12 Weeks of Christmas – Week 2 with Whimsy & Wonder

Are you ready to make your next batch of Christmas cards? I don’t know how many cards you send out, but I send heaps! My husband tells me that I keep Australia Post in business. It is quite amusing that a Jewish person sends out so many Christmas cards, but I LOVE sending cards, so any excuse will do and it brings joy to the person receiving them , so win-win!

This card uses the some of the elements from the beautiful Whimsy & Wonder Suite. (If you want more inspiration for this suite, place an order by the 19th October and get a tutorial bundle filled with ideas. There is a sneak peek of the projects at the bottom of this post)
You are probably thinking that this looks like a nice card, but wait! There’s more! The magic happens when you open it!

I participate in a number of online events. These are free for my customers and feature a talented group of international demonstrators who each present a project. Global SU Share Fair is every second month, and Woo Hoo Weekend is quarterly. Next month is going to be busy – Share fair is on the 6th November and Woo Hoo Weekend is the 27th. The invitations to join the Woo Hoo Weekend group will be sent out at the beginning of November. This is the card that I demonstrated at the August Weekend. It was using the Blackberry Beauty Suite and will show you how to do the inside of the card.

Here are the Measurements for this card:
Base – 20.9cmx 14.9cm / 51/2″ x 81/4″ Score at 5.2cm /2″ on either side

12 Weeks Of Christmas – Week 1

I find it difficult to believe that we are starting the last quarter of 2021. Even with all the lock downs and craziness which has felt like this year was a repeat of 2020, it seems to have zoomed past! in 12 weeks time, it will be Christmas again. This year I am doing a 12 week count down to Christmas. Every Saturday for the next 3 months, I will share a Christmas idea. There will be a selection of cards, tags, packaging and table decorations. If you want o play along with me, you will have a week to make the projects before the next one comes along

Last weekend we held our bi-monthly event – Global SU Share Fair. If you don’t know what this is, it is an event where I collaborate with other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world and we each do a Facebook live presentation. This month there were 14 presenters all using a different stamp set and providing heaps of inspiration. This was my project.

The measurements for this card are as follows:
Base 21cm x 14.9cm / 81/2″ x 5 1/2″
Arm 10.5 cm x 4.7cm / 41/4″ x 1 7/8″
