10/17 Christmas Tag Card


One of my very favorite swap cards that I received at Founder's Circle was a card created by Caroline LeBel, a top demonstrator from Toronto, ON Canada. I changed just a few things about it . . . I used a different sentiment, eliminated a brad, added a bow, used a different Textured Impressions Folder, and popped my tag up on Stampin' Dimensionals. But these changes are minor, truly all the credit goes to Caroline for this outstanding design and color combo! It is one of the cards that my customers will be making at my Christmas Dozen next week. If you are local and would to come, just e-mail me and we can certainly accommodate you! The cost of this class is $18 for 12 cards. When you sign up to attend in October and November you will get the December Christmas Dozen class at 1/2 off!

Did you notice the lovely frosted sheen on the embossed flowers? Yes . . . Frost White Shimmer paint is lightly sponged over the surface of the card after it has been embossed. A delightful touch and one of the reasons I can't stop looking at this card! Again . . . it's those little things that make such a difference in the overall look and feel of a card.

This is lovely, Kay! I really like how you enhanced the embossed background. Thanks for the inspiration!
Oh Kay, this is absolutely stunning! Makes me wish I'd gotten that embossing folder. But wait - I still can! Thanks for enabling!
