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!

We have a wonderful new Guest Designer joining us this month, we were thrilled when Chrissie agreed to make some of her fabulous cards just for us and we know you'll agree when you see what she's been making.
It's the first Friday of the month so this week we'd like you to take inspiration from the flowers associated with the month of February
February's flowers are the Violet and the Primrose
We're looking forward to seeing your creations, so please come and let us know where we can see them.
Here are the Primrose and Violet cards the team have been making this week, we hope they'll help get you thinking
