How is your week going? The weather has been a bit hit and miss round here. Yesterday we had a treat, there was an offer on Travel Zoo to see Guys and Dolls at the Mayflower theatre at a bargain price. It was a fantastic show we thoroughly enjoyed it. We are so lucky to live so close to such a good theatre.
On Monday I had a crafty session and I wasn't sure what to make. I was going through my Christmas stash ( yes it is separate to the rest of my stash) and I came across some laser cut card blanks that I hadn't successfully used before.
The ivy leaves are cut into the card blank they are just so pretty. I put some green card behind to make the leaves look green. The finished card measure 8" x 8".
The image and the sentiment came from the Every Blessing stamp set by Stampin Up. They were stamped with black archival ink. I used a mask to ink over the image.
I made a smaller card using the same idea. I used a pen to outline the square I inked to give it some definition. The template I used for the inking it one I made last year to fit this size of card. I am so pleased I kept it. I think I will be making some more of these. These cards are just 6" x 6" and they are flat which makes them ideal for posting.
It was a good session. Altogether I made four Christmas card (two of each design) and two other cards I needed to make.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
