Chain card swap beginning with Cheryl’s card

Handmade split card featuring a hot air balloon
Chain card swap banner Welcome to the third in a series of Chain Card Swaps blog hops. At the beginning of October, Tracy Held started a fun journey with 10 other Australian demonstrators. We called it a “Chain Card Swap” (although I’ve called it Chinese Whispers cards). Each of us designed a card (Round 1) and sent it off to one of the other participants. That person CASEd (Copy And Selectively Edit) the card and sent their version on to the next person. The card made its way around until finally a version came home to the maker. We are going to have a blog hop for each of the card designs to share the fun and amazement at the path it took. This time we follow the path that Cheryl’s card took. You can see her original card here. I suggest that you start at her blog post and then follow the link through which is in round order. This is the card that I received from Tracy (sorry, the quality of my photo isn’t great): I have taken the style of this card – a split card where the bottom panel is attached to the card by the centre feature of the card – and used it with the Hot air balloon bundle and Lighter than Air Designer Series Paper (DSP) to create my card. While I normally like to use bright colours, the colours in the DSP wouldn’t go with my usual style, so I have stamped the hot air balloon in softer colours. Don’t forget – the best way to see how this card changed during the Chain card swap is to start with Cheryl’s card at the top of this list. Happy Crafting Sharni
