I was recently asked by Jane, a regular visitor to my blog, if I would like to take part in a card swap group which started this month. Jane has organised a group of 10 crafty ladies so that we each make a card and, once a month, we send it to the next person on the list (and when it's our birthday we get a card from everyone in the group!). The idea behind this is to get inspiration from fellow crafters whilst at the same time getting to know each other. I will, of course, be posting both the cards I make and the cards I receive and here is my first 'make' which hopefully Alison will have received by now!
As the cards need to go through the post I needed to make a fairly flat card and this is what I came up with. The colour scheme is Raspberry Ripple, Crumb Cake and Naturals Ivory, stamp sets are Bloomin'Marvelous, Pretty Petites, A Word for You and Tiny Tags along with the Scallop Square, Square and Jewelry Tag punches. As I wanted to keep the card flat I paper pierced a scallop border down the card just to add a little bit of detail as well as a couple of Basic Pearls.
If you would like to join the group and get a card through the post each month then please contact me and I will pass on Jane's details to you.
