Rainbow Christmas Stencil ~ A Very Trendy Holiday 2.0 Card Class Is Open ~ Video

A Very Trendy Holiday 2.0 opens today and I am so excited to share it with all of you!!! Tuesday I showed you the monochromatic version of this card inspired by the Stencil trend in cardmaking.  Clicky to check it out if you missed it.  Today I am back with the rainbow version.

Plus, as promised, I have another video for you.  ***Note, if you are reading this post in an email or reader you may need to go to my blog to view the video below.

I'm linking this up with the Merry Monday challenge.  This week the challenge is to use non-traditional colors.  I think this card fits, don't you.  Merry Monday is also a great resource for anyone wanting to jumpstart your Christmas creativity.

Your card is beautiful. I love the rainbow effect.

I will be sending out about 65 cards. I still need to make about 20 of those!

Your card is a beauty! I'm hoping to send about 30, but I have more to make for co workers! :)

Bonnie said...

A beautiful, bright way to say Merry Christmas, Heather! And it certainly fits the challenge at Merry Monday! Thanks for sharing it with us. I'll be sending 60 - 70 Christmas cards this year. Every year I add a few more to my list.

Your card is so beautiful! I am really in to colourful cards this year! I won't be sending out too many, maybe about 30, but I need to make some for family to send as well. Thanks for the chance to win!

Awesome christmas card, Love it!!!!

Joyce Spear said...

Ohh, Heather! I'm a bright color person, so this card just calls out to me to try myself! I'm so excited that you're offering a chance to win the A Very Trendy Holiday 2.0 class, as I would love to take it but just can't squeeze my budget enough to make it happen. I plan to send about 20 Christmas cards this year, but would ideally like to make more than that to share with my elderly neighbors. Fingers crossed that I will be able to share some REALLY trendy cards this season! Thanks for a chance to win, but even more, Thank you for all you do at StampNation! You're one of the reasons I'm loving it there!
