Christmas Class

My Christmas Classes began in July which seems like ages ago now as we are nearing September!!  We make 10 cards at this class, 2 each of 5 designs and it is proving to be a popular evening so I am guessing everyone is wanting to be ahead of themselves this year, including me!
One of the cards at this month's class uses the "Pennant Parade" stamp set, one I haven't used in a while and it is not an obvious Christmas set, more for creating bunting which when turned upside down creates the cutest tree!
The stars are also from the same set stamped onto a Circle cut using the Big Shot "Circles #2" die.  This sits perfectly inside the scalloped circle which was die cut using the "Perfect Penants" XL Die with Island Indigo cardstock.
My colour combo is Pool Party, Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade, these are all In-colours which work so well together. 
The Lucky Limeade border was cut using one of the Edgelits with the Big Shot and we used Island Indigo Bakers Twine to wrap around it.
The greeting is from another Christmas stamp set called "Contempo Christmas", inked with Early Espresso ink and cut out using the Decorative Label Punch, pierced using the Mat Pack to create a straight even line!

More cards from the class to follow in the next few days.
