Merry Christmas:
Day 6: The Twelve Cards of Christmas.

Evening everyone! Every now and then, I'm lucky enough to be invited to join a card swap with other SU demonstrators. I love doing this, but I have to admit, I do get nervous about sharing my work in case it's not up to par with the cards I receive. The above card is something I recently made for a Christmas 'Team' swap. All the ladies should have theirs by now so I feel confident posting this today for you all to look at.

As most of you know, I love simple cards that can be easily re-produced by beginner or master stamper alike. This card is no exception, and I made it hoping the demonstrators receiving it might get some workshop ideas for their own customers. The techniques I've used are dry embossing using the bone folder (which is easy to see bordering the image on white) and colouring a stamp with Stamp 'n' Write Markers. I hope you like today's card.

* Tags for All & Many Merry Messages Stamp Sets.
* Rose Red & Whisper White Cardstock.
* Always Artichoke & Rose Red Markers. Rose Red Stamp Pad.
* Bone Folder with 'pristine' folds.

Wow Nerine!!
You've been posting some GORGEOUS work (as usual). This is lovely. I can't wait to see this IRL (1 1/2 weeks....) - sorry I missed your virtual night too.
Will see you soon,
