Here are the rest of the Christmas cards we made in class this week.

???????????????????????????????What’s this stamp set?  You guessed it:  White Christmas!  This is one of those must have sets.  I framed in our image with a piece of whisper white card stock that had been run through the Big Shot twice.  The first time we inked up the logo side of the Decorative Dots embossing folder with night of navy ink, placed our cardstock into the folder and ran it through the Big Shot.  The results to me look like snow falling on a winter night.  Then we used an oval framelit to cut out the center.  This is a super easy technique that gives a lot of WOW!  To clean your folder all you have to do is spray with our cleaning solution and put a paper towel in the folder, run through the Big Shot again and every nook and cranny is clean as a whistle!

???????????????????????????????This is my hip and trendy contemporary card.  It uses the stamp set Happy Hour from our annual catalog.  The red cardstock is run through the Stylish Stripes embossing folder for a little dimension.  The yellow piece of designer paper is from the Moonlight paper stack on page 185 of the annual catalog.  It’s a fun color combination, at least I think it is, real red, crushed curry and coastal cabana.  That combo may not be the traditional Christmas colors, but, it’s fun!!

???????????????????????????????This last card uses the stamp set Ornamental Pine.  I wanted a country look so I combined our naturals ivory cardstock with mossy meadow, cherry cobbler and whisper white.  The designer paper I used is from the Trim a Tree paper stack in our Holiday catalog.  The pattern has white in it, so I added accents of white by having the verse stamped on white and after embossing the pine cones, they were touched up with our white gel pen to look like they had a layer of snow on them.  The verse if from the stamp set Christmas Bliss, item #138897.   The background was embossed with our Woodgrain embossing folder.  I just love our embossing foolders, for $7.95 you get a lot of bang our of your buck!

The feed back I received seems like this card was the favorite one of the bunch.
