Card Swap is? A Trade Card Swap is a swap I hosted on my customer and Downline Facebook page. Each swap had to measure 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" and everyone that signed up had to follow these details:

You are going to understand more as I show you photos and wow, you are going to love the swaps that were traded between all 12 of us. First off, let's start out with mine and I'll show you how to use a Trade Card at the end of my post. I used the Hedgehugs stamp set for my Trade Card:

And you can see that I did indeed create 12 of them:

Here's the first grouping of six participants:

Peggy Kahle:


Vicki Hagerman:

Michele Thibeau:

Samantha Kingston:

Gloria Folsom:

And the next grouping of six:

Beverly Lazarz

Janet Bagnall:

Maggy Everett:

Barb Eickele:

Victoria Misner:

Deb LaRosa:

So now that everyone has 12 of these assorted Trade Cards, what do you do with them? You keep them on hand for those last minute card needs and use them quickly on a card front just like I did here:

All I did was add 3 layers of cardstock and a bow, glued my trade card at an angle and my card was done. Most of the work was already done for me so it was easy to just slap everything together like I did. I do have dry embossing on the Emerald Envy Cardstock layer that you can see here:

And a close-up of the beautiful bow:

Card Layers:
  • Card Base: Whisper White Cardstock 11" x4-1/4". Score and fold at 5-1/2".
  • Layer #2: Sahara Sand Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4".
  • Layer #3: Emerald Envy Cardstock 5" x 3-3/4". Emboss with the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder
  • Layer #4: Marina Mist Cardstock 3-1/2" x 2-1/2".
  • Layer #5: Whisper White Cardstock 3-1/4" x 2-1/4"

  1. Everyone did such a nice job creating their Trading Cards. I have already used a couple of cards to make a bigger card, thanks for doing such a nice job of coordinating all of this, looking forward to another challenge...have a great day...Vicki

  2. I have this love-hate relationship with ATCs. I think they are great and I also think they are the Devil's spawn. These ones emphasize the great bit.


Thanks so much for visiting me today. I appreciate your comments!
