I hope you're not feeling too stressed in the lead-up to Christmas. I'm a lot more relaxed, now that I've posted my cards to relatives in Ireland today! It had been worrying me, because it involves writing a resumè of the year's events and there was quite a lot to include. 2014 has been an eventful year with many challenges, but we survived, and are stronger for it.
I've also wrapped the majority of my gifts too, and isn't that a weight off my mind!
I've gone as fancy as I dare on this card, what with international post. It already costs $2.55 to post each card overseas, so I'd hate to pay a penalty for extra thick. There are still a few layers but only one lot of dimensionals. The base is natural card, really good for writing a letter on. Next is a layer of Blackberry Bliss behind a layer of Texture Embossed Pear Pizzazz. Another Blackberry Bliss layer has been cut with the Apothecary Label die, while the stamped piece was cut with Deco Label Framelits. Endless Wishes is the stamp set here and I stayed with the same two colours. Another little bit of fancy was the Glimmer paper banner in silver, and some rhinestones.It is so hard to see these little bits of shine!
So how did I know what I wanted to order? I watched the live stream of the unveiling from the US last week, with a group of team members. Also, we can access the online catalogue already, but our customers have to wait till January 6th. Just another one of the perks of being a demonstrator.
