A joyful Christmas card!!

I have been working on clearing the back log of card kits I have on my desk from past classes.  This kit was a Valentine's one so I dug through my greeting stash and found this perfect greeting which was gold embossed.  I trimmed it a bit, layered it onto red and added some gold embroidery thread in loops on the back.  A technique which I have seen on Splitcoast Stampers lately!! I used regular tape to secure the thread on the back of the greeting.  I glued decorative paper to the front of the red card, added the gold strip then layered on the large greeting I had created!!
It is one more Christmas card for my stash!!  I have been remiss in getting my Christmas cards made for January and February so this is a start!!


Card kits available for this weekend

Knowing the praticality of card kits I have decided to put a few together for an event this coming weekend.  I know several are enthusiastic card makers and this would be a way for them to have fun making cards without buying supplies and tools!!  I simply packaged card kits that I created for this class in a cellophane sleeve, added a display tag and the instructions too.  They are all occasion cards with the papers and greetings visible with one on each side.  So we shall see!!
