It was a hot and fun break for us all.
Here are some of the cards my Dad and I made :
This is just a simple card, coloured with distress ink, and highlighted with icicle stickles.
In the next 2 cards I used a technique I learnt from Hermine Koster at the Art Specially event (in the Netherlands) earlier this year. Start with glossy card, and stamp with Stazon ink. Then use ditress ink or Adiromdak ink over. Finally highlight with white pen and glitter glue.
For the last Christmas card I tried my hand at metal work, using the Ten Second Studio tools to create a frame. I got the technique from Leandra Franich of PaperArtsy, the article was in the July 2009 Craft Stamper magazine. The photo does not really do the metal justice.
