Did I tell you I was excited to go to two card events: Christmas X10 (hosted by Dara Peterson and Luci Kirschbaum) and Totally Lovin' Christmas (hosted by Liz Thayer). These two events featured making Christmas cards from this year's Stampin' Up 2015 Holiday mini catalog, plus those Christmas items presented in their annual catalog as well! In addition, Dara & Luci hosted a Christmas Tag class with ten really cute tags, which I fully intend to incorporate into a card design of my making.
I was so far behind starting my Christmas cards this year that I really need that boost get me started and from these three classes did just that. I came away with 20 card designs and 10 tags to incorporate into my own card designs. . .such a big help and so much fun as well! As you know, cardmaking isn't only about the fun of making cards and learning new techniques, but it's a social event as well! You meet such wonderful and fun-loving people, many of whom become fast friends as well.
Oh. . .yes, this post was about presenting a card. . . so let's get to it! This will be card #5 from Dara & Luci's Christmas X 10 event. . .another keeper for sure! A fabulous card with a silver embossed wreath and sequins in the non-traditional more modern coloring of Bermuda Bay, Vanilla, and Silver. . .such a fabulous combination of colors. Again, I really liked this card's design as presented, so I stuck right to its design. Thank you Luci & Dara for this very eye-appealing card!
