With Christmas just around the corner, we made a start on our Christmas Cards in Crafty Creations this arvo. As it is purely a volunteer class, I am able to get more use out of some of my retired stamp sets, DSP, etc. Each week we try & do a small technique & this week it was Heat Embossing.
We created a card similar to this one in one our Technique Classes last year. It has been changed around a little for today’s class.

Our current challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations is to create something using the fantastic “Framelits” from Stampin’ Up!
I decided to create a Christmas Card for this challenge. I am in the process of creating these cards for my next market coming up first Sunday in November, so this was the perfect opportunity for me.
Truth be told, I didn’t really know where I was going with this card, but knew that I wanted to use the “Ornament Keepsakes” with the dotty DSP from “Season of Style” which is in the current “Holiday Catalogue“. Of course I had to used my favourite EF – Perfect Polka Dots!
