I don't even know what the name of this card style is...maybe some sort of pop-up? All I know is I learned from my upline, as she did it at one of my workshops earlier this year. Tabatha wanted a Christmas card and a "thank you" card, so I used the card I posted earlier HERE, the top card, and we just used a different sentiment. I actually just brought all of my sentiments so the guests could choose their own, which I think they appreciated.
Colors used were slightly atypical for Christmas, which I liked. I'm trying to branch out and try new styles and color combos. This is Whisper White, Old Olive, and Rich Razzleberry. Its pretty striking, I think. I used an embossing folder on the background (something called Dots...Perfect Dots, maybe? Golly, I need to brush up on my terminology!), as well as the big snowflake die for the Big Shot. Used Whisper White Craft Ink on the sentiment and then heat embossed in Iridescent Ice EP. Seriously that is one of my all-time favorite things...I'll be sad if SU ever gets rid of it! I love putting it on all cards, especially Christmas ones. Fortunately I have a couple of prospects for workshops in the new year, so I'm very excited! I really want to get this into an avid business.
