Christmas Card Class

Today I have two of the four cards that we created at my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack class last night, I think it was a success and the women had a nice time. I had 7 women and each one made 12 cards so I tried to keep them simple and easy to make. The first card above was created using the stamp set Gifts of Christmas, I love this stamp set especially paired with the Petals-a-Plenty Textured Impressions Folder from the Stampin' Up mini catalog. I stamped the dove image in Garden Green and then removed the ink from the poinsettias using a q-tip, then colored directly on the stamp with a red SU marker to color the poinsettias then stamped. I added Dazzling Diamonds to the dove, a 2 3/4"x 4" Real Red embossed panel using my textured folder, some white ribbon and pearls to finish it off.






The second card for the class uses the stamp sets Christmas Punch (hostess) for the snowflakes, Best Yet (retired hostess set) and Dasher. The card base is Night of Navy with a panel of Brocade Blue that was stamped using the snowflakes from the Christmas Punch set with a 1/8" piece of metallic silver paper along the edge. The deer was heat embossed using silver embossing powder and the saying was stamped in Night of Navy and punched out using the large oval punch and matted with the scallop oval.

I'll be announcing the winner of the blog candy I have up for grabs later today so be sure to stop by!
