Believe in the Magic of Christmas–OCC Homework!


Hi Peeps!

Believe In the Magic of Christmas Day 1
(Click on the photo to enlarge.)

Popping in quickly to share a card that I created after watching the video lessons for the first day of the Holiday Workshop 2013 Online Card Class.  I’m hoping that this class will give my mojo a bit of a boost, as it’s been sorely lacking lately.  And maybe I’ll end up with some holiday cards that I can actually mail out – that would be a bonus, right?!  LOL

Believe in the Magic of Christmas Day 1 Inside

Part of today’s lesson was put on by Jennifer McGuire.  Her video showed how to create a z-fold card, and she carried her sentiment from the front of the card to the inside of the card via a banner.  I skipped the whole banner thing and kind of went my own way.  I created a z-fold card and stamped and heat embossed my sentiment on the inside of the card.

Here’s a close up of Rudolph’s red nose.  Heehee  I’d be happy to answer any questions about how I created this card – please feel free to email me.  I’ve listed the products I used below.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I’m off to crop with my girlie today – hopefully I can get more of my “homework” done there!  LOL  Have a great day!

I really like the fold to the card! It really makes the whole scene and it looks like it would be able to stand on it's own when it's closed.
