ID: White Christmas Xmas card Class
with Sandra Niedermeir & Lorraine Cockle

Created: November 15, 2010

This past Saturday I took a card making class with Sandra & Lorraine, both of whom are fabulous teachers and card makers. We made a bevy of Xmas cards, tags & gift bag.

We were divided into 2 groups, and I was in the morning with Lorraine and the afternoon with Sandra.

I've forgotten the sequence of cards we made, but will try to put it as close as possible. I believe this was the first one. We were given all the elements including the pretty photo. We added glitter. Some of the parts were meant for the inside, but I rarely do inside of cards until I'm ready to give it to someone.

ID: Season's Joy
5.5"w x 8.75"h

Well this was another beautiful image we were given. I was meant to cut off part of the bottom to make a tag, but didn't realize that until later. C'est la vie. Added glitter and wrote in my own words


ID: Deco Angel
5"w x 6.5"h

We were given a rubber napkin based background piece with a light layer of gesso. Nice. We were meant to use it as a full background, with the angel on top, but I decided to cut it up and collage it. The pic looks bluish, but the actual colors are a deep purple, mauve and aqua.

ID: Accordion Snowflake - Holiday Greetings
5.5"w x 4"h (closed) opens to 11"

Part of the front square is cut out from the folded front piece and when closed matches up to the square on the back piece. We added the snowflakes, beads and rubber stamped the sentiment.

ID: Vintage Town  Scape
7"w x 7"h

This is a large card. We were given the napkin already adhered to a piece of cardstock, which we then did our own layering and embellishments. Most did the rubber sentiment on a larger piece of cardstock which obliterated the design. I didn't really like that so did a narrow sentiment instead. Love the image on the napkin. Added some gold punched out snowflakes.

ID: Father Xmas
5.5"w x 5.5"h

We added ribbon to parts of the house, sponged some color on the edges, cut out the person and layered them all together adding the metal corner  and bell.

ID: Noel
8.5"w x 3.5"h

Love this one. I've done it before with people's names and things, but that was quite some time ago. I also thought it would be perfect to do on my Cricut, so came home and did 3 of them with various words which you can see HERE.

This one was done with double sided cardstock which we then embellished and added stamped sentiments etc.

ID: Bits & Pieces

We made some bottle tags, and the cutest little shopping bag tag with the bag lady inside. Then we also got one of Tim's rosettes die cut, which we them folded and glued. It was meant to be part of the decorations on a decorated bag which I didn't get to finish.

ID: tags (unfinished)

We were given a bunch of torn papers in black and white and told to adhere them to another piece of cardstock with gel medium, when dried, to cut them out in tags. Some of my tags are a bit narrower since I wanted to use every bit of the decorated paper. We also had pieces of the black & white paper we cut off the bottom of our decorated piece for later use. Now I have to finish them...

ID: Pop up Building
7"w x 5"h

Love this pop up. I should have put this one as the last project with Lorraine. Anyway, we we given a template and then we scored and cut our slits and folded it, then layered it onto another piece of cardstock. I'm not in to crosses even if they're part of buildings, so I changed my design slightly to be more like a decorative star. We also dry embossed snowflakes and I punched a few as well.
