Creative Card Making - Snow Festival

On Monday night I was joined by my lovely Creative Card Class ladies.

The theme was quick, basic cards that require little or no stamping, and using as few bits of card as possible. We managed to make 8 cards from 4 sheets of A4 cardstock- we had 3 different shapes of card and the scraps went towards punched shapes or embellishments, so not a jot was wasted!

We used some of the card "toppers" (above) that are found in the Snow Festival Designer Series Paper, they have pictures and sentiments on them already, or spaces for you to add them.

There are two sheets of 16 toppers, making an incredible 32 in a pack, along with 10 other double-sided sheets of loveliness. At £9.95 this makes for a bargain pack of paper, perfect for all those seasonal cards and name tags:

We also made some mini notelet cards, Stampin' Up! have cute little envelopes that fit these: 

Super-quick cards that look brill and take no time at all: 


At the end of the class I gave the girls an envelope of cardstock and paper and they had a "freestyle" session to design two more, here are Jane and Wendy's cards:

Aren't they cute!?

If you are local to me and would like to come along to a class then please drop me a line to book your place. They are very informal and fun and cost £10 a head.

The next classes are being held on Monday 3rd and Thursday 6th December in my GU12 studio - please note these will not be seasonal cards this time around as we have done lots in class already.
