Christmas Cards by Claire 2012

Half the ladies at our retreat did not craft on the first night.  By the time supper was finished, it was somewhat late.  Claire was one.  On day 2, she began creating her bits for her cards, but still had nothing finished for us to ooo and aaah over before we stopped working on our projects to take the class and then have dinner.

By the end of the night, though, there was an EXPLOSION of cards!  She had transformed those bits into 35 finished cards!  Her cards were of two styles: an embossed card and a joy fold card.

The embossed card uses a Stampin' Up! flower folder and a Stampin' Up! Christmas sentiment.  The poinsettia is a dimensional embellishment.  On the bear card, Claire used Twinkling H2Os on its little nose.  Our Stampin' Up! demonstrator even remarked she wanted to hire Claire to make her Christmas cards!

Good job Claire.  I'm jealous of your productivity!  I hope those who receive your handmade cards appreciate the time and dedication that went in to them.
