I had an idea and decided to make it happen. Does that ever happen? Not often! LOL I think about ideas, and then talk myself out of why it's good. Like taking walks when I'm tired at work, or eating the healthy salad instead of the loaded-with-calories sandwich (and cookie "for only 99 cents!). But this time I actually followed through! Wowsa!!
I'm hosting three months of Christmas cards, using only one to two sets each month. I want to show the versatility, AND show my customers that they don't have to spend alot to make very different cards, using just one (maybe two) stamp sets. So my September class used the beautiful Embellished Ornaments along with the Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies. I also showcased the Season of Cheer Designer Series Paper. And here are the cards we created:
The "merry" was cut using Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies; only one half of the ornament and the greeting was adhered to the left side of the card so that it could open.
This card also used Rhinestone Basic Jewels and 1/8" Silver Ribbon.
Then we made this:
here, we used the bokeh technique for the background. The ornaments were cut with Silver Foil and "hung" with Silver Cording Trim. "peace" was cut with the Christmas Greetings Thinlits, once from our bokeh effect cardstock and again using Coaster Board.
For the next card (a total CASE of Mary Fish), we used the fabulous Red Foil Sheets:
The top layer of Whisper White is cut using the framelit, and the cut piece is adhered to the red foil sheet. Then the top layer of Whisper White is popped up with Dimensionals. A beautiful card.
And finally, some fun:
Our shaker card was filled with lots of stars punched with the Confetti Stars Border Punch and Gold Sequins.
Wish you had come? Well don't fret; I'm holding my next class on Friday night. We'll be using Your Presents along with Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum and Merry Moments Designer Series Paper Stack. Attendees who place a minimum order earn a half-price or FREE class. Watch for an e-mail invitation (or contact me for your invite!).
