Training Day with Monica Gale.
Yesterday Monica gave some of us in the Wirral a Training Day. We started off with a Shaker Card using the Reindeer from the Color Me Christmas Stamp Set. This would be the ideal set for a young person who enjoys colouring. Champagne Glass Glitter was used in the Shaker Frame. Monica said this is made out of crushed Christmas Decorations! I would not want to make my own as I would probably not crush the pieces small enough and might cut myself. Other products used include the Gold Card from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue, some of the Season Of Style Designer Series Paper Stack and the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
For the next card we first stamped a background with the large Woodgrain Stamp on to Pool Party Card Stock. We stamped the Words from O Holy Night Stamp Set in Whisper White on to Crumbcake Card Stock. Monica then showed us the easy way to tie a double bow.Can you see the hints of glimmer Card? It was finished off with one of the gorgeous Frosted Finishes Embellishments.
Our last project before lunch was a holder for chocolate or a sachet of Drinking Chocolate. We used the Color Me Christmas Stamp Set again and coloured it in using a Blender Pen. We put some of the Season of Style Designer Washi Tape on a strip of Whisper White Card Stock and finished it off with a bow made out of the Cherry Cobbler 1 inch Stitched Edge Grosgrain Ribbon.
