A few of my friends take part in a card swap. Each month, they make 12 identical cards based on a certain theme. Then they meet at a local restaurant to swap cards and chit chat. Each member of the group goes home with one of each of the cards — envelopes included.
They have asked me to join for several years, but I always put them off — mostly because I do not like to create more than one of anything!
But, I decided it would be good to fight my hermit tendencies and get out of the house for a girls’ night each month, so I finally joined.
This month’s challenge was to create a thank-you or sympathy card. Here is what I came up with …
I did not have enough cardstock to make all of one color, so half of the girls will get orange and the other half will get purple.
The sentiment, cardstock and ribbon is from Stampin’ Up.
The patterned papers are from We R Memory Keepers’ Indian Summer collection (I have it in stock in my store).
The ostrich stamp and die are from Local King Rubber Stamp. I love him — especially with googly eyes!
The cards are simple — they have to be when I’m making 12 of them — but hopefully the girls will like them …
