Online Holiday Card Class - Day 2

Having great fun making cards with teachers Jennifer McGuire, Laura Bassen, Kristina Werner, and Debbie Hughes today.  There were six card today, but I have finished only four so far.  Maybe you can get a few ideas for your own Christmas cards.

This is a layered die cut inlay card and a brand new technique to me.  It is perfectly smooth on the card front.

This card features an acetate window frame.  The window frame opens separately from the card and has embossed snowflakes adhered front and back of the acetate.  A really cool  idea.

Here, you see the use of negative and positive die cuts of snowflakes.  The second snow hill is mounted and sits up above the snowflake behind it.  The snowflakes are covered with Vintage Glass Glitter.  It's really a pretty card but this picture doesn't do it justice.

Plain and simple, yet quite striking in red and white, featuring a white wood grain label, saddle stitch ribbon, and die cut poinsettia.
Now I need to get Monday's class cards made and then get ready for the Friday class.  We have classes on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of next week, too.  Oh, the joy of card making!
