No, I did not post anything last week and we did not have a class last week so we are going to just keep going with our 10 week count down.
This week we are going to be making five Christmas cards and one surprise project. Two of the cards we are going to be making can be changed up a bit and you will see the two different versions that I came up with for each of those in the pictures below.
Here is the first card and you can see here the two different placements of the sentiment and with the one on the left I stamped off the wood stamp to make the wood grain a little lighter. This layout I got online a while back (I’m sorry I can’t remember where I saw it but if you find it or if you know who it is please let me know so I can give them credit), but it was for a Thank You card originally, I do believe.
This one I came up with using the new Stampin’ Up Candy Cane Lane DSP 141981, the Cookie Cutter Christmas Bundle 143493, and the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies 141706. Oh, and a little scrap piece of Red Glimmer Paper 121790, for the bow tie and little heart buttons.
This is my second attempt at making one of these tri-fold cards and I think it turned out much better than the first one. Once again I used the Stampin’ Up Candy Cane Lane DSP, the Cookie Cutter Christmas Bundle and the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.
I love this stamp set, it is called Merry Mice and it is in the Stampin’ Up Holiday Catalog (if you would like a catalog please contact me and I will gladly send you one or you can go to my Stampin’ Up Website and order this stamp set from there). Now this layout I got from Angie over at Chic n Scratch and as you can see the one on the left is laid out just like she has her layout and the one on the right I tweaked it just a bit by having the four layers instead of three and then the third layer I just turned it slightly to make it a tad more casual looking.
The fifth card and surprise project I will keep under wraps for those who attend the class. So if any or all of these cards catch your eye and you would like to come make them for a personal touch in your card giving this year, then be sure to sign up through my Stampin’ Up Website or contact me by Wednesday, November 16, 2016 to reserve your seat. Bring a friend and enjoy a couple hours with us for card making, snacking and socializing.
Have a blessed day and see you Saturday, November 19, 2016!
