Better Late than Never!

Hello friends!

I had a fantastic group of ladies attend my card class in December. By this time, they may have been sick of Christmas cards but I still had (and still have) holiday stamps sets I hadn’t used yet! So…of the 3 cards, 2 were still Christmas. Enjoy!

This first card uses the No Peeking set out of the annual catalog. I used our markers to color the penguin. I so did not want to have to cut out the hat and scarf! For the sentiment, I used the Ornament punch – but you may not be able to tell.. One thing that is hard to see in these pictures is the glitter. Under the penguin, to mimic snow, (well there is glitter in Utah snow!LOL!) I used a marker in Baja Breeze, ran my glue pen over it and added Dazzling Diamonds. I think it’s really cute and I hope you do too!

The next card is decidedly more traditional – with classic Christmas colors. It was hard for me to leave the bottom more plain, but in the end just the tree cutout worked. The white from the inside layer made it pop. I also used my markers on the pearls for the first time. I love how it turned out!

The last card is my generic masculine card. To say generic – I just mean that you could really use any sentiment with it. I brought out one of my faves – Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set,  and let the girls do their thing. I love the new embossing folder! If only we had a hexagon punch!! I popped a few hexagons out for interest.
