Morning all.  Thankfully it is Friday and after work I can put my feet up for a while.  I hope ;)  Although as it is less that 5 weeks to Christmas I may have to do some shopping instead!

Todays card is inspired by one of the ideas in Get Stamping issue 05.  The free stamps which come with the magazine have been used for quite a few cards lately, in particular Jen's chalet card.
This one uses the words stamp as the centre piece.  The words were stamped in Aged Mahogany distress ink onto a small piece of white stamping card and the edges inked with the same colour.
The words were then layered on to a piece of pre-embossed card which I sanded to reveal a little of the core. 
Once these were added to the 9 x 10.5cm the whole thing was wrapped with a deep red twine.  I then used a red/brown cabochon that Jen had made in the melt pot to finish it off.
This is a card that could be reproduced in bulk quite quickly.  We are debating taking a stall at the local village Christmas Fete, so cards like this would be easy to make en masse.
Enjoy your weekend.  TTFN Jude xx
