And, now, onto some Christmas card ideas to share with you. I did my Christmas card classes differently this year -- Christmas card buffets. There were 10 card choices to choose from, and folks could choose to make sets of 8 or 16 cards. I think it helped make the classes run more smoothly, as there was less waiting for one particular card kit. I had 24 folks attend between the three classes I did, and prepped around 400 cards, I think. Lots of fun was had by all! Here is the line up of designs! I'd love to hear which ones are YOUR favorites.
Candy Cane Lane DSP. It is some of the prettiest Christmas paper I have worked with in a while. Beautiful patterns, in some non-traditional colors -- like Crumb Cake and Espresso.
Fancy Frost Specialty paper for the background. This paper has a raised pattern on it that isn't glossy as some of our other papers like this have been -- just a beautiful, raised pattern in heavy wt white. Colors used: Island Indigo and Pool Party.
Santa's Sleigh. I simply love that die set! The sleigh is kind of fiddly, but the end result is really beautiful! Colors used: retired Lost Lagoon, silver glimmer paper, heavy weight white.
Santa's Sleigh bundle. I guess I just really like this set, as I used it for three of the cards in the class! Other products used: Woodland embossing folder, tree builder punch, silver glimmer paper.
Merry Medley -- makes the perfect background to layer the pine cones and greenery using the peaceful pines thinlets. The pine cones are cut from our new copper foil sheets -- simply a must have in my book. One nice thing I found about these dies, is that I could cut several pieces with one pass through the Big Shot, so it didn't take ages to cut the pieces you need if you were strategic in how you layered them onto your plate.
star of light bundle featured here. Such and elegant, different set than we've had in a long time. Simply elegant and beautiful!
detailed Santa -- was so unique, I just had to get it. I think you could use those swirls at the bottom for waves on an ocean card or layout, or drifts of snow, or so many other things!
