A friend of mine coordinates card swaps and invited me to participate last year. The swap for this month is birthday cards and I got to make a card for women. We are each assigned a more specific theme on the topic of birthday such as men, children, child-girl, child-boy, friend, general, etc. It makes for nice cards on hand to send out when you have a birthday. We give our cards to our hostess and she gives us back one of every card that was swapped.
I really struggled with this for a while, then I found a neat shaped card on a forum I like to read. It’s a cut file for SCAL and a Cricut. I resized it so I could get 2 cards out of a 12×12 paper, which seems wasteful but it’s still less expensive than purchasing a card. To do over again, I would move the “appy” to the left leg of the ‘h’ and put birthday on the outside right leg. I think I would also use a patterned double-sided paper instead of doubled over single side. I made ten of these and will deliver them this morning. Hopefully, I’ll receive the swapped cards on the weekend. Stay tuned later this month to see what others made.
