Contempo Christmas...

Well this week saw my latest class and here are the cards that we made - I have chosen to use cherry cobbler, night of navy and whisper white for a traditional Christmas theme I loved preparing this class and I think that these cards are just the right thing to get you into the Christmas mood... After the European Stampin' Up! Convention that is next week I will be making many a Christmas card and gift for the orders that I am taking and also a  craft fair or two!
So for these cards I have created three different designs the first very simple but I think very effective, I have used a night of navy blank and inked the edges, matting this with whisper white and then again with cherry cobbler. In the centre of this I then added a piece of whisper white where I have inked the edges in night of navy. I have stamped the sentiment from the Contempo Christmas set in night of navy to the centre of this panel and added a bauble on dimensionals to the centre also. To finish off the bauble I have added night of navy ribbon as the string.

The second card I used a rich cobbler blank and inked the edges and to this I have added a night of navy panel and inked the edges and then a piece of whisper white. I have stamped three baubles two night of navy and one rich cobbler, the middle one popped up on dimensionals. I have stamped the sentiment from the stamp set  in night of navy to the bottom centre of the card.

The final card in the set is using the technique that we were shown at the recent regional training I attended where we had to stamp three of the baubles and fold them in half sticking them together to make a 3D bauble on the card. For this card I have used again a night of navy again with a cherry cobbler mat with a whisper white on top of this one. I have added the 3D bauble to the centre of the card and added gold elastic thread to the top of the bauble for the string. The sentiment added to the bottom centre of the card to complete it.

I hope you like these cards and if you would like to purchase this stamp set please get in touch. Thanks for looking and your comments are appreciated - Debbi x x x
