Holiday Style Class: Day 1

Hello!! Just a quick post to show the two cards I created for my homework for the Holiday Style Class. It is only the first day and I am loving it!!

I used Laurie's techniques to create two cards. One is a holiday card and one is a non holiday card.

I used Festive Berries Distress Ink to do the shading at the bottom. Instead of just the holly, I added a few more sprigs to jazz the card up a bit. I added clear Wink of Stella onto the large sprig of berries and glossy accents to the holly berries.

On my second card, I did non holiday theme.

I blended Mustard Seed Distress ink and then stamped some sunflowers inside the blending. I then wrapped some jute along the edge and added a tag.

I die cut the sentiment out of brown card stock and added a gold enamel dot for the i. I love this technique and will be using it again for some simple cards.

I thank you for looking!! Have a great day!

Beautifully done. I love the arrangement of holly and berries - it is shown off beautifully with just the sponged angled background! And your "smile" card will bring smiles!!
