Now we are into August, building my stash of Christmas cards is definitely on the agenda. I have used an old favourite in the 'Snow Swirled' stamp set on this card.
This week's Merry Monday #27 sketch is the basis for the card and it incorporates a few more sneak peeks of products that will be available in the new 2012-13 Annual Catalogue. I love the new 'Apothecary Accents' framelits set and in particular the die that provides the focus for this card. The shape is a bit different and adds a twist to the standard oval. Here is the sketch.
I have gone for a monochromatic look with the lovely Island Indigo, white and silver. I like the slightly contemporary look this gives and I intend to make a few more cards of this design in other colours such as Elegant Eggplant. Doesn't the sweet new 'Finishing Touches' edgelit die make a great finishing touch!
