Cards For Day 4 - Holiday Card Workshop

Hi there!

I've got a quick post for you tonight. I need to get to bed earlier because I'm trying to fight off a cold and cough I feel coming on - yuk! We are also bracing for a big winter storm headed our way. We're suppose to get more than a foot of snow Monday and Tuesday - bigger YUK! Unfortunately, I also have to drive to work and back at the heaviest times of the storm on Monday. Not looking forward to that AT ALL!

I do have a couple of cards to share. They were both created for day 4 of the online card class, Holiday Card Workshop.

This first one is a take on Jennifer McGuire's fun, partial die-cutting technique.



Such a fun card to make! Here's a close-up.



And my second card is a take on Laura Bassen's beautiful card, using lots of masking.




Sorry for not sharing links to products used. I'm too tired, so if you have any questions, please ask in a comment below and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

I'm hoping to be back in a couple days with a card or two from days 5 and 6 of class. That is, if I feel well enough to create and if I make it through all that snow! Lol!

Thanks for the visit! ♥

Your cards are so nice, Barb, as always! I love the tree one.

I thought of you when I saw the weather report yesterday. Sound horrific; I detest driving in snow. Dress warmly and be safe!!

You did such an amazing job on both techniques, Barb! Your Santa is adorable and your snowy winter scene is gorgeous...Two beautiful cards!

I sure hope you're feeling better after a good nights' rest, and that you managed to get to work safe and sound ~ (Hugs)!!!

Both cards are beautiful Barb! I love the little santa and snow made with embossing paste is 'good snow' isn't it?!

AWESOME class work, Barb! I love the use of partial die cut for Santa! The masking on the 2nd one is superb!

Virginia Lu said...

And yeah...Dr. John told me earlier that you guys (and lucky us, too) are getting snow and it's coming BIG way! (yuck). Take good care and get rested, be well, Barb!

Laura Norris said...

I LOVE your Santa card! What a great sentiment for it too. Hope you are feeling better and the snow wasn't too crazy.

Cat Craig said...

Both cards are great Barb, love that aperture shape. Stay safe and keep hydrated. Hope you are able to fight off the cold. Battling bad weather and feeling unwell are a lousy combo.

Beautiful cards. I enjoyed watching the videos and reading the tutorials but haven't had time to try much out. Your cards are so delightful Barb Hope the cold and cough haven't taken hold and the snow is not as bad as predicted.

Hi Barb! First I like to say that I love your festive blog head! And than a thank you for sharing what you learned in class. Now I read it I wish I would have subscribed too myself. Your first card is adorable! I tried partial diecutting, but had no succes at all. I also like to say that your wobble snowman card is SO nice! Hope you are feeling well again, and survived the winter storm :) We got some sunny autumn days wich I am very gratefull for!
