Win 5 Gorgeous Handmade Cards!

All we need is 50 more pounds for the first raffle! If you donate now, you'll have a chance at all of the prizes. Pictures of most new items to be added this weekend, so keep checking back!
Diane of 1CardCreator blog and shop has generously donated 5 greeting cards of the winner’s choosing from her etsy shop. Thank you, Diane!

From her Michigan home, Diane specializes in making very detailed handmade cards. What makes her shop unique is she offers a greeting card mailing service. She will remind you of people’s birthdays and anniversaries, personalize the card, sign, address, stamp, and mail it for you this year and next. What a great idea! I wonder if she does Christmas cards? Wouldn’t you love someone to take the hassle out of doing those each year? There’s no more excuses of “I ran out of time” when Diane’s around.
Diane is even a minor crafting celebrity now. She is the proud winner of the Papercraft magazine 2008 World Card Day Contest. Her winning card submission will be featured in the March/April 2009 issue. Diane has been making cards since 2001 and has never stopped since. She just loves making cards and seeing the joy they bring to her friends.

Diane’s 1CardCreator blog is also really interesting. She demonstrates with clear pictures how she made her cards. She’s also got some really unique ones on there – cards in the shape of a graduation cap, balloons bursting forth from inside a card, and cards with moveable objects.

My favorite post on her blog is how to tie dye card stock with shaving foam. It is absolutely genius. With ideas such as these, Diane is sure to be winning more awards.
