I am back with another card, actually set of cards that I made with help of MISTI by My Sweet Petunia and a class by mail announcement.
I love so much this bundle (Christmas Pines) that I decided to offer a class by mail. The price of the class is $25 and you will receive pre-cut supplies to make 5 cards (including envelopes) and a box to store the cards. Along with the supplies you will receive a pdf with instructions for all the cards.
To complete the projects you will need the Christmas Pines set, ink pads, adhesives of choice, dimensionals etc.
The kit will ship at the end of October. If you want to purchase the set or the bundle with the dies, leave me a note when ordering your kit and I will send you an invoice (the bundle is $54.75 before tax and shipping, the set only is $35 before tax and shipping and the dies only are $26 before tax and shipping). Shipping is included in the price and it's only for US customers. To register just click on the Add to Cart button below.
Note: there is still time to register for the Ornament and Snow Globe kits HERE
Now onto the card(s). I kept the design pretty simple, since the color layering adds a lot of interest! I first stamped the first layer of the branches, then using the MISTI I stamped the second layer, then I stamped again using Versamark ink and embossed with Iridescent embossing powder. Next I stamped again the brances (the first layer) offsetting them for a little bit and repeated the process. For the pinecones I did the same, only this time there were 3 layers, I positioned everything with my MISTI and then the last layer was stamped 2nd time with versamark and embossed. I LOVE how the cards turned out. For the bows, I made my own glitter paper. I dabbed versamark onto Real Red cardstock, then embossed with the red glitter embossing powder. Next I cut the bows, dabbed again versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder, and repeated again with versamark and red glitter embossing powder. This made the little bows thicker and with little more dimension. Then assembled my cards ;)
