I've used the gorgeous Mandela from Marvellous Mehndi for the main image on my card - it's such a lovely image to colour! I stamped it on white card, coloured it with Copics, stamped with Versafine, embossed with clear powder, and then cut it out with my new Scan'n'Cut machine (more of that later). I used the sketch and colours from this week's CAS Colours & Sketches challenge - CASC&S#257, and as I've attached the images to this card I'm also submitting it to Inkspirational - INK#153 where the keyword is Attachment. I cut a panel of aqua card, stamped on the greeting, and adhered it flat to the card. I attached the large image flat to the card and used dimensional tape to attach the little flower. I finished the front by adding some small black gems to the centre of each image. On the inside, I cut a mat layer of aqua card and on the white panel finished the greeting and added a couple of little images from the stamp set.

My mum got me a Scan'n'Cut for Christmas. I opened up the box earlier this week and had a quick play. I cut out the following images:
All the images above are Uniko designs; some are digital and some are stamped. The rose, the large Mandela, the paisley images, and the time doily are all stamped and embossed. The smaller Mandela, the heart, hugs, and the snowflake are digital images that Bev sent me. As you can see the Scan'n'Cut works brilliantly. I did have a small mishap with the snowflake as the grey lines on the digital were so pale that it looked one of the flowers was separate - it should work perfectly when I stamp the image. I'm thrilled with the machine and will be doing lots of stamping this weekend!!
That's all for now - I'm looking forward to checking out your creations - have fun!!
