Christmas In July Class

These were the cards that were made at my Christmas in July class.

First is an easel card, using the Apothercary Art stamp set, just to show that you can change the look of a stamp that you might not think about using for Christmas. You can't see in the picture, but the card base was stamped using VersaMark and one of the Confetti stamps to create a watermark effect background.


The second card is a CAS of Monica's  that we made at training last month. I changed a few things slightly, embossing the top part of the card and spraying the bottom with Champagne shimmer mist (made by mixing Shimmer Paint with Isopropanol Alcohol) I don't think the shimmer shows here sadly, but it does look pretty (trust me!)

The final card is actually a gift card holder, it is a nice way to co-ordinate your card and gift and is quite easy to make. I've scored a lattice effect onto the Crumb Cake card stock with my Simply Scored Scoring Tool, it's really easy to do.

They have all been made with Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Old Olive cardstock.

I hope this has given you a taste of what to expect from one of my classes. Please see the tab for future class dates if you'd like to come along, I'd be very happy to see you.
