I had a lovely afternoon some weeks ago with a couple of ladies from my work making cards to donate for Red Cross's Christmas Card Campaign. None of my co-workers craft so I had prepared some example cards for ideas for stamping and layout. The girls got very creative and all and all we got about 20 cards made.
Here are the cards I made as examples... I wanted to make a really simple design everyone would feel comfortable with... And we also discussed some basic stamping and embellishing issues. The vintage cards are as simple as it gets and very fast to make -I think those took under 10 minutes per card when I made them. Choosing the image, paper, throwing in a doily, some minor embellies and ribbon -easy peasy!
And here is a couple of the pretty cards the ladies from my work made. I loved their creative ideas!
Speaking of Christmas cards, have you noticed I'm having Christmas card challenges here in my blog? The first challenge -focus on stamping- is here and the second challenge -cards out of scraps/old stash- is here. There's a change to win a Stamplorations stamp set in both challenges and they run until the Christmas Eve. Do join us! xxx
