Christmas Greetings for my Card Class!

Hello Everyone!

Thank you for peeking back for Today’s Card!

Today’s Card is the Card we made for my November Card Class.

Originally the Class was scheduled for Sept 5th, but I was returning from a trip up North on that day, so I postponed the Class to Sept 12th…well, as we all know Hurricane Florence had other plans, and that Class was cancelled, due to the impending Storm!

The following month, October 3rd…it was just too soon after the devastation from Hurricane Florence, to even think about a Class…many were still gutting their homes, due to flood damage, wind damage, etc.,.

We all felt it was a good time on November 7th, to return to some fun, and fellowship of we ‘Card Makers’! The following Card is the Card we made…it was originally scheduled for the September Class! Now it made it’s debut!

 

Here is the ‘Bridge Card’ we made!

I used the Alpine Adventure Stamp Set, along with the Alpine Sports Thinlits to stamp and cut out all the Sports Equipment for the Card…oh, the gifts too!

 

Here is another angle, so you can see how the card is made!

We found that we had to trim the skis down, they were just too long!

 

Instead of an ‘inside’ of the Card, we have a ‘back’ of the Card!

So happy we were able to all get together and share some time together!

I do have to say…I missed them ALL!

We decided that for December’s Class…we’d make a Birthday Card!

Kind of Gender Neutral…I have just the Card I’d like to teach!
