    cinlan - your cards are beautiful! My favourite has to be the dragonflies. Great way to finish them with the saying stamps - what ink do you use?

    BluSkyHare - Amapola has given the link to mrubyjean's wonderful tutorial on this site in post #8. That is how I learnt to do this.

    Bunnymther - glad to be of assistance in starting a new love. I had a lot of trouble finding pure beeswax in Melbourne until I tried a shop that sold school art supplies - problem solved. But, then again, we have nothing like Michaels and those other craft stores I am so jealous of Hope to see you

    For those who enjoy playing with beeswax and napkins sniisk is running an APC Athon starting this Wednesday - beeswax works a charm to stick things to the slippery surface of playing cards. It will also be a great chance to get ideas.

    Please sign me up. I had a play last night & it went very well.

    Any suggestions for finishing off the back? Can I glue another piece of paper or card stock on the back to write on?

    Bunnymther - so sorry for missing your post - you are now signed up.
    So glad that your play went well - I can't wait to see what you have made. I normally glue my information paper to the back of my cards but I often use playing cards as a base when using beeswax. If your base is not too flimsy I can't see that you need to add any extra card on the back.
    Hope this helps - anyone else do something different?

    Thanks I will try it. I just need a way to put my info on the back. I used cardstock, so they don’t really need more thickness as the beeswax has firmed them up.

    Bunnymther, I just use double-sided tape to attach a light piece of paper with my info.
    I got your PM and want to give you detailed answers but I've been very busy, sorry.

    mwilding - you are very welcome to join the lurkers' couch. If you have a look at my Gallery all the cards that I made for the recent APC Athon used napkins and beeswax (they also used playing cards as backings as that was the theme - it is not necessary for this swap )

    cinlan and electricdesigner - your amazing cards arrived while my husband and I were down in Victoria. I will give iTraders now.

    REMINDER - For those of you who have not mailed yet - remember that I am in AUSTRALIA and mail is NOT quick! I suggest that you plan to have your cards in the mail no later than the end of this month.
    Still 2 weeks away so plenty of time, but you need to start planning them now.

    Anyone who does not have my Varsity Lakes address please PM me and I will send it immediately.
