Kick Start with the Holiday Card Workshop



With Hurricane Sandy finally leaving the area and having a surprise day off because of her, I have caught up on the new Online card class with Jennifer Maguire and Kristina Werner- Holiday Card Workshop. I love these classes and always learn something new. You can still sign up and enjoy these awesome classes. This card is inspired by the card Jennifer taught us on the first day.  It uses the new set from Paper Smooches called Reflections. In the new issue of Pare Crafts magazine- Holiday Cards and more, there were quite a few cards made with this set. While I have many branch, leaf stamps, I just loved the poinsettia type flower in the set.

I used three shades of distress inks- sun sugar, warm lipstick and festive berries. I added the circle trio in 
Hero Arts green hills and added a bit of glitter to them. The saying is Technique Tuesday's Jingle all the way by Ali Edwards . What a fun card and while I may not be able to mass produce it quite like Jennifer, it is still a doable card. Hey guess what else!!! ONE LAYER!!!

I hope everyone in Sandy's path is safe, secure and maybe able to enjoy a surprise day off like me.

Very festive and pretty card. The green circles really do add that little extra touch of detail and I love that you glittered them.
