Chain Card Swap Blog Hop – Annette

Back in October 2023 I joined a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators to take part in a ‘Card swap with a Twist – Chain card Swap.

How does this work?

The swap is similar to an old fashioned chain letter or I would say…”Chinese Whispers with Cards’

  • We were given a list of names – 11 in total (not including myself)
  • Create a simple card
  • Send to first person on the list
  • Wait to receive a card from someone…
  • ‘CASE’ that card and send it to the 2nd person on your list
  • Repeat until all people on the list has received a card

Now this is the fun part….When you CASE the card you received, it’s your interpretation of the received card. Just like ‘Chinese Whispers’ you may not end up with what you originally designed

Round 10- Flowering Zinnias

I created this card CASING the card sent to me, using the Flowering Zinnias as my focal point.

With this card I am just letting the paper be the hero…it’s bold, beautiful and bright. I just love how alive it makes me feel.

The Flowering Zinnias 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Designer Series Paper will bring that pop of colour to any paper craft! You can easily make card backgrounds from the greenery designs or fussy cut around one of the bright and beautiful zinnias. With flowers, stars, foliage, stripes, and more all bursting in beautifully bright tones, this paper will add vibrancy to all your cards, gift tags, paper banners, and other paper creations.

The Flowering Zinnias can be found in Online Exclusives on my Stampin’ Up! ® Online Store
