Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 128

 
Welcome to this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!
 
I've done it!  I've made my first Christmas Card of the season!   I fought it and fought it, but when I saw this week's sketch it reminded me of an idea I had for a workshop.  Details to come, but these are the first two cards for my 10-card Christmas Card Workshop in November.  Although there will only be five designs, each card will be different.  We're using the White Pines PML cards.  These cards are made for quick and easy scrapbooking along with the pocket pages CTMH carries, however, they are a great way to make a quick and easy card as well!  These cards do have quite a few with varying December dates, but we'll use them and alter them so that they make sense for the cards we're making.  (Although, really handy for a Countdown to Christmas kind of them!)  And after making the 10 cards, you'll have plenty left over for more cards or your scrapbook!


This card originally said December 14th, but I made a cute little embossed "25" embellishment for both cards and conveniently covered up the date on the PML card... easy peasy!
 

 
This card I used as is aside from cutting them both down to fit the design and then rounding the corners.  I made the poinsettias in the same fashion that I've been making the other flowers I've been using on everything... wet, squish, wet, squish and in this case I sprayed with some gold colour shine (for you, Tracey!)  :)
 
So stay tuned for the rest of the cards and more details on the November workshop!  Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to hop over to Atlantic Hearts Blog and join in! Nothing to lose and so much fun to gain!

  5. Can't wait until you get the full set done...love the poinsettias...think white poinsettias would be great too. I'll probably work on these at our hometown scrapping adventure.
