Here Comes Christmas....

Doesn't it seem that Christmas is coming to the retail stores earlier and earlier every year?  I sure think so.  I saw Christmas items out before Halloween!  Of course, I can't really complain since I held my annual Christmas Card Class in October this year.  With being gone for a couple weeks in November, I had to plan ahead.
Were you there?  If not, why not?  We had a great time and everyone got an early start on their Christmas cards.  Here's the first of five cards that everyone made.  Everyone was able to choose how many of sets they wanted to make.  Most made 2 or 3 sets, leaving with 10 or 15 cards made but my cousin ordered 20 kits!  That's right - 100 cards!  Unfortunately she wasn't able to attend the class and has to make her cards over Thanksgiving.
I want to say "thank you" to a very talented artist on Splitcoaststampers for this card which I CASE'd.

 Here's what you will need to make this card:
  • Midnight Muse, Whisper White & Baja Breeze cardstock
  • Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit and Baja Breeze classic ink
  • Ornament Keepsakes and More Merry Messages stamp sets
  • Ornament Framelits
  • Summer Starfruit Satin Ribbon
  • 1" Circle punch
  • Festive & Essentials Paper Piercing Packs
  • Rhinestones
Here's the inside of the card.  If you want to make this card, the only recommendation I would make is that you do the piercing for the ornament in the center of the front of the card and stamp "Merry Christmas" before stamping the small ornaments.  This helps with making sure you locate them where they look best.

Forever Stampin',
