Christmas Card Workshop

Here are the pictures of the cards we are going to make at our October workshop.
Going clockwise...
1. The wreath is gold embossed on a dark green background. I love the simple elegance of this card.
2. Our cardinal is from a beautiful stamp set call "Harmony". This is a fast and easy card to make using a stencil technique with a sponge dauber. So simple. So beautiful.
3. On the easle card (link in previous blog on how to make these) I used the quote and baby Jesus from the "Christmas Story" stamp set.
The blending pen  makes coloring in the Baby Jesus much easier and smoother.
4. On the last card, I used one of the Wishes patterens, called "Just Right" as the design. This stamp set, "A Timber", only costs $7.95. Couple that with a pack of the Mistletoe Christmas papers, and you have inexpensive tools for making your Christmas cards.

Merry Christmas - a bit early!
