Regional Swap and 2012 Family Christmas card

Hi  Everyone and thanks for stopping by! I'm now back from a wonderful time away in Merimbula and feeling rested ready for the Christmas mayhem!

Here is my Christmas card I'm using this year for family and friends. My downline received this card as a swap at our November Stampin'Up! Regionals.

One of my projects while away on holiday was to make all my Christmas cards for this year and I did accomplish that! I made 25 of these and 25 of another design. Don't think I have a spare of it to photograph and show you, silly me!

This card uses the Dasher stamp, I've had a bit of a love affair with it this year and used it quite a few times when I was doing the centrefold cards.The other stamp sets are Confetti and Contempo Christmas.

Cardstock is Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White.
Inks are Soft Suede, Early Espresso ( used on the antlers).
Embellishment is Stampin'Glitter Fine Galaxy.

Thanks for having a look and if I don't get back on here again before Christmas I'd like to wish everyone and their families a Safe and Happy Festive Season and all the very best life can bring for 2012!

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!!

Ink - Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Old Olive

Accessories - Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon, 2 way glue pen, Fine Galaxy Stampin'Glitter

Simply Soft Centrefold Card

Here is another centrefold card I whipped up after my class to give to one of my midwifery buddies whose birthday is coming up very soon.
Stamps - Simply Soft, It's Your Day, Confetti
Card - Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo
Ink - Island indigo, Lucky Limeade, Black Staz-On
Accessories - Pool Party ruffled ribbon, Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch, blender pen

To try something new on this card I cut down the length of the Island Indigo punched ribbon border strip and layered it behind the Lucky Limeade ribbon punch strip. I think it worked out quite nicely!

Thanks for looking!
