Holiday Card Workshop Days 1 and 2

Hello everyone! How are you today? I am enjoying Online Card Class's Holiday Card Workshop 2014! Can't believe a whole year has passed since I took the last class for the Holidays!

Day 1 was all about easy-to-duplicate cards. When day 2 came around, which was about interactive cards, I realized I could easily duplicate this card for both lessons. It's a great way to combine two days worth of homework into one card.  :)

I used images and a sentiment from Stephanie Barnard's Stamps of Life. The center circle is actually a die cut that comes out. I layered the piece several times and covered the back since it's meant to be used as an ornament, then I punched a hole at the top and added a piece of Baker's Twine so it would hang easily. The sentiment is heat embossed onto a piece of vellum that's wrapped around the cardstock. This will hold the ornament in place. I colored the image with Copic markers. I really enjoy working with this flexible glitter paper by DCWV. It's quite beautiful and does NOT get glitter everywhere. I also added glitter from a Wink of Stella to the image.

Thank you for stopping by today! I appreciate your visits and comments very much, and if you're in class, I'll see you there!


  1. The glitter is fabulous! I'm hoping to work through the lessons this weekend!

  2. Very cute Sharon. Aren't these type of cards easy to make and so adorable.

  3. Great card Sharon! Love that cute snowman. Thanks for leaving me some blog love too! It is fun to 'see' the same people in class again!!

  4. Well done, Jennifer would be very proud of you if she saw this!! Love the glitter and the snowman on the ornament. I haven't started my homework yet but I'm dying to try this one out!! Looks amazing.

  5. This is a great idea!!! Make a flat ornament and stick it on the front so the recipient can have a keepsake. You always inspire me, but this is GENIUS!!!!! And I love that you used vellum for the band to hold the ornament. LOVE IT!!!!! Oh, and I'm jealous that you are taking that class. Barb Campbell is too - I just don't have the time. Maybe next year????? LOL!

  6. I love a "two-fer", a card, AND, an ornament!!!
    Great job!!!
