The annual Paper Anthology Christmas Card Swap is always a lot of fun, as well as an amazing source of inspiration. Still working on your own cards? Here are some awesome ideas to spur you on! Cards are in displayed in alphabetical order because there’s no way anyone could choose a “favorite”! ♥ (PS: Want to participate in next year’s swap?

Every year we do a Christmas card swap at Paper Anthology and I’m always in awe at the beautiful designs everyone comes up with. For those of you that haven’t submitted your cards yet for this year, please get them to the store as soon as possible so I can get all the cards out to everyone. Once they’re all in, I’ll choose 3 to spotlight here on the blog. I haven’t joined the fun for several years as November is a very busy time of the year at the store, but this year I vowed to carve out some time! I may have mentioned once or twice how much I loved Taylored Expressions’ Holiday release this year- honestly every single thing was fantastic – so I decided to feature a few things from them on my swap card:
I die cut the Taylored Expressions moose from Altenew’s wood paper ( this is super cool ultra thin real wood that die cuts like a dream) The background is stamped with Taylored Expressions Buffalo check background stamp. The sentiment is from Stampers Anonymous “Christmastime” set (adore these sentiments!) The blanket stitch die cut is from Waffle Flower and the smaller die cut is from Sizzix, stitched rectangles. The tiny twine bow just added the perfect touch!
Thanks for stopping by – I’d appreciate it if you’d leave a comment, I LOVE to see who’s visited!
