Welcome to The Daring Cardmakers.
We are a team of card-makers from the UK and mainland Europe, who'll try to inspire and encourage you to make some wonderful cards.
Every Friday at about 10am UK time, one of our design team will post a new dare/challenge, along with our creations to get you inspired.
So go on, give it a try - we dare you!
Leave us a comment with a link to your card so that we can view your lovely creations too!

This week's darer is Jo and your challenge is to make a card along any theme, colour, shape, size, etc.
but it must incorporate....
Doodling is a great way to add an individual touch to a card. It could be some simple pen 'stitching' or a hand written greeting or some flowers or swirls or flourishes......
Doodling can be as simple as creating imperfect circles on cardstock as a background, or doodle around an embellishment creating a one of a kind frame. You can doodle flowers and cut them out as embellishments that no one else will have.
You could always print writing or dingbats in a light grey and go over them with pen, or use a pencil to lightly mark out your design before going over it, it doesn't matter if you make a mistake as doodles are all individual and are not meant to be perfect.
That's it! Have fun everyone!
To give you some inspiration, here are the creations from the Design Team...
There are two ways to show us your creations;
1. Leave a message on the blog and we'll come and look. We'll also add a link to the sidebar to make it easy for readers to visit your site and see what you've been up to.
2. We also have a gallery ready and waiting for non-blogger's cards. Just email your pictures to email@example.com and as soon as they've been OK'd they'll appear on the gallery. Please remember to add your name, the dare your card is for and your website info if you have one. If you can tell us how you came across The Daring Cardmakers that would be great too.
Thank you to everyone who shares their cards with us, they are all amazing and we really do appreciate the work you all put into each and every dare that we do.
