Christmas Cards from Not World Card Making Day!

Good Morning everyone!  Yay...it's Friday and the weekend has arrived!  I love weekends...my husband is home...my kids are home...I LOVE my family (as crazy as they make me)!  Tomorrow I have my first Shadow Box class!  I'm so excited!  I shared this project on a Demonstrator Planning sight and several demonstrators have used it for their own classes.  What a compliment!  It makes me so happy when something I've created inspires others to create!  I shared it back on October 9th but I'm gonna share it one more time today, just in case you missed it!!


It occurred to me that I never shared the cards that we created in my "NOT World Card Making" class!  Today I'd like to share the Christmas cards that were made and next week I'll share the All Occasions cards that were made!

Masculine Cards...Simple and Festive

Hey there everyone!  I hope you're having a FANTASTIC day!  I'm watching it rain...listening to music from back in the day and blogging!  What could be better?  I had a great class yesterday down in Redding!  Such a great group of friends!  Here are two of the cards that we made, both make great masculine cards and come together quickly! 


The Whisper White card base measures 5 1/2" X 8 1/2".  The Basic Black layer is 4 1/8" X 5 1/8" and is embossed with the Corrugated Embossing Folder!  Use the Touches of Texture stamp set to stamp on the Stitched Circle with Slate Gray ink.  Cut another circle from Basic Black cardstock, emboss it with the Subtle embossing folder and attach it to the stamped circle.  The sentiment is cut with the Happy Birthday Thinlit from Galvanized Metallic paper and attached with multi-purpose glue.  Last I added a couple of Clear Epoxy Droplets.


This second card uses a Gold Foil Edge card base (with matching gold foil edged envelope).  Cut a 3 3/4" X 5" piece of Merry Merlot cardstock for your first layer. Next, use the Winter Woods stamp set and Granite Gray ink to stamp the trees onto a 3 1/2" X 4 3/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock (or choose Shimmery White cardstock for some sparkle). Before attaching it to the card base tie a bow with the Merry Merlot & Copper reversible ribbon.   Simply BEAUTIFUL!!!

Well...that's it for today!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a FANTASTIC rest of you day!  Stay dry, warm and safe!
