Workshop December 10, 2016 Summary - Part 2 of 2

Every year I enjoy sharing this holiday workshop dedicated to making 4 different cards.   One for Jesus.   One for Fun.   One for Peace.  One for Thanks.   The cards were fun for the workshop attendees and they all took home lovely, usable cards to share.    

On two of the cards, I chose not to add more color because I thought the stamped figures were just perfect the way they were.  If you would like to kick up the design a little, I recommend adding Wink-of-Stella Gold on head areas or color the figures in completely.   You could highlight the mice presents with gold as well.  

Card for Peace     This one is special for a table decoration and as a little bread & butter gift to a hostess during the holiday.

  • Stamp Set - Jar of Cheer, Jar of Love
  • Framelits - Everyday Jars
  • Embossing Folder - Woodland
  • Card Stock - Tip Top Taupe - 11"x4 1/4", score at 5 1/2", 2 3/4", and 5 1/2"x4 1/4".    Cherry Cobbler - 2 1/2"x1".       Very Vanilla 1 3/4"x1".  Vellum - 2 1/2"x4".
  • Adhesives - glue dots, Tombo Glue, Dimensionals
  • Wink of Stella - Gold
  • Ink - Black Stazon, markers in yellow, green and red
  • Rhinestone
  • Directions:  stamp the jar and candle image on the vellum; sit aside to completely dry.   When dry, use the markers and wink of stella to add color to the candle.   Using the jar shape frame lit, place the 5 1/2"x4 1/4" card stock on the scored card stock base.  Cut the jar in the middle of both pieces of card stock.   Stamp message below jar outline of 5 1/2"x4 1/4" sheet and add Woodland embossing image.   Glue dot the vellum on the inside and use Tombo glue on only lower half of sheet of folded down card base.   I used the stamp "You Light Up My Life"  from Jar of Love on the Cherry Cobbler piece and placed it to hold back the jar image and leave enough room for a battery tea light.   The place holder needs 4 dimensionals to raise it up to hold the jar candle image in place.

  • Pearl Basic Jewels for end of snow cap 
  • Directions - stamp the card first with the snowman and then stamp the tree and without re-inking, stamp a shadow to give the trees some depth.   Add some color to the snowman and then emboss with Softly Falling snow folder.   I added the word THANKS from the Jar of Love stamp set.   Tape the Whisper White to the Emerald Envy card base to nicely outline the card.
