December Workshop...

Hi all,

Hope your weekend is going well. Well, I had my last workshop for this year, and I think the ladies enjoyed making a card with a difference :) We made a stair step card which I cased by Ellen (KEA2004) from SCS, which was originally cased by Julie. Note: I changed the dimensions from the original template, so that it would fit in our UK standard sized envelope. I enjoyed creating this card using most of the stamps from Season of Joy and I look forward to making more of these in the near future.

Next, the ladies made a Peek A Boo Box using the Love You Much stamp set that I received as Blog Candy in October to celebrate the release of the new Idea Book & Catalogue. We used a wheel to run over five of the six faces of the cube, and used a number of punches to create the peep hole and the topper.
