I'm afraid my first post of 2011 is not very exciting but hey, you've got to start somewhere and as we're just emerging from the 'last of the mince pies' stage, I'm going to ease myself back in gently and that includes my clothes!! So here is the last card I made for the birthday swap last year. It seems odd to say that.
I used my own hand-made leaf stamp for the background, inking with Tim Holtz milled Lavender distress ink and then layered the die cut elements in the centre. I cut the stamp using the Speedball, Speedy-Carve Stamp Making Kit and have found the stamp useful for many projects. The die cut elements were all made using a Cricut.
