Christmas Card Camp

Saturday, October 9, 2010 - FULL
Time: 11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Cost: $50.00 tax included

World Card Making Day is the first Saturday of October. Due to my girlfriend's wedding on that day, DAT'S will be celebrating World Card Making Day the following weekend. I know it is Thanksgiving weekend, but it's the best I can do with the other events going on around the same time.

The challenge that I gave myself for this year's Christmas Card Camp was to use the same image stamp on all three cards and to only use sentiments from one stamp set and all the stamps had to come from the same company. Also, I wanted to keep the cards as flat as possible so that they are easier to mail out. I am very happy with what I came up with.

Each participant at this workshop will receive a:
~ CC Design Swiss Pixies Heidi with Ornament Rubber Stamp
~ CC Design Amy R Winter Sentiments Rubber Stamp Set
~ All the supplies to make 2 of each of the above cards

Some of the fun tools & supplies that we will be using during this workshop are:
~ Copic Air Brush System
~ Copic Markers
~ Smooch
~ Punches
~ EK Mini Fastenater
~ Ribbon & Brads
~ Spellbinder Nestabilities

We will be completing the inside of each of the cards, but I ran out of time to get the insides completed in time for registration this week. Once they are completed I will post the inside of the cards in this posting.

These cards look much better in person. I tried shooting these cards outside, inside & upside down, but I could not capture the true colours of these cards.
