Today’s card is one of the cards we will be creating in Crafty Creations this arvo.
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.
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.
In our Technique Class a couple of weeks ago, we created Christmas Cards using Dazzling Details. If you have never used this little product, you don’t know what you are missing out on! It is fantastic! I know I will be using more of it in the future & not just for Christmas Cards.
Today’s card is the 2nd one we created in our Technique Class a couple of weeks ago. This is not my original idea, I actually found it on Pinterest & created my own version of it. Thank you Rhonda for the inspiration.
