I have been taking the Pattern Play Class from Onlinecardclasses.com , I’ve taken a few classes from them and enjoy them very much. If anything it gets my mojo going when I need a kick start! (that and I’m patterned challenged! lol)
I haven’t been doing my homework (I know, I know…BAD SPIKE BAD!) but after Day #3, a few card ideas popped into by head. I highly suggest taking a card class to get those creative juices going, whether it’s a different layout or even learning one new technique. Sometimes it takes looking at things in a different perspective to get you off and running again!
Card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
Patterned paper measures 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
-die cut snowman (can be anything like ornaments, star, etc.) from card base
-adhere patterned paper to the underside
-stamp sentiment in cobalt archival ink
-sprinkle clear embossing powder and heat set
-trace around the snowman with a sparkly pen, I used a baby blue Spica pen.
I was planning to do something similar with another die (which I am still searching high and low for!) but couldn’t wait to do this card when I put this paper and die together in my head! (Do you do that? Mentally put cards together when you’re doing other things, like laundry? lol)
