Chain Card Swap following Monique’s card

Welcome to the eighth in a series of blog hops for our Chain Card Swap.

A group of Australian Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators formed a group late last year to create cards and swap them in a process like a chain letter (although I’ve called it Chinese Whispers cards). The first card in each sequence is an original idea. For this blog hop, Monique created her card and posted it to the next in the list, then that person CASEd (Copy And Selectively Edit) it and mailed her card to the next person on the list. This person then cased her card … and so on!

This has been a lot of fun and a great challenge for me to CASE the cards I was sent. You can see the first card from this chain, created by Monique, by clicking here and follow its progression through to the end. Mine was the last in the chain and was sent back to Monique.

This is the card I was sent from Kayla:-

And here is the inside of her card:-

I created my card using everything in the A Little Latte suite Collection. The dies in the Latte Love bundle made it easy to make the coffee plunger. I used vellum behind my coffee pot to give it a bit of substance without being too much. I’ve used three different papers from the A Little Latte Designer Series Paper. I have kept the layers the same, but swapped the glimmer trim for the Natural polka dot trim from the suite. Of course, the perfect colour to use for the base was Early Espresso cardstock! I finished off my card with the Adhesive backed swirl dots, also from the A little Latte Suite.

Here is the list of participants in the Chain Card Swap. I suggest starting with Monique at the top of the list to see her original card then follow through each post to see its evolution.

Now it’s your turn to CASE Monique’s card
