Holiday Style Online Card Class: Day 1

Wow! So many ideas today...makes the class worth the investment already! I haven't bought anything new to take it, just using supplies that I already have...

Here's my first card after Laurie Willison's sample...


I did think of thirds... and using the PTI Deck the Halls wreath, it worked up quickly. Colors are Red Poppy and Ripe Avocado, and the die cuts used the same shades. I was a bit disappointed with the red color... looks more like dark pink!




My second card is pretty much copied from Julie's card. I used the PTI Evergreens and a Santa from an old set that I had with the greeting cut, so the inside says, and to all a goodnight!

I didn't emboss the snowflakes though, I used paste instead with a small circle stencil. Love how it came out.... except- next time I won't use the lines on the border like Julie did. Mine are awful! Hers are nice and straight and the same thickness all around :)

Didn't get to try Debby's card because I don't have a die like she does... I'll have to figure out a way to use what I have to make it work...

Your cards turned out great! Isn't it fun to see what we have on hand to make use of the great ideas shared?!

Your cards are lovely. Not to worry about the lines you don't like. My Copic teacher says that the little imperfections are priceless because they show that our work is done specially by hand and is a one of a kind. Even if we make multiple cards, they're not exactly the same. I didn't even notice the lines because my eyes were drawn to the focal point. :o)
