I took a 3 hour workshop on making cards this year and was excited to learn some new things so I decided to do some paper crafting for Christmas.

I made this set of Christmas cards for one, and they are A2 sized, so fit nicely into A2 card envelopes from Staples, so I did not bother making my own envelopes for them.



They are tent cards, so they are designed to just open up and sit nicely on a flat surface without callapsing, and the sentiment can be written on the back.  I used plain white and coloured cardstock, and some patterned paper from a pack from Michaels.



I cut a background of plaid paper, and wrapped a wide piece of gold ribbon around it about 1/3rd of the way down.  I then die cut different sizes of ornaments from different cardstock.  The centre of the large ornament is decorated with a circle cut piece of patterned stationary paper I bought on sale at Staples at the end of last Christmas, and stamped the greeting on.  I used gel pens to add some high lighting to the lettering and to decorate some parts of the ornaments.  



The second ornament is popped up a bit with foam to add some dimension, and the small one is decorated with metallic washi tape that was textured with little circles - from a retractable pen tip.



I stamped another greeting on the back and highlighted that with gel pen too.

I think they turned out pretty cute considering I am pretty new to paper crafting - I turned on to it by a fellow craftster who was a swap partner and also a Stamping Up rep who inspired me.

Here is my blog entry about them too

Darling cards.  These are the types that are sold in high end boutiques.

I love creative workshops of any kind - often, beyond just learning a new craft or new techniques, it's so invigorating and fun to share time with like minded people, and I can often learn even more from the participants, as well as the teacher, including new resources for supplies
