I've received two gorgeous cards. The first one is from Lesley, a Graphicus Guild member, we have had a swap where we each send one card to another member. The card is so elegant, it is white embossed on back, with an acetate snowflake panel over the cutaway panel with Madonna and Child.
We crafters are very self-critical; Lesley pointed out when she'd scanned it that there is a snowflake over the baby's face. The first time I saw this was when I scanned it. In real life the transparent panel and the other two layers just separate slightly and it looks perfect.
The second card is from a friend in the village. We carshare to the Stamp Attic Club meetings at Wantage and occasionally get together to craft when we can. Janet's card is so sumptuous in golds and creams, with lots of painstaking detail, even down to the matching insert. The trees are 3D with embossed detail and the Father Christmas is also dimensional.
Neither card looks quite as good in the scan as in real life; they have pride of place at home and are much appreciated.
Thanks Janet and thanks Lesley.
