All of last week I was obsessed with holiday card making thanks to Holiday Card Workshop 2014 at Online Card Classes. I loved watching every video, and I learned something even when the card being created didn’t seem at first like something I’d ever make. I must admit to spending more time watching videos than actually creating, but my mind was spinning with ideas, and I’ve begun to put some into practice with actual projects.

One of the classes focused on tags, which are so much fun to make.

In another class, Jennifer McGuire showed a one-layer window card. Hers used some fancy partial die cutting, which I attempted but wasn’t very successful at, mostly because I just didn’t have dies that were well suited to the technique. But I liked the window idea and put that to use here:

I love that cute Lawn Fawn patterned paper! The sentiment is by Simon Says Stamp, as is the candy cane stripe stamp at the left.

Finally, I was inspired by the white and gold of a card by Debby Hughes on the first day of class, which highlighted easy-to-reproduce cards. Thanks to a few new Lawn Fawn dies I just picked up this morning (Tag, You’re It; Scripty Joy; Stitched Snowflakes), this one would indeed be pretty easy to reproduce.

That glittered gold paper? I picked that up at Joann’s last week as part of a 70% off fall/Halloween paper pad from Die Cuts with a View–a steal, and it has plenty of paper I can use year round.
