Crank out those Cards!

Catherine Projects

It's time for my first Christmas Card Crank…there will be one each month through Oct. on the 25th.  Registration for Monday's class closes tomorrow, so head on over to the events page to sign up!  You can even get this class to go.  I will send you all your pieces stamped, you just assemble!

I worked on the cards yesterday and had a bit of trouble getting into the spirit!  Here is a sneak peek.

I had no problem with the Chocolate and Red card using Deer Friends (ahem!  You can get that one for free when you host a workshop for me!  hint, hint…)  I LOVE that card!  Gingerbread Men, gingham ribbon, oh, yeah!

Then, I am just smitten with the ornament in the new Holiday Trinkets stamp set…and I always have to do at least one card in pink.  Love me some pink Christmas cards!

So, I stamped the ornament in craft ink and threw on some Irridescent Ice Embossing Powder and viola!  A sparkly pink ornament.  love, love…it also needed a bow.  So I used last year's silver cord.  shh!  It's not available right now..check Oct. 1 in the mini catalog.

Here is the first attempt:

My friend Erika said, “well…I'm not sure what that Rose Red strip is for.”  What's it for??!!  It's to look pretty!  Geez, what's with her?  Then she said, “it needs to be striped”.   All I had was some striped Pretty in Pink and that was just too pink for her.  I just couldn't win.

So here is attempt #2.

I liked this one a bit better, but didn't have Erika here to approve.  So here is attempt #3, and guess what!?  The 3rd one's a charm!  What do you think?  You can't tell, but the ornament is stamped on the delicious Shimmery White cardstock.
