Day Twelve of the Twelve Days of Christmas


Nipped out for a fab lunch with a pal yesterday .. had been feeling a bit hard done by having had to cancel a few arrangements of late thanks the this year's version of the Norovirus! We met at the Sally Pussey Inn and had a fine old chat and a pretty decent lunch, followed by more chat and, four hours later! I made my way home - thanks Amanda - look forward to doing it all again in the New Year!

Kylie's reached day 12 of her 12 days of Christmas challenge and this means so have I!! I decided to use her fab challenge to make myself make another twelve (or more) cards - those still unused after Christmas will go towards my 2017 quota so it's a win/win for me! 

My card

The front and back of my card and front of my envelope

The inside of my card and reverse of my envelope
Materials used:
  • White 10cm square, 250gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • Two pieces of white card cut to 9 and 9½cm square
  • One piece of pearlescent grey card cut to mat with a 1.6mm border
  • Penny Black "Inclinations" image stamped using Ranger Archival watering can ink
  • Paper Mania sentiment stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink
  • Kaisercraft glitter gel pen in red used to add accent colour

I'm thinking this might be a good Christmas card for a guy? Any thoughts? I'll be entering the above for the following challenges:
  1. Kylie is Addicted to Stamps - TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS - DAY 12
  2. Craftbubble2½ (membership required) - Rudolph Day challenge - USE RED AND GREY
  3. Addicted to Stamps & More - challenge No. 224 - CAS (Clean And Simple)
  4. Crafty Creations - challenge No. 330 - MASCULINE

The eagle eyed amongst you may have spotted that I was very taken with the card received by Sarn recently and CASe'd by me earlier in the week, thanks matey, for the inspiration


SARN said...

Well I just LOVE this black and white with a touch of red card. FABULOUS. Thanks for another shout out too mate!

Glad you enjoyed your lunch out and had a good old chinwag too!

It's the dreaded office Xmas lunch for me today! Yikes! I've got the Bach's Rescue Remedy to hand!

Hugs, Sarn xxx
