Have A Wonderful Christmas

Hi there
Welcome back to my blog.

In my last post I mentioned that I taught a class last Saturday and the cards were Christmas themed. Here is card number 2 from that class.

I used DP from SEI and I just love that it has a resist design built in. Coloring with a beautiful blue ink applied with a sponge applicator brings out that gorgeous design.

I popped that on a silver mirror panel and attached the panel to a blue CS.

Next I made a flap, this is used to open and close the card.

Here is the card opened

The white panel inside hides most of the hinge piece. That scalloped circle has the sentiment on the front and I added a second scalloped circle on the backside, again to finish off the flap and hide the end of the hinge.

Stamps: Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3552 Bright Christmas
Paper/Card Stock
: Blue CS, White CS, Silver Mirror CS, DP SEI
Ink: VersaMark, Memento Danube Blue
Dies Used: Spellbinders Scalloped Circle
Accessories:Silver Detailed
 embossing powder

I am submitting this card in the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by today. Thursday, I will be showing my 3rd card from last Saturday's class. Hope you will be stopping back to take a peek.

Have a great week
