November D’s Stamping Team USA Blog Hop Christmas

Blog-Hop

Our blog hop this month is Christmas cards, and I have a pretty, yet simple card for you using the Flurry of Wishes stamp set.  This is one of the cards from my Christmas Card Classes this week.

I normally have a monthly class called Cards and More, where we make nine cards (three each of three designs), plus a bonus project.  Because everyone needs Christmas cards, I’m doing things a little differently this month.  I’m having two classes each day, one in the morning, and one in the afternoon, with different projects.  Many of my customers are bringing a lunch and coming to spend the day!  They’ll go home with 18 Christmas cards and two bonus projects!

This is one of the nine cards.

Flurry of Wishes3

Here’s the fixin’s:

I used the Flurry of Wishes Stamp Set Bundle.  The card base is Whisper White Thick cardstock (5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ folded in half).

The panel is Soft Sky (4″ x 5 1/4″).  I used the 2 1/2″ circle punch to punch a circle in the lower right corner, about an inch from the bottom, and slightly off the right edge.  The greeting is stamped in Lost Lagoon in the bottom left corner.  The panel is then embossed with the Softly Falling TIEF with the heavier concentration of “snow” at the top.  The narrowest part of the panel is wrapped with 1/8″ silver ribbon and tied in a knot.

I then laid the Soft Sky panel onto the base card (for placement) and stamped the second largest snowflake directly onto the card base, inside the punched circle.  I adhered the Soft Sky panel to the card base with Dimensionals.  I stamped the second smallest snowflake in Lost Lagoon, and the smallest snowflake in Soft Sky on a scrap of Whisper White CS, and punched them both out with the coordinating punch, layering them with Dimensionals onto the snowflake in the circle on the card base.

I added a rhinestone to the center of the stacked snowflakes, dotted the card with the 2-way glue pen, and added Dazzling Diamonds for a finishing touch!

If you’re in the Fort Knox/Elizabethtown area of Fort Knox, I’d love to have you in one of my classes.  If you need any of the products used to create this project, and don’t have a demonstrator, please click on the shopping basket to get to my Stampin’ Up! website!  If you do place an online order, please don’t click the No Contact box.  If you do, I won’t be able to thank you for your order!

Until next time……….stay inky, my friends!
