The morning stars sang together ...

... and the angels shouted for Job - Job 38:7

If you've seen my previous post, you'll know that, having stamped a card blank wrongly, I had the idea of making ten cards out of five card blanks, which I've done here as well.

These blank card blanks already had the random silver foiling on the edges, so all I've done is inked the Tin can mail stamp with versamark and heat embossed with silver detail powder.

So that's another two packs of 5 Christmas cards ready for selling for Tearfund.

These are for:

Facebook A card a day
Fab 'n' funky 180: make a set
The pink elephant 209: monochromatic
Pattie's 71: monochromatic
Craft-room 56: heat embossing
One stitch at a time 173: use your favourite - stamping/heat embossing - and making Christmas cards
Songbird 25: my favourite thing - stamping/heat embossing - and making Christmas cards
