12 Days of Christmas Cards - Card 1

What a bad blogger I've been...I'm not sure where the days are disappearing. I can't believe it's almost November, and so far I haven't shown you a single Christmas card!!
I'm going to make up for it, and post a card a day for the next 12 days..... It's the 12 days of Christmas come early (hopefully in plenty of time for you to be inspired to make some Christmas cards!). Stay tuned at the end of it all for a Special Offer!
I've been running Christmas Stamp-a-Stacks since July. These are an extremely popular class, and no wonder since you get to make 10 cards each month, so a lot of my customers will have made 50 cards by the end of November. At each class they make 2 different designs, and every month there are new designs. They are all quick and easy cards to mass-produce.
This card doesn't even use a Christmas stamp set! Baroque Motifs would have to be my all-time favourite set. I just love those elegant swirls. I just stamped the swirl once, and then again, without re-inking. The raised dots are made using the Crop-a-dile (on A2 setting), and I have sponged them using ink and a sponge dauber to really accentuate them.

Stamps: Baroque Motifs, En Francais, Occasional Greetings
Ink: Purely Pomegranate, Old Olive
Cardstock: Purely Pomegranate, Old Olive, River Rock
Other Crop-a-dile (to dry-emboss dots), Sponge Dauber
