Published in PaperCrafts!!!!

After months of trying I have at last got a card published in the Nov/Dec PaperCrafts magazine and I am thrilled.  I guess now that it has been published I am allowed to show you my card.  PaperCrafts is impossible to get in the UK unless you subscribe so this is for my UK visitors.



































The HA Leaf and Floral background has been embossed in gold before adding my poinsettia flower which has been dry embossed using a herringbone folder.  Quite a simple card but quite a thick one to post ,  to cut my postage down this year I am trying to make as many flat cards as I can.  Here is one using the Winter Town a favourite of mine.

























Here is another using the same stamp I love the water colour effect you get when spritzing the (Distressed) inked stamp with water.


There seems to be a bit of a blue theme going on at the moment with my Christmas cards.,

Hope you are having a great weekend, we are having the perfect Autumnal day here at the moment, blue sky but chilly, I love days like this. Hubby and I have been for a long walk over the common, just perfect..

I love them all! And I was so excited to see your name while I was looking through my digi PC the other day :) It's a gorgeous card! Embossing the poinsettia layers really makes it pop - although I'd want to save it for hand-delivery too :)
Love that Winter Town stamp - so pretty, and it looks fabulous CAS or dressed up!

Congrats Sally.

I love your gold background, but the poinsettia certainly makes the card pop.
My Dad would love the winter town card, he always asks for a scenic card at Christmas. Will have to check out the stamp.

Love the look of the magazine so maybe a subscription will go on my Christmas 'wish list'! Shame its not available in UK shops.

Love Sheila x
