Chain card swap following Tracy’s card

Welcome to the last in a series of eleven 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, Tracy 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.

This is the card I was sent from Cheryl:-

I hadn’t made one of these twisted gatefold cards before. It was fun to make and I liked stamping the leaf image on the cardstock to create the background. The paper is from the Fresh as a Daisy Designer Series Paper. I used the Bee my Valentine bundle for the focal part of my card.

Here it is opened out:-

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

Now its time for you to CASE Tracy’s card

Happy crafting

  1. How funny that we’re back to the bees – but in such a different style. I love what you’ve done with the inside.
