All That Glitters just for Girl Scouts

I was honored to create a card class for a friend's crafty girl scout troop. These 10 year olds wanted to create some Christmas cards that included stamping and embossing.

In looking through my stash, I found some glitter paper and added that to my favorite Christmas paper, City Sidewalks, well it is my favorite for November. Added some White embossing powder, Versamark ink, thin dies, and a few Cricut cuts and some FUN!

These cards are based on workshop that Close To My Heart shared with us (they love to make our job easier). The present is a stand alone thin die (no coordinating stamp set), the ribbon is from Flower Market Cricut cartridge and the wreath is from City Sidewalks digital images.

Don't you love a stamp set that gives you ALL you need to create your project? Very Merry is perfect, it has sentiments for the outside and sayings for the inside -- a complete package! The Joy is great for embossing and there are some images just ready for coloring!!

And to make creating the kits EASY PEASY, I used the White Daisy Cards and Envelope Value Pack (X254), 50 card bases and envelopes for ONLY $14.95!!

Here is the City Sidewalks paper pack that inspired these cards --

Calypso and the Split Panel Card

One of my Rockin' heART team members, Darlene Smyly, taught us how to create a Split Panel card at a recent class. It was so much fun!!

Here is a 4 1/4" x 11" top folding White Daisy card. Fold the card from the top in half at 5 1/2", you can score first before you fold.

Place the fold line on the 2" mark on your trimmer and cut. This will leave you with the 2" x 4 1/4" panel for the top of the split panel.

Take the leftover piece, 3 1/2" x 4 1/4", and cut 2" from the 3 1/2" side.  This will leave you with a 2" x 4 1/4" for the  bottom panel.

The remaining 1 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece may be used for the sentiment piece which will attach the top and bottom panels, which is what I did. I stamped one of the flamingos from the Tickled Pink (C1651) stamp set

I cut a Black cardstock mat for it at 4 1/2" x 1 3/4".

To dress up the card, I cut panels from Calypso (X7210B) pattern paper, my rule of thumb is to cut t…

A friend shared her version of a rocker card and I fell in love. A rocker card starts with circles. The base 5 1/2" circle cut from New England Ivy cardstock. A second 5" circle is cut from pattern paper, here I am using the New England Ivy pattern paper. 

The next pieces are the circles creating a place for the sentiment and embellishments. Here I changed it up a little. The original circles would be 3 3/4" cut from White Daisy covered by a 3 1/2" circle cut from the Beary Christmas poinsettia pattern paper. 
My version…
