Need a "Headstart on the Holidays"????


Do you enjoy making holiday cards but need some quick and easy ideas? Or perhaps a little "kick start" for this year's Christmas cards? This card is an easy option and coincidentally, it's one of the six cards which we'll do at my Headstart on the Holidays class coming up later this month.
Since O'Fallon, IL is in the metro St. Louis, MO area cardinals are always a popular theme and this Stampin' UP! set, A Flower For All Seasons makes a cute little holiday card. I especially like the Real Red striped grosgrain ribbon, it adds just the right touch! (full details below). The class fee is $15 prepaid for six handmade cards with envelopes but I do offer some discounts for those who either bring a friend new to my classes or place a minimum order at the class.
This class will be offered on Friday, Sept 26th (afternoon and evening options) as well as Saturday, Sept 27th (afternoon only), for more details on all of my classes and events, please follow this link http://www.janhoyt.stampinup.net/ to my demo homepage then click on the class calendar page.
While you are there, don't miss the exciting new online ordering feature available beginning TODAY on the Stampin' UP! website by clicking the "Order" button on the top right of the screen on my demo homepage. Now you can even shop for new stamps in your PJ's if you want!
Card Details:
Stamps: A Flower For All Seasons, Holidays and Wishes, Sanded (background)
Ink: Basic Grey classic ink and reinker, Kiwi Kiss classic ink and reinker.
Cardstock: Basic Black, Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red and Glossy White.
Accessories: 1 3/8th inch square punch, scallop edge punch, blender pen, Real Red Striped Grosgrain ribbon, White Signo Gel Pen, Ruby Red Stampin' Write marker.
Tips: I used the blender pen and ink refills to color in the flower leaves and flower pot and the Ruby Red marker to color in the poinsettia petals and the cardinal. Amazing how well it works with the Real Red ribbon and Riding Hood Red cardstock!

Hi Jan

Im from SCS bloggers #4. Great card. Im so jealous we dont have the scallop edge in Oz so the corner rounder has to do. I love the faux maybe? little paper piercing holes aswel.

I was just thinking the same thing as Ti- the sanded background really looks good on this card! Hmmmm- I think I have the sanded background stamp (isn't it horrible when you can't remember what stamp sets you have because you hoard and have so many? blush)- I'm gonna go check! TFS
