It appears that Sandra found something shiny and decided to use it on a card. The result is a clean and simple card that turned out ultra nice.

Today is Day 4 of the online Card Class Holiday Style. There was one last card technique though from Day 3 that I wanted to try out. I have always maintained that cardmaking is good for exercising one’s brain. The experts say that doing Crossword puzzles can help ward off dementia and I think that doing cards like this must have the same effect. It is a challenge to “fit” all the pieces onto the card in a shape and to do it with pleasing co-ordinating colours. Add to that the challenge of stamping that many little images with no smudging or stamping errors and I think you have a fun and effective brain exercise.
