Have you noticed that I am struggling to find ‘pithy’ titles for my Why Not (get ahead with Christmas) Wednesday posts? I’m sorry they are getting a little desperate now! But there really is no bad time to start on your Christmas Cards, honestly, it will be upon us in no time at all. The slightly concerning thing for me is that most of our Family Birthdays are between the middle of October and the first week in December, so I still have lots of Birthday ideas to come up with; I think that may be why Christmas creeps up on me!
Anyway, I bought this set quite late on last year, but was delighted to see it carried over to the new Annual Catalogue because I love it. The dies can be a little fiddly to release, but if you have a look at my video you will see my hints and tips for those, which I hope you find useful; the very fine detail dies are some fo the few I would definitely suggest using with the Precision Base Plate – I have not listed it in the Product List, but you may want to add it (#139684).
I am really pleased with how this card turned out. I am not sure which version I prefer, but I think I am leaning towards the Copper version, although I may try the Gold on Very Vanilla and see if that tips the balance for me.
