Friday, April 19, 2013 soon?

During today's class, it was decided by the ladies that we would make one Christmas Card each lesson and every now and then do a Christmas stamp a stack, so that when the silly season came around we would have at least a few Christmas Cards on hand. Seeing the ladies flew through the class this morning and we had some time still left to play I quickly made up this card as the first of many that we will make this year. The girls loved their creation and they were surprised at just how quickly it all came together. I made a base of Garden Green card stock, which on my own admission is not a colour that I normally go for when green is called for. I then cut a mat of the flocked Window Sheet from the Candlelight Christmas Designer Series Paper
and applied it directly to the base. Next it was 2 Oval Framelits in Very Vanilla, which I quickly stamped the larger one with the pine needles from Watercolour Winter in Old Artichoke, then the holly branch from the same set which was stamped using Stazon Ink and coloured with Stamp n Write Markers. The Greeting is from Snow Swirled and that was stamped off then onto a piece of Very Vanilla and using the Square Punch to finish the greeting panel. The ladies used their imagination and one was done as mine, another used rounded ends and another was done using one of the Apothecary Labels. A Very Vanilla Insert was placed inside and the ladies either off stamped the holly branch or the pine needles in one corner and the verse from Snow Swirled was used too
