The Fix

This is the best I could figure to do for my smeared card: I ordered three different "Merry Christmas" stamps from Hobby Lobby then when they arrived I stamped each in the only red I have (must get more!) on white cardstock and carefully cut it out so it would fit in the space I had left for it. Adding bling also helped .

Ooops! It smeared!

Oh, no!! I just noticed that the card with the embossed snowflakes and red embossed tree with the words of "Silent Night" is smeared at the bottom! The heat didn't make it to that lower right-hand corner!!! Can I 'fix' it??? Here's what I tried: I very, very carefully removed the white cardstock, wet it diagonally, then using a ruler especially designed to help 'tear' paper and/or cardstock, I disposed of the tree. I then punched out some snowflakes and glued them on. So far, it's ok but it still needs something! Maybe a small "Merry Christmas" stamped in white and embossed?

2012 Last Chance Christmas Card Class

These are the cards we made today at the last chance Christmas card making event for this year with Emily (Donna has moved to north Georgia). We did embossing on four of the cards. The prettiest card, I think, is the "Sending Christmas Wishes" red and white card. The cutest is the gingerbread boys. the quickest was the three trees card. The very hardest, even with written instructions, was the three postage stamp with the star, tree, and ornament, inside the punched out circle trimmed with a contrasting color and tied with the jute twine.
