Christmas Card Workshop

The month of November - that means Christmas is next month.  Have you created enough Christmas cards to send out this year?  If not, this month's Christmas Card Workshop is the perfect time for you to complete a dozen cards.  Classes will be offered on Thursday evening, November 18 and also on Saturday afternoon, November 20. 

A whimsical tree from the Tannenbaum stamp set is used with two of the new colors introduced this year by Close To My Heart - Cotton Candy and Pear.

Two more of the new colors introduced by CTMH this year - Sky and Pacifica.  The beautiful Snow Flurries stamp image is embossed on Sky cardstock using Silver Pearl, and then Pacific ink is sponged on top to highlight the image.  A few Sparkles are added to highlight some snowflakes and a sentiment from Peace on Earth completes the card.   

The 'traditional' Christmas colors and papers are used to create this quick and elegant card.  Noel image is from the new Father Christmas stamp set and the diagonal stripe paper is from the Mistletoe paper packet
Another elegant card using the window image from the Father Christmas stamp set.  Colored pencils are used to add a bit of color to the window, and Liquid Applique is added to the gathering of snow at the bottom of each window pane.  The background paper is from the Vernanda kit. 

The Christmas Card Workshop will be offered on Thursday evening, November 18 (starting at 7 pm), and also on  Saturday afternoon, November 20 (starting at 1 pm).  You will create three of each of the four projects (total 12 cards) for a workshop fee of $10.  Allow approximately two to complete your projects.  Please be sure to bring your favorite adhesive.  All other supplies are provided with the workshop fee.  All stamps and papers used are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).

As an added bonus, place a $50+ order from the Close To My Heart  Spring, Summer, or Autumn/Winter Idea Book - and your workshop fee is waived.  Depending on total orders received, there will be a drawing for Hostess Rewards - so you could earn $25 or more in FREE product from CTMH.

Also, remember you can earn TWO stamp sets for FREE with a $100 order through the CTMH  "A Little MORE Thanks" promotion.  During the month of November, Close To My Heart is expressing their gratitude to you by helping you earn two fabulous My Acrylix® stamp sets for FREE!  When you place a minimum order of $100, you will not only receive the November Stamp of the Month set, A Little Thanks, for FREE, you will also receive one stamp set of your choosing from the 2010 Autumn/Winter Idea Book for FREE*!  This means you can increase the value of your purchase by up to $45.90—that’s almost 50 percent more in value!
