These cold temperatures are a chilly reminder that Christmas will be here before you know it! In class this month, we will get started on our Christmas cards using the Photo Play Christmas Memories paper collection. With rich colors and beautiful seasonal motifs, these cards have a little bit of everything! We’re adding lots of textures with specialty papers, velvet paper, and sparkles of bling here and there! Our favorite little fox is making a holiday appearance as Santa’s elf and we have a vintage sled and a layered cardinal along with several other features.
There is a little simple coloring, the samples were done using the popular Nuvo alcohol markers Black, 375 (red), 414 (golden yellow) and 412 (medium green). Comparable Copics are 100, R27, Y17, and YG17. You will also need a sparkle/glitter marker like the Spectrum Noir Sparkle marker, a white gel pen, and a black Signo pen. Bring along a metallic silver marker if you have one. For ink pads, bring a dark red (like Memento Rhubarb Stalk), dark green (like Memento Northern Pine) and black if you have them. We will have these inks available to use in class, but you are also welcome to bring your own if you don’t want to wait your turn to use ours. We will also use Distress Oxide ink in Fossilized Amber and you will need a sponge tool or dauber.
You will need your basic supply kit (wet and dry adhesive, foam tape, pop dots, bone folder, tweezers, scissors) for this class as well as your paper trimmer for simple cutting of some of the card layers. We have a lot of small details on our cards this month and I highly recommend that you purchase the Darice Adhesive Foam Strips ($2.29) from the shop when you come to class. They make elevating thin elements on cards so easy!!! Remember that I am always happy to help you with any cutting! Just let me know if you would like any help with cutting or would rather I just take care of it all together!
