“Holiday Style” homework

Almost exactly one year ago, I attended my very first interactive Online Card Class: Holiday Style. I had done three classes prior to this one but all of them were already in independent mode. You can probably imagine how excited I was to finally attend an interactive class!

I was determined to do “homework” on all days of class but, unfortunately, I was unable to do so because my crafting supplies were very limited back then. For instance, on Day 9 the theme was Soft & Subtle Cards but I had no vellum or watercolours to make such cards. I did, however, make the following four cards for this class.

For Day 1 Simple Cards I made this Penguin card:

For this card, I used Lawn Fawn Winter Penguin, Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Border and the Lawn Fawn 6×6 paper pad Let’s Bokeh in the Snow.

For Day 3 Classic & Elegant Cards, I tried glitter for the first time :-).

From pattern paper, I die-cut a circle shape, covered it in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. The sentiment is from the stamp set “Ornament Greetings” by Stampendous which I heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I also heat embossed the borders of the card base with gold embossing powder.

For Day 5 Cute & Whimsical Cards I made two cards. The first is the “Holiday Picture”-card:

For this card, I used Science of Love, Trim the Tree, Hats Off to You and the coordinating die for Say Cheese (all by Lawn Fawn). With some masking, I made the picture look as though two birds are in front of the Christmas tree. I used COPIC markers to colour the images; the gold was done with a gold gel pen. To make the photo look a bit withered I added some Antique Linen Distress Ink to the edges of the photo.

The second whimsical card is the “Holiday Elephants”-card:

For this, I used Lawn Fawn’s Winter Gifts, the coordinating die Tag You’re It and the mini stamp set Love You Tons. I made the card look as though it is a present with the gift tag as the focal point. To underline the gift-giving act, I wanted one of the elephants to carry a present.

I originally posted the photos on my old Pinterest page and linked it to the OCC Holiday Style site.

I hope you enjoyed this card! Have a nice day!
