Hey all.    Hope this finds you all in the pink of things (or should I say WHITE?)  Was sure strange to see snowflakes falling from the sky yesterday.  And I must admit I didn't like it much either.  :(

Well this post is to share with you all the cards we will be makingon Monday night Nov 3rd, and Tues morning and evening, Nov 4th.  

 The penguin card is a spinoff of a card I did a long time ago at a cardmaking class I took somewhere down in the valley.   The paper is a pearlescent white,  and the snowflakes behind the penguin are glittered.    This is called a double pocket card and would hold a gift card or some cash if desired.   
The pinebough is a direct case (copy and share everything)  of a card done by Cynthia Millan, Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.   Isn’t it just gorgeous?

The pointsetta card is another cased card and it was designed by Katrina Watts.  I just loved the layout of it and I had everything I needed to duplicate her card.  So I did it!

This card is called a box card and it is all the rage among cardmakers right now.  I had so much fun putting this one together.    I downloaded the template for the box from the internet and watched a video on YOU Tube to learn how to assemble the box.  Its hard to see in the picture by the snowflakes have been punch out glittered to the max.   The card folds up to fit into a regular sized card envelope.

and lastly, the winter scene card is very simple.  I used an embossing folder for the background,  masked off for the moon and sponged with blue ink.   I used a matching die for the village.   Lots of sponging on this card too.

The OPTIONAL project this week ------this adorable snowman.   He is made with 3 Pearsons mint patties.    A cute little gift for a teacher or maybe your hair dresser, or a co-worker you just want to remember with a little something at Christmas time.   If you want to do this project please let me know by Monday morning so I can have everything ready for you.   The cost is $2 and includes the candy, cardstock and cellophane envelope.    

Hope you enjoyed seeing my first set of class Christmas cards.   The next set of cards will be done on Nov 17th and 18th.     5 more beautiful Christmas cards you will be proud to send to family and friends.   and the best thing is you made them yourself with loads of love.  
So I will be back in a week or two to share those cards with you.     See you then.
