Holiday Card Workshop - Day One
Holiday Card Workshop with Jennifer McGuire, Kristina Werner and other guest teachers at Onlinecardclasses.com. For the first card, Jennifer taught us how to mass produce stamped cards using a Fiskars Stamp Press. Unfortunately, I haven't purchased one of those toys but I do have a sheet of acrylic from my ancient Inkadinkado Stamp Corner. So I had to improvise. I used stamps from my stash which I can't identify right now. The cards shown above use a masking technique which leaves the center strip clear for stamping a sentiment. I think it creates a striking image. There are also scored horizontal lines in the middle section which don't show in this photo but do provide another layer of texture. I went with non-traditional colors for my first Holiday card of the year. Thanks for looking.
