    Merry Christmas, Rik, to your family, and also to all here at TG!

    I love your card design, Rik!
    I've been baking chocolate chip cookies all day for gifts, but I did manage to put together a little Xara card design...

    This is one of the stereograms I created for the Japanese stereogram magazine I contribute images to. The little snowmen are called Yaki-Daruma and it seemed appropriate to the season.

    Went for an easy one this year in the way of design. The design is done the craft route, making metal dies to cut the paper of the owl, "merry christmas" and the holly and berries. Then using a mixture of double sided tape and foam I stuck each onto folded card using the foam to bring the owl further away from the card. It was a bit of a fouter (fiddly) to do this to make up 83 Christmas cards to be sent out from my family to friends. At least I could print out the inside easily as I have an Excel file to add messages to certain one but that was done in Serif's Page Plus.

    Sorry I was so busy trying to explain how I made the card I forgot to wish everyone "a happy and peaceful holiday". Sorry that was really rude of me.
