seventeen :: the card - part one

Last night I finally made a start on the card. Nothing like the looming last posting date to spur me in to action.

Several attempts and scalpel blades later, and I was reasonably happy. I've spent the last few hours printing with my gocco. I've not used it since last year's card, and had to look at my notes to remind myself how it worked! I'd also forgotten what fun it is. Why haven't I printed anything for a year?

Part two tomorrow - and a giveaway.

You're so clever. And patient. I'd last 5 seconds doing something like this!

Ditto to Frogdancer's comment. Do show us when it's done won't you?

Looks like I'm not the only one doing paper cuts. Looking forward to the next installment.

Looking forward to seeing the finished article D, I do wish I'd bought a gocco, especially now you've reminded me!!

Isn't it wonderful - those first few moments with a fresh blade?!
