We were asked to bring 26 swap cards along with us on the Alaska Cruise; 25 for other stampers and 1 for Stampin' Up! I love receiving swaps from other stampers, not only for the awesome new ideas for stamp sets I already own, but to see some examples of sets I'm thinking about purchasing.
Today, I'm sharing a couple of cards with the Pop of Petals stamp set, which I haven't purchased yet, but I'm thinking it needs to be on my Wish List! What do you think?

I adore the simple & stunning design of this thank you card created by Connie Stewart at Simply Simple Stamping. This is a perfect design for duplicating quickly to produce a stack of thank you cards. You could very easily swap out the designer series paper and coordinating color to fit the supplies you have on hand.
Background Basics—Connie scored along the 8-1/2" side of a Whisper White Thick card base at the 1-5/8", 1-3/4", 3" and 3-1/8" marks, along with the 4-1/4" mark for the center fold. She adhered a 5-1/2" x 1" strip of Pineapple Punch In Color Designer Series Paper in between the score lines. She also stamped the Friendly Expressions greeting in Pineapple Punch ink in the lower right corner under the score lines.
This card by Helga Hopen in Germany is a stepped-up design featuring the Pop of Petals image as a butterfly, along with a pretty collage of layers. This is a non-traditional size card, but it could easily by modified to make it fit a standard A2 Medium Envelope, if desired.
Background Basics—Helga started with a 9-3/4" x 4-7/8" piece of Whisper White card stock, scored at the half-way mark at 4-7/8". She embossed the 4-1/4" x 4-1/4" Whisper White background with the Softly Falling Texture Impressions Folder, then adhered it to a 4-1/2" x 4-1/2" piece of Soft Sea Foam, then mounted it to the card front.
