Okay, so this week is my Christmas Card Workshop which I am SOOO excited about! We are making 50 cards (thank you Antoinette Herrin for your awesome template) for only $30!!! We are meeting at this beautiful little Inn called The Timbers Inn; think: Rustic Cabin and you've got it! It is going to be such a nice evening getaway my girls will never want to go home! So I just had to make them some equally memorable goodies and prizes!
lenge is Embossing, so naturally I had to use some embossing technique for my card box. I love using embossing for really special occasions like Weddings, Anniversaries and Christmas! It is such a pretty and elegant look.
Supplies are all Close to My Heart and available to purchase at my online store unless otherwise stated:
My Creations Recipe Box,
Mistletoe Level 2 paper,
Cranberry grosgrain ribbon,
My Acrylix St. Nick,
Dimensional Elements On Target,
Cranberry and Cocoa ink,
Clear Embossing Powder,
Martha Stewart Border Punch
For the goodies I finally tried a project that has been in my idea binder for a while! I stamped on the top of little votive candles and I just LOVE the way it came out. It is so simple I don't know why I didn't try it sooner! You just use a circle punch to punch out the tissue paper (I backed my tissue paper with cardstock so it would punch out cleaner), stamp your desired small image onto tissue paper, punch a small hole in middle for wick to fit through, slip it on top of the candle and melt the wax slightly using your heat embossing tool to make the tissue paper "adhere" to the candle! Easy peasy-lemon squeasy! I then used a strip of B&T (background and texture) paper to go around the outside of the candle for a more finished look. Voila! Goodie Gifts for my Guests! I hope they lo
ve them as much as I do!
