I know its a bit cheeky, but if you are only after a small amount of b'cards (I think you can get about 48up from one of their large sheets - though don't hold me to that!) then you can ask for full sized sample sheets of GF Smith colourplan. And for blocking dies, if it is magnesium ones you require - contact Metallic Elephant, we use them for our dies to foil block boxes we produce. Hope this is a bit of help! :D

I've just got 56 from a 630x480 sheet.

No blocks required for this one because were using a stamp! :icon_biggrin: Hand printed cards for a hand made wedding stationery company! It's the imperfections that make them unique. :icon_wink:

As promised..



Will post some more pics when we've finalised the positioning of the stamp (think were going for portrait card with stamp across the upper 1/2)
