Holiday Card Workshop Day 4

Hi there blog friends ~ I have 2 more cards to share today!

My first card was inspired by Shari Carroll’s videos in Monday’s class, and it’s a fairly literal interpretation of one her cards. I wanted to add some texture to the card, so I embossed the front panel with my Impression Plate, then  stamped my Lawn Fawn tree stamps from the ‘Let it Snow’ set with Hero Arts Shadow Inks. I added a strip of cardstock and patterned paper, then embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder. Fianlly, I added my Lawn Fawn snowflake sequins and tied off the small stamped panel with twine. 



For my 2nd card, I inked up my brand new Hero Arts Patterned Snow stamp with Versamark, then inked it with Pool shadow ink and heat set with clear embossing powder it to give a little shine. I embossed the background with the large snowflake stamp from Lawn Fawn and embossed it in white, then added some sequins...and it was done!

I would like to enter this card in the Hero Arts Holiday Challenge

I hope everyone is doing well ~ We have another class at Holiday Card Workshop today, and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us...every class has been excellent so far! Thanks so much for stopping by!
