Christmas card

This is the first card that I sent out this year to a very special cousin. It seems every year she sends her cards out to arrive the day after Thanksgiving so I just had to send it ti arrive before the Holiday. The bird and branch were from Winter woodland cartridge. The white card stock was run through the Snowflakes folder for the Cuttlebug after I had cut out the scalloped rectangle. It was then enlarged by 1/4" and cut out of red paper.
The Merry Christmas was a stamp that I had from many years ago and used pens to color the red and green and brown, then used a scallop punch and colored the edges. The final touch was Stickles to the snowflakes and the berries and branch.

Thanksgiving card


The pilgrims and turkey were cut from A Childs Year to fit on a 4.25 x 5.5" card. The greeting was printed on a computer, then cut to size and rounded the corners with a punch.

Although i have not posted in awhile, that does not mean that I haven't been creating. these are the cards that my daughter and I made when we visited Archivers ( during one of their free make it sessions back in the summer. Learned many different techniques: The THANKS card has a punch and heat embossed image. They do provide all the materials for you to make these cards.
Corner chompers used on the white part of this card, then embossed with a folder. Stamped the thank you and lamp and stamped the lampshade again, then cut it out, heat embossed in pink and attached it with a foam dot.

Used several stamps with a resist technique. Stickles and an ink pad gives it an antique look.

All three cards shown. I found that these classes are a way for you to try different products before you buy.
