I’ve been a bit of a ‘bookworm’ lately and have forgotten to share the cards we made at our November Card Class.
I’m not sure what this style of card is called but I’ve called it a ‘Pocket Card’.
I know Black is not normally a colour used for Christmas but I really like it and think it goes well with Old Olive and the silver accessories. Here I’ve used it with the Silver Foil Snowflakes, Silver Metallic-Edge satin ribbon, Silver Foil and Silver Embossing Powder (I don’t think there’s anything ‘ silver’ left to use!).
The sentiment and embellishment on the inside are from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set – I’ve used this set heaps this year and am glad it’s carrying over.
The card stands on it’s own and when you pull the ribbon tag up you get to see the ‘inside’ of the card. I’ve kept the inside fairly plain so that there’s plenty of room to write your Christmas message.
For our second project I gave the ladies a choice as to which design they wanted to use – or they could create their own combination.
The stamp set I’ve used here is the Color Me Happy set which was released with the Stampin’ Blends.
I kept the same style for each design but just changed the stamps, colours and card bases. The first card uses Cherry Cobbler, the second uses Rich Razzleberry and Pink Pirouette, the third uses Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Pool Party and the fourth card uses Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay and Noght of Navy.
I’m loving the new Stampin’ Blends and it’s definitely ‘practice, practice, practice’ to get the blending just right.
I used Copper Foil and the Circle Framelits for the element behind the sentiment (which was hand cut).
If you’d like to have a play with the Stampin’ Blends and are around over the Christmas break I will be holding a class so you can try them out – keep an eye out for notification about this date (still to be confirmed).
I’ll be back soon to share more creations in the next day or so.
