More Holiday Cards

I had some more fun playing around with the ideas from the first day of Online Card Classes Holiday Card Workshop today.
First off, another of the folded banner tree cards, using the colours from this week's Dynamic Duos challenge:
This time I heat-embossed the "fa-la-la" onto a New England Ivy banner, and left the tree a more natural kraft colour, with wood-grain sequins.
The caroling continues on the inside, but I counted the la-las correctly this time.

Then I tried a card design by Kristina Werner, using some  interesting techniques. Firstly, only partially embossing the card panel, leaving a flat space for stamping the sentiment; secondly, using thin strips of washi tape to define the edges of the panel.
My card uses an image and sentiments from Paper Smooches.
The snowman from "Warm Hearts" was given some Enamel Accent eyes; some baker's twine (The Twinery), Aquadots and Houndstooth Washi (Close to My Heart) complete the card.

Can't wait for the second day of class. Enrollment is still open!
Happy crafting,
Caroline

  4. I love both of these, but the fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la just makes me laugh! Wish I was home to participate in the class more, but I'll take great joy in watching what you create!! :)
