October was a busy month. I went to another Christmas cardmaking event, Christmas X10, which was hosted by two great ladies and Stampin' Up demonstrators, Dara Peterson and Luci Kirchenbaum. This is the first time I have been invited to one of their annual events, and I was thrilled with the ten card designs presented by these two wonderful ladies. What a great and fun way to teach and demonstrator Stampin' Up products. . .a partnership where everything is shared. I am sure these two have a great time together. I met several new cardmaking ladies who love to craft as much as I do. It surely was a fun-filled and enjoyable event.
Our first card was made from products featured in the annual catalog rather than the new 2015 Holiday mini catalog. I so loved this card's design that in making my own card, I stuck to an exact replica of the class sample. The cute little punch art angel and the tree were formed by using the Tree punch, and the angel's wings were formed by using the smaller round-winged butterfly from the Bold Butterfly framelit die set. This was such a lovely card, presented in a beautifully simplistic style. Please take a peek. . .you'll like what you see!
