Quick "Holiday Card Workshop" Post

"It's the most wonderful time...of the year!"
Yup, time for another edition of Online Card Classes Holiday Card Workshop. It's my third year attending. Last year my sister and I had fun, setting up a Skype crafting session, to do our "homework" together (she lives in Amsterdam, so we had to time it carefully!). I read that one participant has taken the whole week off work so she can stay home and create! Lucky!
Anyway, the idea is to try the techniques and projects demonstrated and share them.
Here's my take on a Z-fold card by Jennifer McGuire:
The banner is cut to appear as one piece when the card is closed.
But when its opened, the message is continued on the inside:
I liked the look of the white pigment ink on coloured card stock. I embossed my tree and used some star-shaped sequins; the original was embellished with a cute die-cut of Xmas lights. Stamps are a mixture of Paper Smooches (sentiment) and Close to My Heart (background stamp).
That's it for tonight--watch for some more cards later this week.
Happy Crafting!


  1. Fun color and stamp choices!

  2. Love the card with the music background!

  3. The white ink looks great against the colorful cardstock. Nice card!


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts!
