May Stack-A-Stash Cards

You will be creating two of each card design during May's Stack-A-Stash class.  The Christmas card is cut using a Sizzix die that cuts and scores for a unique card design.  Using Spellbinder dies, glittered specialty paper, bling and Just-Rite stamps you will complete the embellishing for a quick and easy card!  If you feel confident in your inking skills, a light touch of Chipped Sapphire can be used to enhance this card.
The card featuring the clock die set from Spellbinders and coordinating stamp set from Unity Stamps can be used for a variety of occasions.  The sentiment stamped inside reads "Every moment in time is a gift and a blessing."  We will be using Craft-t Metallic Rub-ons to enhace the embossing on the clock and our paper distressors and Antique Linen as well as Brushed Corduroy Distress Inks.

What is Stack-A-Stash? Are you one of those people who, come November, are completely stressed out because Christmas is coming and you haven't even contemplated starting your Christmas cards? How about those last minute Birthday cards, do you have spares on hand?

Once a month we will be offering Stack A Stash, each month hosted by a different instructor. In these classes we will be making easy cards that can be adapted to any paper or sentiments.
These classes will be shorter, so that busy people will have a better chance of fitting them into their schedules. The class will always be the last Sunday of each month, so you can know well ahead of time when the classes will be offered. We will always do one Christmas card, and one all occasion card, but will do TWO of each design for a total of 4 cards per class.
