So glad you are joining in this swap Sarah!  Yes, dies that would look appropriate for winter cards are great. Your animals sound like they would be a fun addition.

Jan, I'm sure I already signed up, but I can't find it here or on the discussion thread so here I am again.  I'd like to participate.

Here's the question I asked somewhere:  Is it OK to use frame dies and A2 size dies that would cover the entire front of the card with the stamped image showing through the numerous openings; for example, Holiday Frame or Modern Morocco Background?

ETA:  I just checked my list of posts, and I didn't sign up.  I must not have clicked the right button to post.  I'm glad I came back to check things out.

Oh sorry  Daria, I have asked for embellishment diecuts meaning no frames or backgrounds since my past experience is that the small die cuts travel better and in this first swap I wanted to keep things as simple as possible.    April also offered a great background too which I also said no too...so perhaps that may be a idea for another swap. In the meantime I sure hope my swap description leaves you with other possible dies to use!!
 Glad you are playing!...Jan

You know after I had my envelopes stuffed I looked at those uninspiring white cardstock die cuts and thought geez they look weird and I don't know what I would do with those.  Then I cut some extra and used my embossing powders and used 3 of them to make a card........ok they can be made inspiring but one needs to think outside the box.  I realized that I very seldom ever just cut plain white cardstock anything.  I use heavier paper that can be worked.  So anyway thank you for this swap because it is turning out to be a big ole challenge for me in thinking further out of the box then I already do......

LOL Sadie-your recent Halloween cards and ATC looked nothing short of out-of-box wonderfully creative so I am sure you are up to this challenge!  Glad to hear you reached for the embossing powder...that can sometimes add texture as well as color and sparkle.

Sadly I don't think about reaching for a die very often so I hope this challenge will provide some inspiration to think about them!
Bring on the happy mail :smitten:

Thanks so much for organizing, I am sure it was a bit more difficult than usual since some people were doing 2 packages and some 1.

I'm so excited for this swap! I often think I don't use diecuts enough on my cards so this will be good to break that habit.

Sadie, lol I was thinking the same thing. It's pretty rare if I diecut something with just white cardstock, unless its a basic shape or a snowflake. I'm excited to see what you come up with!

Mine is going out tomorrow. I've had them ready to go but it's been chaotic today and I missed the mail man.

Me too April...I took mine to the post office! 

Sadie, your Happy Mail Packet is on its way to you!

I have already experienced one great outcome...I sorted all my winter/Christmas dies from the rest of my collection and found two I had totally forgotten about since I bought them at the end of season last year.  Without this challenge I would not ever have given the newest, unused dies a thought...thanks everyone for playing!

Cindi's pack will go out tomorrow. I still don't have Utah Ann's address but I'm sure she will get it to me.

Mine are cut and packaged up.  Cindi, the die-cuts and your RAK go out tomorrow.

I agree with Sadie.  Plain white die cuts look a bit weird.  I usually die-cut patterned paper, glitter paper, or an unused background I've made.  It will be challenging to put these to work for us. 

I had fun cutting these out.  Once I had started, I had a hard time stopping.  Cracking my C Plate helped.
