    Hels how many sheets do you need as I have some double sided Stamping Up 12 x 12 ones I don't need, they are traditional christmas colours. can do a photo. Silly monkey crafts had DCWV Rose Tinted Christmas paper stacks fairly reasonable and some RTC embellies in their sale.

    rainmac, I stocked up on embossing powders as I got a second second sentiment printed and embossed with clear powder yesterday. It's on the blog here and also an DCWV embossed paper stack in white for £5.98 and some outline Christmas stickers at 34p each. I made very quick Christmas cards with these last year with the gold on plain white paper. PM me when you've time to get to the bloggie, rainmac.

    Hi all!! I haven't been on the net for a while so I hope I'm not too late for the challenge, my card is on my blog which should be in my signature. I'm off to catch up on the thread!!

    I've spent hours trawling the internet looking for some christmasy type double sided card for my wedding favours, any recommendations? I'm going to make the pryamid type boxes and fill with thorntons chocolates! Sorry I know it's not card-making related!

    Ooohhh, we will love hearing all about your wedding plans and if we can be of any help along the way, please just ask ;)
