Christmas in July Class Card Info

Hi there!

I have had a busy couple of weeks with work, classes and preparing for our Stamptacular (I cant believe this is next week!!!).  We are also looking for another house - and this is soooo frustrating.  Lots of really nice looking houses, but when you have a look around the local areas they are so different to the descriptions by estate agents!  Oh, well we'll have to just keep looking I suppose...

Anyway, here are some of the details of the cards we made on Saturday in the Christmas in July class.  I will post details of the rest of the cards soon.

This is the first card we made showing how to use the wheels and heat embossing.  Some of the ladies had never used either technique so the ohhhhs and ahhhhs were lovely to hear.

The Scandinavian Wheel was inked with Versamark and then rolled along the top and bottom of the card blank.

Then the tree image was inked in Versamark and stamped directly onto the card and a second image stamped onto a small scrap of card - we just focused on the flower part of the tree for the second image.  These were then heat embossed using white embossing powder.  The flower was totally covered in Chrystal Effects, covered in Dazzling Diamonds and then left to dry.

To finish off the card we cut out the flower and punched a hole in the centre.  A chrystal brad was pushed through the hole and it was then mounted it on a dimensional.  The card insert was also rolled with the wheel to give a professional finish.  So simple but really effective!

The Dasher card details are here.

  1. You've tempted me to get my Scandinavian set back out again. I used it sooo much last year, it's such a fantastic design for adding a bit of glitter to.
