Christmas Card Class Projects

Here are the last two projects for my class today. This one is obviously a remix of THIS card of mine you've likely seen before. I simplified it by making the embossing all in one color- no more white sentiment. I also changed the sentiment because I wanted to use the Season's Greetings on the card below. I'm not sure how I feel about eliminating the black scallops at the end of the tag. I doubt my customers will mind, but I think they were the fun unexpected little detail that I liked so much about the first design. Don't be surprised if I add them back in at the last minute. I also made this a one layer card instead of having the Kraft base mostly because another of my cards has the Kraft base and I didn't want to worry about running out.
Here is my last design for this class and I am excited about this one too. It is a very simple one layer card but I think it really has a WOW factor. The snowflakes were first stamped in white ink (Itty Bitty Backgrounds) then later I decided I wanted a little sparkle so I made tiny dots all over using the Tombo Mono Multi glue then dumped some chunky white glitter on top! Not only does the glitter sparkle but it also is chunky enough to add some texture and dimension to the card! I think this would be a great card to mass produce because it takes so little supplies and is fairly quick. Isn't that white organza ribbon gorgeous?! Did you know that it is actually cheaper than the taffeta ribbon? Yep!

As promised, here is a peak at all 5 cards together. This class will cost the attendees $16 and they are doing 2 each of 5 designs. The hostess is providing a light lunch and her class fee is FREE as a gift from me. I work really hard to keep the costs down for the guests (and who can beat 10 cards for $16??) which is why these are designed to be low cost, few layers, minimal embellishment cards that hopefully pack a WOW punch!

I hope you like them! If you live nearby and would like to schedule this same class be sure to contact me soon. Time is running out as my calendar, and yours too I'm sure, is getting full fast!

Thanks for visiting!
