Hello Stamping Friends,
Today I will spotlight the Christmas Magic Diamond Fold Card Class I held in November. The class fee included your choice of the wood or clear Christmas Magic Stamp set, card instructions, two kits and a luncheon. I loved this stamp set. It reminded me of the Polar Express train and the Polar Express production my third grade class put on years ago.
The tables are set:
I changed a few things on the front and used a Garden Green background. The banner is mounted so the card stands nicely like an easel card. I added two sizes of rhinestones for the front train lights and I used a silver Sharpie to add dimension to the bell. I stamped just a little of the train smoke on the North Pole side to make it look like a scene. Our Acrylic Block size D was exactly the size of the middle square making it easy to position the train. The three little red dots on the greeting use the retired cupcake punch and red glimmer paper and the leaf is from the Square Pillow Box Thinlits as is the snowflake shown here:
Not having to design the front gave me opportunity to design something special for the back to truly make it a “Carin’ Card” as my husband so fondly states:
Above is the card which I used at the class and had drawn in the red and white striped ribbon between the bells. When I made more to send I used the other greeting from the set and drew in a solid red ribbon since I ran out of the little white striped ribbon (retired product).
The bells are stamped just like a Triple Time Technique. Use just a bit of snail to hold the white in place and stamp on the white and green. After stamping the bell, remove the white and mount to the black border then reattach to the green for a great image! If you measure carefully on the second bell on each side, when you close the card you will get two ribbons that match, (I am asking Santa for a camera so I don’t struggle focusing my phone camera). I love the bells in the Christmas Magic stamp set. I used them on the envelopes as well.
We broke at noon for salad and baked potato broccoli cheddar soup.
Thanks for coming Kris, Virginia and Sheri! It was a fun day!
