Joyeux Noel, Feliz Navidad, Fruhliche Weinachten or whatever the appropriate greeting in July is these days. Now I get a feeling for what the Aussies must go through with shorts and tinnys and tinsel. I decided, if you can't beat em, join em but only with one card so far.
I bought two mahoosive Hunkydory sets last year so most of last year's cards were made from that (as will most of this year's as I have tons left) as that was PSW 2012 (pre Sue Wilson). I didn't take any photos of them but do have some still knocking about. Not sure that folk will want to see any Hunkydory cards I make as they are Spellbinderless but shout if you do. I do intend to get some more Christmassy dies soon so watch this space.
I did buy the Holiday Tree set as one of my first Spellbinder purchases and also the Holiday Magic M-Bossibilities embossing folder, both of which are used on this card which went to my brother in law and his partner.
I won't do the granny and egg sucking thing as it's straightforward except to say, I did improvise with the "poinsettia". I cut the long bauble out of this set and used the aperture as a template to draw through and cut round for the bracts. I then used a metallic gold Promarker to draw the veins. Not anywhere near as good as Heather's proper poinsettia but I was on the hoof.
Now, I think it was Jackie and Kate who asked how I got my.............sit down with a Pepsi John ..........peel offs straight. All I did was measure the width of the letters then draw two very feint parallel lines, that distance apart, down the side of the card and popped the letters between the lines. Sorry it's not a very exciting answer but it's what I did.
Anyhoo, its time to go feed Rudolph..........I was going to do the "looks like reindeer" joke but I don't want to completely alienate the few followers I have LOL !!!
Merry July everyone !!!
Ps....Is anyone going to The Great British Craft Festival at Stoneleigh next month? Some folk seem to think that the Caribbean is a, somehow, better proposition but I'm not bitter LOL !!!
