I am really enjoying the Online Card Classes Holiday Workshop 2014! Are you taking it too? You can sign up any time and you get lifetime access to the videos and PDF's of each card.
Day 4 of class was about one layer cards. Definitely postal friendly which is good when you are mailing out a bunch of cards for the Holidays! I liked Julie Ebersole's card where she used a mask and created a fun 'snowy' dimension around the image. I tried to duplicate that with the word JOY instead of a solid image like she had. When I pulled off the mask, there just wasn't enough definition around the letters that you could tell what it said. But I still liked the 'snowy' effect, so I salvaged the card by die cutting the word from some shiny red paper and popping it up with some foam tape. Not exactly the 'masking' look that she had, but I like it nonetheless. I will have to try her technique with a different die cut to see if I can get that cool result!
Thanks for stopping by!
