Hello everyone!! I’m here with my homework from Day 4 from my Online Card Class Holiday Card Workshop. I’m so happy I’m able to complete some of my homework. There are times when I don’t get to finish all my assignments, so to be able to get them done this time around is great for me.
Day 4 lessons focused on One-Layer Cards.
Our instructors today were:
1. Jennifer McGuire with a Window Card
2. Laura Bassen with Create a Scene
3. Julie Ebersole with Simple Masking
Now on to my cards. Lets start with:
1. Jennifer taught us a double partial die cutting trick. I really love this technique and will be using it on more of my cards.
Here is my card:
Yes, this card has two separate die cuts. Can you believe that? I know, neat isn’t it.
Lets look at the inside of the card:
I heat embossed my sentiment, cut a circle stencil and inked my circle with distress inks. I add clear wink of stella to the circle. I colored a piece of white cardstock with the same Copic marker I used on the snowman’s buttons. I punch a heart and adhered it to the circle.
I loved the card so much I made another. Take a look at my second card:
Isn’t this Santa just the cutest you’ve seen. I really like my coloring of this Santa. I’m not to fond of the background but it will do.
In fact the snowman should have this background and the Santa should have the other background.
Take a look at the inside of the card:
I think I put to much glitter on this circle. What do you think?
Now on to the next card:
2. Julie taught us how to mask off an area and stamp in that area to create a silhouette.
I’m not sold on my card but I tried, take a look:
Julie used die cut of a deer with antlers, her cards look so much better. I have to give this technique another try.
Julie created another card that I will try to do tomorrow. I also have to work on the card Laura taught us.
I will be back tomorrow with those cards. Stay tuned!!
