Online Card Class - Days 1 & 2

Hi there blog friends!
I’m really enjoying the Holiday Card about inspiration!!! While waiting for my glittered snowflakes and embossing paste to dry, 2 of my cards were ready at about the same time, so I am sharing them both in this post. For Day 1 in the Holiday Card Workshop Class, my first card is inspired by Joy Taylor. I love her CAS style, and how she created an ombre effect for her positive and negative word die cut, so I used 3 shades of blue and the negative from my ‘Happy’ die for the front of this card:

Here is the inside, where I used the positive part of the die cut and part of a Hero Arts sentiment:

My 2nd card was inspired by Debby Hughes, who is known for creating with embossing paste and adding dimension to her cards and projects in a million different ways! I used 2 different shades of blue for the snowflakes, and popped up the one on the left with foam squares, following Savannah O’Gwynn’s technique, which she shared This Video
This is my card for Day 2:

Well, that’s it for me. I hope everyone is having a great day/evening ~ Thanks so much for stopping by!
