The card making groups are thriving. We meet once a month and make a card. The techniques that the group members have mastered recently are stamping and powder embossing and using a heat gun, die cutting, brayering, using acetate to make window cards and embossing folders. Catching up with friends, having fun, tea and biscuits are all included in the £2 cost of the session. In June I started making up card kit packs for those unable to attend a session which are proving very popular.
At the time of writing this report I am in the middle of designing Christmas cards (I know the dreaded word!) as we need to begin making them in September if we wish to make 4 or 5 cards in time for the Christmas post. I do have a 2 spaces on a Wednesday morning (the first Wednesday of the month) so if you think you would like to try your hand please contact me so you can come along for a taster session. One lady who started over a year ago is convinced she isn’t artistic but at the end of each session she is so pleased with the result and often says “I can’t believe I’ve just made this!”Anne Hollis
