Craft class - 29th November 2008

This was the last class for 2008 for the paper crafters. We had a selection of projects on offer today -thanks to Brenda - from a magnificent car made using an Arty Farty template, to a selection of Christmas cards.
This card was made from Cream card stock, matted and layered with gold card, and a piece of cream card embossed with the Christmas tree from Cuttlebug.

The tree was highlighted with glue (blue glue that dries white in a pen is best to use) and then glittered.

A border peel-off was used around the edge of the gold card.

A sentiment was put along the bottom of the card to highlight the effect.

The other card was made in two shades - using gold and silver card. An A6 white card was used as a base, and fancy metallic gold or silver card was used as the bottom layer, edged with peel-off.

The Christmas trees elements on the cards were made by sticking a peel-off onto acetate and colouring with permanent marker pen. They were then cut out and stuck on white glitter card, layered onto the base gold/silver card. The stars on the top were gems stuck on with glue. The small sentiment finished off the card.

Advanced beading - 8th November 2008

Todays project was a charming (if complicated!) bracelet.

This finished example was done in a gold and a bronze colour, but others were done in shades of pink, purple and blue, as you can see from the picture below, where you can see a bracelet in progress.

There is no class in December for the advanced beaders, but a sneaky preview of the project for January is here: a lovely butterfly necklace!
