I'm already thinking about Christmas

I can't help it.  Try as I might to set my mind on making autumn cards, I find myself making another Christmas card.  I've been coming up with different designs so I can choose what I want to offer at my October stamp camp.  I will offer at least three -- maybe four -- different cards.

I wasn't happy with my snowflake card until I put the Frosted Finished Embellishments in the center of the snowflake.  Perfect!  The silver embossing powder was used both on the snowflake and the sentiment.

Stamp Sets:  Festive Flurry stamp set, More Merry Messages
Big Shot:  Festive Flurry Framelits Dies 
Cardstock:  Night of Navy, Smoky Slate
Other:  Silver Emboss Powder

I had some fun playing with the Circle Card Thinlits Die.  I used Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder on Coastal Cabana cardstock for the snowflake.  Once again, it was the Frosted Finished Embellishments placed in the center of the snowflake to save the day.

Here's the card opened.  I left the right side of the circle (with the saying) blank so I could sign the card there.  By the way, the Merry Christmas is heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Stamp Sets:  Christmas Messages, More Merry Messages
Big Shot:  Festive Flurry Framelits Dies,  Circle Card Thinlits Die
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Smoky Slate, Coastal Cabana
DSP:  Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper
Other:  Silver Emboss Powder

The card below is a tried and true design, but I think it will be fun to do in class.  Besides, that stamp set sentiment is perfect for this card.

Stamp Sets:  More Merry Messages
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Real Red, Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, Gumball Green, Pacific Point, Melon Mambo
Other:  Dazzling Details (on the light bulbs)

Thanks for coming by to see the cards.
