Monochrome Christmas

This is a quick posting of a card for Spoonful of Sugar's monochrome challenge. I learnt how to make cards with a swinging centre a few weeks back when I went to a class at Made by You in Swindon. It's a tricky card to take a good photo of but essentially it's folded so that the centre square hangs as though it's suspended, you can decorate the front and the back of the square. I opted for a clean and simple card, using clear Hero Arts stamps for the image and the border. They are stamped in Versamark and embossed with crimson powder.

The picture below isn't for the monochrome challenge; it's another of the swing cards, this time experimenting with a circle centre. The image is a digi from Shirleys2Girls and I used Paint to change the image so my reindeer had a back view as well as a front one :).


  1. Ohhh WOW!!! I really like these cards..... but my favorite is the first, it's sooo elegant.


  2. I love your swing cards, Anne. You're so good at making cards with all sorts of folds, there's always something new to look forward to when I visit.


  3. Dear Anne - thank you for your very kind words - much appreciatd. I had to miss the \Graphicus Rereat, which i was relly sad about because I wanted to meet everybody and have some wonderful crafting time and fun.
    Hopefully next time.
    Love Val
