Christmas Card Workshop 2013

One of my favorite events of the year is my Christmas card workshop!  It is such a fun day to ring in the season with my stamping friends by making beautiful cards to send to our loved ones!  I had a total blast with everyone over the last several days as we drank hot cocoa, listened to Christmas music, and stamped our Christmas cards.  Below are the cards we made for this year's workshop.


Here's Card No. 1 of my Christmas card workshop.  Anything that is white on white or vanilla on vanilla will always be my favorite!  I love the crisp cleanness of this noel card.  Some of my stamping friends used a silver glimmer star or a red glimmer star - and it was fabulous that way, too!  I have no idea who originally designed this card.  The recipe is below.  All supplies used and shown are from Stampin' Up! - the greatest rubber stamp company in the world!
