This is my chosen card that I used to demonstrate and then for all who attended to make.
The card is an A6 with the fold at the top but then laid on its side. The brilliant blue and tempting turquoise cardstock are from the bold brights colour family found on page 70 of the UK catalogue.
I have used the stamp set 'Simply Said' one of my favourites at the moment, this can be found on page 39, (£25.95 for a set of 11 stamps, that works out at £2.36 per stamp, bargain). There is loads you can do with this set and its so versatile too. I have also used 'Circle of Friends' stamp set which has circular greetings for different occassions, this can be found on page 62, (£17.95 for a set of 8 stamps, cost per stamp £2.24). I have used ink pads Brilliant blue and Tempting Turquoise. From the tools section I think one of the best things I have bought so far is the stamp-a-ma-jig found on page 81. If you like to make your own backgrounds with stamps then this tool is a must, saves ink and card. So its not just used for the two step stamping as advertised. I also love their punches which I have used the scallop circular punch and two of the circular ones (1 1/4" and 1 3/8"). These three seem to compliment each other in nearly all they do. People say they are a bit pricey but to me they are worth every penny, as they are more robust than any other punch I have bought, and believe me that is a lot over the years. You can find these on page 80.
Hope you have a lovely day and thanks for looking!

Lovely card Melanie.
I have to do a suspension card at my stamp club next month. I never thought of using the scallop punch, I am doing the SU tag punches for mine using the terrific tag stamp set....
