Christmas Card Workshop - It's Snowing!

It's time for the final CTMH Christmas Card Workshop of the season - and the theme of the cards seems to be SNOW. In addition to creating 12 fun cards (3 each of 4 different designs), everyone who attends will also create one of these adorable little snowman Tic Tac candy holders. These are really simple to make using the Snow Friends stamp set, and are a great little gift to give.

This card made using the Snow Flurries stamp set is one of my favorites. The 'snow flurry' is simply embossed in white, and several small pearls are added as a finishing touch. Each class participant will receive a package of 48 self-adhesive pearls in a variety of sizes. You will have plenty of pearls to decorate your cards, and still have left-overs to use on other projects.

A tree from the versatile Four Seasons stamp set is used with plaid paper from the Aspen packet and the Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder to create a simple, yet very pretty winter card.

Close To My Heart's new Christmas paper this year is Jingle, and has fun colors and patterns which are a bit more whimsical than traditional. The Jingle papers are used along with the Holiday Trinkets stamp set and some Prisma Glitter to create a quick and easy Christmas card.

The November workshop will be offered on Friday evening, November 20 (starting at 7 pm) and also Saturday afternoon, November 21 (at 1 pm). Whichever day you choose to attend, the cards will be the same. You will create 4 cards each of 3 different designs - a total of 12 cards and matching envelopes for $15. You will also create the Snowman Tic Tac 'bonus project' and receive a package of 48 self-adhesive pearls. All supplies are included and pre-cut for you. You just need to bring your own favorite adhesive, stamp your images, and assemble your cards.

Please let me know if you would like to attend one of the Christmas Card workshops in November. Feel free to leave me a comment on this blog, send an email to, or call 913-485-4355. Even if you can't attend, I would love to read any comments you may have for the blog. :)
