Brrrr! It's cold and only going to get colder! A high of 34 forecasted for Tuesday and the low a bone-chilling 24. Yes, it's colder elsewhere, but it's Portland and it doesn't get this cold in November!
Here are my 3 snow inspired holiday cards...without using Christmas or red and green combos (it was challenging!)
My first card uses that trendy turquoise/aqua color that has been popping up lately. I layered a chipboard glittery adhesive snowflake with a glittered button and silver thread. I like this card, but it is bulky...not so great for mailing. A good card to tuck inside a gift basket for your neighbor or friend.
This card has green, I admit, but it is olive and I paired it with brown for a more rustic feel. The snowflakes have a little light olive "bling" in the centers, but I bought a pack of red gems, for those that *need* to add red. ;)
And finally, the last card has stamped snowflakes and a punched snowflake raised with foam tape. Inside there is white paper with a decorative border and another snowflake, just for fun!
Cost for the the Snow Card Kit is $10. The kit comes with color instructions and all materials prepared for you to make 3 cards. FREE silver ink pad for each student. In-person Portland class is Nov 30th noon-1 PM.
**Added Nov. 22: Only ONE kit left! Wow, they're going fast!**
Enjoy...and stay warm!
