Christmas in July Class

Yesterday I held one of my day classes "Christmas in July" and I will be re-running this as an evening class, dates to follow shortly.

We made 6 delightful Christmas Cards, all using the gorgeous "Serene Snowflakes" stamp set, I really love this set it is so pretty and can be used in so many different ways.
We made six cards in total, 3 designs, 2 of each colourway, Old Olive/Chocolate Chip and Old Olive/Rich Razzleberry.  We also used the "Merry Christmas" greeting from "Season of Joy" stamp set and the Jumbo Wheel "So Swirly" along with the cute "Tiny Tags" and these all worked together lovely.  Here's a close up of the cards:

 We used Versamark and Silver Embossing Powder on some of the Snowflake images and then the "Platinum Shimmer Paint" on others, both looked equally nice.  With the Shimmer Paint you just use a dauber to apply it to the rubber stamp and then stamp onto your cardstock as you would normally.  This really gives a lovely silver shimmery image, gorgeous!

We also used embellishments from the Pretties Kit and Old Olive 5/8" Satin Ribbon.  We had a lovely afternoon crafting and it is surprising where the time goes!
