Happy World Card Making Day!
I held a technique class and a Christmas Stamp-a-Stack so I'm happy to say I've seen lots of cards created today. And this is one of the designs we made today.
Christmas is such a beautiful time of year and it brings images all about Sparkle!...
and that's what this week's hop is focusing on.
Welcome to another week CASEing the Catty.
The gorgeous new Year of Cheer paper is just lovely and it was the paper itself that inspired me this week. I just wanted something very simple to let the paper stand out- and also because at this time of year when time is getting more precious Christmas cards need to be fast to produce so you can create a large number.
There are 3 sheets each of 4 designs in the pack, but I have only used 2 of the designs for these cards. There is gold, silver and copper foil printing on the papers which have a white base. It is easy to sponge or stamp over the white background and I have simply used a sponge to colour these pieces. Emerald Envy is my pick for the green this year- partly because the seam binding ribbon is so soft that it ties easily and looks lovely,
A small piece of ribbon tied around the white sentiment panel has a gold embellishment tied on for added sparkle.
This one has a narrow scallop edge border of Emerald cardstock poking through which was created using the ribbon punch.
The copper and silver paper doesn't need too much in the way of embellishments.
I love the gold and silver on this paper.
I'll post some of the other creations from the workshop over the next few days.
