Today is the day I attend Ontour Online, an event for SU Demonstrators to share the excitement of the soon-to-go-live 2021-22 Annual Catalogue. The online event I am attending is based in Perth and takes place at 12 noon AEST. I will be participating in the event with my small team of Demonstrators at one of their homes.
We have been asked to prepare a Virtual Swap Card. I chose to use a new stamp set in the Catalogue called Etched in Nature. The card is a Fancy Fold called Front Panel Step Card. The second pic gives a side view so that you get an idea of its construction.
Stamps: Etched in Nature Stamp Set (sneak peek)
Ink: Misty Moonlight, Mango Melody, Memento Black
Card: Misty Moonlight, Basic White (thin), Mango Melody, Beauty of the Earth DSP (Sneak Peek)
Tools: Classic Label Punch (retiring), Water Painters
Embellishments: Gilded Gems (carrying over)
You can view and download a pdf copy of the January-June Mini Catalogue from the sidebar menu on the right side of my blog.

My hubbie asked me to make a card for one of his friends who was turning 65 last week. He is very fond of bush walking, so I decided to use the Waterfront stamp set, the Woodlands Embossing Folder, the Stitched Shapes Dies and the Layering Ovals Dies, all of which will retire with the 2020-21 Annual Catalogue on 3 May. I also used the retired stamp set Number of Years and the Coordinating Dies, which retired a few years ago, but I find perfect for special birthdays.
Colours I used were Shaded Spruce, Early Espresso, Misty Moonlight, Bumble Bee and Very Vanilla. I added Wink of Stella liberally but it is hard to see in the top photo, you can see it better in this photo, so pretty.
I was really happy with how this card turned out, I hope it inspires you. I am a bit sad to say goodbye to these products as they are some of my favourites, but I am looking forward to all the new goodies that will appear in the new catalogue.
