Christmas Card Class Part 2

I'm excited to show you these two cards today. One is from a set that I just had to have the minute I opened up the catalog but I didn't order it right away. However, as more and more of my customers started ordering it, I knew I had to get it. I'm so glad I did as I love it so much. The other one is using Snow Swirled which I did order right away. I've used the tree a lot already so I wanted to focus on using the other images in the set. I participated in a swap with some fellow demos and got a card very similar to the one I did. I changed up the colors quite a bit and altered the design slightly. One of the main reasons I participate in swaps is to gather ideas from other demonstrators. While I rarely copy a card exactly, I find that they are such a good springboard for ideas. One of my favorite things to do is use their card as a "sketch" and work from there.
