November Card Class Crafty Makes

We had another lovely card class afternoon yesterday. We welcomed a new lady and bid a Merry Christmas to our two cruising ladies who won't be able to attend our December card class. We had a lovely afternoon of chatting and mincemeat orange cake and coffee ;0)
Here are two of the cards we made yesterday. This was our card class finisher (which I always like to keep quite simple as sometimes we chat so much we run out of time). This was a simple wreath made from the larger Scallop Circle punch embossed with the Petals-A-Plenty Embossing Folder. We then punched a circle from the centre and embellished with Basic Rhinestones (super sparkly!). This was set against a white embossed background which was edged with the Scallop Ribbon Border Punch (Old Olive). The bow was made with Old Olive Scallop Dots Ribbon and the sentiment was stamped using More Merry Messages.
 This was our luxury card for Christmas. This was inspired by this card I had seen on Pinterest. We used the brayering ink on the embossing folder technique for the background. We brayered Crumb Cake on to the Lacy Brocade Embossing folder and then ran a piece of Naturals Ivory card through the Big Shot. This is almost a reverse coredinations style effect. We then stamped the the Ornament Keepsakes images in Soft Suede, Crumb Cake & Chocolate Chip and cut the coordinating Holiday Ornaments shapes from Champagne Glimmer Paper and layered them up (with some creative cutting and trimming to show as much of the glimmer as possible). We layered the embossed layer on to brushed gold cardstock and then on to a Naturals Ivory base and embellished with Basic Pearls.

Thanks for stopping by this bright and chilly Sunday morning. Hope you are all having a lovely weekend. We are wrapping up and staying warm in this household. The only one without a cold at the moment is Summer. She is most certainly full of beans. Sam and I are taking it in turns to try and keep up with her ;0)

Happy Sunday Crafting
