Christmas Greetings

Today’s card is one of the cards we will be creating in Crafty Creations this arvo. 004---blog

In fact, I will be dividing the class into 4 groups with each group doing 4 different cards over 4 weeks.  They don’t know it yet, but by the time this post goes live we will be in the middle of our class & the ladies will have received their surprise!!!!!

This set of cards is using the now retired “Special Season” Stamp set.

With today’s card, I started out by casing one from Pinterest, but didn’t end up being anything like the one I started out doing.  It sort of created a mind of it’s own & just kept going until I ended up with something that we could do in our Friday’s class without being too busy or involved.

My card hasn’t been embossed, but I have since added this bit to it.  The Cherry Cobbler is now embossed using the Petals-a-Plenty EF (retired).  By embossing the Cherry Cobbler, it sort of made the card jump a little more.

The edges of the Very Vanilla panel have been sponged with Crumb Cake, along with the greeting & the inside of the card.  It sort of ties everything together by doing it this way.

To bring the tree alive a little, I added Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details as well as Silver Sparkle – not seen in the photo, as it was added afterwards.

Don’t forget to check back next Friday to see the 2nd card.

Until next time, Happy Stampin!

Christmas Greetings….

Our 1st card in our Technique Class last Sunday was using the gorgeous Stamp Set – Joyful Christmas with the beautiful technique “Stained Class“.

We also got to play a little with the Envelope Punch Board & created a File Card which seems to be all the rage at the moment.

I always try & plan my classes around the ladies & what they like.  It gets me out of my comfort zone.  The ladies loved this technique & the card – which is always a good thing.
