I nominate Onyxnox "Queen of the Crafted Notecards Swap". It's hard to even know where to start with her artistry.
First up, the cute, little, heat embossed card she sent with a note.
Then let's start with the "generic" notecard - She created two of each design and made matching envelopes for each card. At the top of each photo you'll see the front and back of the envelopes. The exterior and interior of the cards are shown in the bottom of each shot. On these cards she used a delicate, silver embossed, scroll design for the background, then topped it with a double layered mat and the stamped pen nib image. So elegant!
Then she went with my holidays theme:
Halloween - DD#1 claimed these, but only because her sister hasn't seen them yet. I suspect there may be a battle over them. Luckily there are two cards, so I foresee I may have to do a King Solomon on them; split them and give one to each.
Thanksgiving - Even more heat embossing on these gorgeous beauties. This time in copper and a dark brown. They look so professional and just shout out "Fall". They look so rich yet earthy!
And then my favorites: Christmas. The photos don't even begin to do them justice. (I tried flipping this photo several times but no luck.) The stamping and embossing were done in silver which stands out so beautifully on the blue cardstock. The interior paper is a white pearlized cardstock. Although the snowflakes on the front look white, they're actually a silver foil and the ribbon strip down the center is more of the pearlized paper that has been embossed with snowflakes.
Love these cards: simple, elegant, beautiful, and rich with understated details. Thank you again, Onyxnox!
