BARGELLO CHRISTMAS CARDS...
Next Wednesday, the Mothers Class will be revisiting the Bargello technique which they learned last year and requested that we do again. (See Splitcoast Stampers for this technique.)
After cutting all the pieces and mounting them on a piece of white cardstock, we'll run it through the Cuttlebug with the Christmas Tree die. Using the negative space shown on this first card, we'll cut some trees from Pear Pizzaz cs to place in the opening. Students will have the choice of taping it to lie flat or using dimensionals to raise it above the background. After gluing sequins, a star and the greeting to the front of the card, we'll go to the second card.
I just love the way this came together so that none of the bargello panel was wasted.
SPECIAL NOTE: Jackie will be missing some classes because of being in the hospital. Instead of heading for a trip to Oregon to see her new grandchild as planned, she had to have emergency surgery to remove a blockage in her intestines. She was in a lot of pain and is still recovering. We're hoping she'll be out of ICU soon. Please keep her in your prayers.
