Interactive cards

Our next workshop on Wednesday July 25th is only days before the Olympic opening ceremony, so we thought we would have a sporting and action packed theme! We will have two demos - Karen will be doing "never ending cards". These are perfect for kids (and men!) and will keep them occupied for hours, well a couple of minutes at least!! There are four surfaces to decorate, so should keep you busy too!

Michelle will be making interactive magnetic cards. Create a background for your card and then stamp, colour and cut out a sporting character. Attach a magnet to his back then use a second magnet inside the card to allow him to be moved around as if by magic! He can also be used as a fridge magnet at a later stage! (This card not recommended for younger children.)

And the winner of the Card Competition is...

...Linda Walker!  See below for Linda's winning card and Evan Davis holding the very same card, just after judging the competition. Linda was presented with her prize of a few crafty goodies and her membership money back at the last workshop. Well done to you Linda!!


Second prize went to Linda Bradley for her patchwork field card. Linda also received some crafty goodies - but at arms length as she had the lergy and didn't stay for the workshop last month!!

Our third prize winner was also not at Card Club so we will give out her prize at the July workshop and leave the surprise till then!

We were a select few at the June workshop but the creativity was definitely still flowing. Here are some of the backgrounds and finished cards from the last workshop along with new demo notes.
