A touch of elegance

Today was my first card class at the local community centre.  A lovely bunch of ladies who were very patient, thank you all for making my first class loads of fun. 


Our first card was the rather elegant Dasher.  He is stamped using Craft Whisper White ink and with heat and stick, glittered using dazzling diamonds.  The black card stock is then mounted onto bride speciality paper (Unfortunately no longer available).  Merry Christmas is stamped in white and the card is finished off with whisper white satin ribbon.  

Our second card was made using kraft card stock with not quite navy card stock as a background.  A strip of whisper white with a scalloped edge gives a perfect snowy background for the trees from the seasons of joy set. The trees are stamped using old olive and merry christmas has been stamped in not quite navy.

Both cards were decorated on the inside too. 

My ladies were wonderful at carrying out my rather confusing instructions when at one point I think we were making two cards at once.  At least we shared a laugh! I promise it will be calmer next week!

This dasher card has to be one of my favourites - I love the black and white colour scheme - very classy! You've certainly been a busy bee this past week - hopefully catch up with you onThurs.
