It's starting to look like Christmas around here!
I have got glitter all over the dang place.....but I love it!!
Last night, being Tuesday, was another FREE on-line class at Cornish Heritage Farms!!
I missed a couple of the classes when we were on vacation, but I didn't skip a beat and got right back into the groove!
Last night Kristine Reynolds provided some inspiration into mass producing cards with glitter!! She outlined all the steps to make a beautiful set of Christmas cards!
There were only TWO measurements in the whole set of instructions, and I, of course, managed to screw up one of them. I get reading so fast and think that I know it all already and skimmed right over the 1 1/4" cut and made my red paper 1 1/2".
Now you wouldn't think that this is too much of a difference, and I managed to hide it quite well, I think, but honestly!! when you are given a great set of instructions, why can't I just follow them??!
So next time Bonnie, smarten up.
Without any further self trashing.......here are my glitter-y cards!!
There are actually 8 cards altogether, 4 of each kind, but when I took the picture I only had three snowmen and one tree set done.
Now Kristine's instructions were to tie your Christmas-y the ribbon around the top of the card which look beautiful on her cards.
Since I didn't "listen" and my red piece of cardstock was cut 1 1/2" instead of 1 1/4" I didn't have enough room at the top of my card for the ribbon - so I thought, since I had all that pretty glitter, I would add some more glitter in the shape of a ribbon at the bottom across the seam. ETA: It really is rick rack ribbon - I didn't mean "shape" literally!
It turned out pretty anyway, I think, and really can you ever have enough GLITTER!!?!
NO, you can never have enough GLITTER!! yay!!
