Dec. 1 Class at MFT Boutique

I am having such a good time teaching at MFT!  The ladies who come to class are the best! This month we did three Christmas cards.  The first was a Peek-a-boo card using Birdie Brown's Secret Santa stamp set.  When you look at the front of the card you see the two children with an empty Christmas stocking and a pillow before they head to dreamland.  

When you open the card the scene changes and you see Santa hiding behind the Christmas tree as he seems to say, "Shhhh, don't tell!"  So cute!

This fold is fun and is much easier to make than you'd expect.  There are lots of different tutorials on line if you'd like to try making a Peek-a-boo card.  What I like is that they can be made with lots of different style openings so they will fit almost anything that you can come up with!

For the second card we used MFT's Snow Special Stamps & Die-namics, Snow Drifts Cover-up and Essential Speech Bubbles dies.  The little penguins are so cute.  It was fun deciding which colors I should use on their little outfits!  The background is made with Ranger Distress Inks: Squeezed Lemonade, Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass and Broken China.  The Snow Drifts die was cut out of white card stock twice and then layered onto the background and the ground, penguins and sentiment were attached.

The final card was a simple one using MFT's Unbearabley Cute, Trio of Trees and Beary Best Friends stamps and Die-namics.  Filled With Joy Die-namics was also used for the snowflake behind the trees. The background panel was inked softly with Berrylicious and Grape Jelly ink.  The trees were stamped with the same two colors and clear glitter was added to the trunk and branches.  The sleepy polar bear was colored with Copic markers.  The bottom of the panel has a 4 x 3 piece of patterned paper from the Petite Plaid Paper Pack from MFT.  The sentiment was stamped onto white card stock cut with Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strip Die-namics.  

I hope you enjoyed seeing my cards today.  Try to stay calm during this very busy month!  Happy Holidays :)
