okay okay

I'll share the cards we made at my Christmas card class. I've recieved a few emails regarding my lack of motivation for updating this old blog. Sorry. I have more Christmas cards I've made in the last few days that I'll share later. (don't wanna overdo my posting ;) )
This first card you'll have to tilt your computer, or your head. I tried everything to get it to stay upright but it refuses.
Ingredients: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Soft Suede cs, Early Espresso ink, Vicotria crochet trim, lattice embossing folder, dazzling diamonds and A Wish for Peace stamp set.
The first class I did, we used the smooch top coat on the tree/church snow tops, for the 2nd class we did dazzling diamonds. Two different but kinda the same looks.
This card is 5.25 x 5.25. A fun size.
Ingredients: Candy Cane pp, Real Red, Whisper White, Baja Breeze cs, Baja Breeze ink, Real Red grosgrain ribbon, texture plate, silver shimmer brad (I think this picture is the one I used a rhinestone instead).
This one was super easy. And I think my favorite.
Ingredients: Cherry Cobbler cs, ink and seam binding, Whisper White cardstock embossed with the Flurry EF, rhinestones and All Holidays stamp set.
This was another favorite with the girls.
Ingredients: Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake cs, Early Espresso ink, Deck the Halls pp, Victoria crochet trim, vintage brad, dazzling diamonds and To You and Yours stamp set.
This next card was very hard for me. I'm not into the cutesy thing or bright colors. I don't think it turned out too bad.
Ingredients: Garden Green, Real Read, Whisper White cs, Candy Cane pp, Gold (some had silver) shimmer brad and I'm not sure where the "Happy Holidays" is from.
This card is also one of my favorites but was labour intensive. (sorry girls lol)
Ingredients: Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla cs, Deck the Halls pp, Cherry Cobbler seam binding (that stuff was just too cool), Eyelet border punch, ticket corner punch, Deck the Halls button, linen thread, glass glitter (this glitter tarnishes with age so it'll give it a real vintage effect, sooo cool), Early Espresso ink and A Wish for Peace stamp set. Hope I remembered it all.
* I do want to add some of the stamps I used were from retired sets. I don't usually do that for a class, however I knew all the girls that were coming so I wasn't worried about this being an issue. You know, "having to have the stamp set we used but can't get it because it's retired" problem.
Hope you enjoyed my post, if you did, leave me some love. It'll help motivate me to keep updating. hehehe Yep, that's my petty plee to have you leave a comment.
