    Absolutely gorgeous! How much fun did you have dusting them with the metallic finish?!?

    Thank you Maggie – these designs are proving to be popular. I love the effect that metallic dusting provides but have to use it sparingly as I only have a small stock of [antique] powder and it gets everywhere!

    What stunning cards. I like the Season’s Greetings one but the snowflakes are beautiful, so intricate and I love the gold dust.
    You must enjoy getting covered in it, surely?! It’s half the fun!
    I hope you sell hundreds of the cards – best of luck with them.
