This month's class makes


I decided it was time to think about Christmas - gulp - as there are only really two classes, Oct & Nov for making Christmas cards, as by December it's too late. So I ordered one of the new SU Christmas stamps sets, along with a very handy matching punch (I love how SU have matching punches for some of their stamps)

The idea for the first card (the turquoise & brown) came from a card I saw on ILWS by Carol Houghton, she'd used the branches from the Bird Punch and I though that was a great idea and have cased it - thanks Carol

Here's the details:

Stamps - Delightful Decorations; Best Yet - sentiment(retired)
Cardstock - Tempting Turquoise (retired) Green Galore; Chocolate Chip & Whisper White
Ink - Tempting Turquoise; Chocolate Chip
Punches - Two Step Bird; Ornament Extra Large

The second card is all my own, I was going to use one of the new red colours, but I just love Real Red for Christmas especially combined with Old Olive - here's the details:

Stamps - Delightful Decorations
Cardstock - Real Red; Old Olive; Very Vanilla
Ink - Real Red
DSP - Merry Moments (retired)

Both cards are quite simple and quick to make, the idea being they'd be suitable for a bit of mass producing for Christmas - I know I'll be doing a few of these this year - so easy with the punch!
