Christmas Cards Using Mocha Morning Specialty Designer Series Paper

When I first saw this paper I thought that it would make very sophisticated Christmas cards. They are certainly not the usual red and green variety. There are 7 in the series. Which ones will you make?
This Tri Shutter Card (it's not really hard but it does take time) is one of my favourites.

The flocked DSP reminds me of that great wallpaper some of us had many years ago (when was that) but hey didn't we just love it?

I think that The Snow Swirled Set really works well and I know that many of you bought it last year which will leave you more money to get the Pennant stamps and punch. I know we used it in the last lesson but I have come up with more uses including party hats, ice creams and trees besides the pennant itself.

Lesson 43 dates are Sept 27, 27, Oct, 4, 5 and 9.

Lesson 42 Two New Stamp Sets

Every lesson from now until Christmas will involve some Christmas Cards or Tags. I have used the Tags Til Christmas Set and have designed a Tag Wallet, Tag Book and 2 Cards. Here is a sample.

Another new set is called Pennants Parade and it has a coordinating punch. Here are two samples.

Clearly for You is not a new set but it should appeal to those who love the "pretty vintage" style of stamping.

Lesson dates are September 13, 14, 18, 20 and 21.
