It’s that time everyone! Time to start thinking and planning your Christmas cards for this year! If you’re anything like me, you have put it off and will probably put it off some more. I know… it’s hard to think about Christmas when we just got the kids in school, isn’t it?
For September Stamp Club, we are going to create 3 “unique” Christmas cards. I must say, the cardinal card is my favorite but that is because I am CRAZY for Cardinals! They are the most elegant bird and the most BEAUTIFUL color ever! Cherry Cobbler suits the cardinal perfectly! I used Stampin‘ Up’s Two Step Bird punch to create the bird (punched 2 for more dimension). I used the 2nd wing to add that little “thing” on top of his head, and then punched a wing in black and snipped it to create the face. I sponged all the bird in Cherry Cobbler ink to make it pop! I just love this bird! I was inspired by a fellow demonstrator and I REALLY wish I remember who it was so I could give her credit (please email me if it’s you).
Our next card is an Easel card. My Club girls have been asking to do some embossing and I thought Dasher really needed to be embossed in gold. Isn’t it pretty?
The last card is a little different color combination than most holiday cards but I really like the uniqueness of the card. My upline, Leslie, created a card similar at Convention so I took her idea and created a snowflake card. We’ll be adding those fabulous Jewel rhinestones to the card (sorry, took the picture before I added them).
