Snowman Card and card class photos


Hello!  So last night I taught another card making class at my local Ben Franklin and this time around the theme was Christmas cards.  When looking for inspiration for the card I decided to CASE Christina's recent card (scroll down to the tags).  I love that everyone in the class decided to accessorize their snowman in different ways, too fun!  Below are a few snapshots from the class, my next class will be holiday tags, November 28th at 6pm.  And since I can't seem to post something with a challenge this card works well for the Lawnscaping Challenge "dust 'em off"-- while I've used the Lawn Fawn set, I realized when looking for snowflakes that I've had the PTI Winter Penguin set for awhile and haven't used most of the stamps on there.  Which means this project also works well for the new A Passion for Papertrey challenge too.  And one last challenge-- since A Blog Named Hero is doing a fun Hero Arts/Lawn Fawn week I thought this would be a perfect addition to their latest challenge "Use a die cut or punch", I think adding tags to cards is a great to add another layer (for the CAS girl).


Materials: Lawn Fawn Frosty Friends, Hero Arts Miracle of the Holiday Christmas sentiment, Tim Holtz and PTI snowflakes, Stampendous white embossing powder, PTI aqua mist and rustic white card stock, Echo Park Very Merry Christmas patterned paper, May Arts White Sheer with Diagonal Stripes Ribbon, Twinery Charcoal twine, PTI Tag It Sale die, Versafine black ink, water color pencil, Martha Stewart scor-pal, Spellbinders circle die, white scrap paper
