Festive Friday: 2-for-1 Card Duo
Festive Friday: 2-for-1 Card Duo
Welcome back for another Festive Friday!
I’m so excited because not only is today a new Festive Friday challenge, but it’s also my Altenew Educator Level 3 final! This morning, I’m conducting a local class here at my home, and hosting the Altenew Educator coordinators via video conferencing. My projects for today are two of the cards that the class will be making! So, gather some supplies and make them along with us!

So, before we get to the process video, let’s take a look at the challenge – I know you want to play along!
Looking for ideas – here’s a few:
- Come up with something heartfelt and mushy to send to your parents. You know they love that stuff!
- Try out a new watercolor technique you’ve been eyeballing. I have a great one for you today!
- CASE one of the DT projects and add your own twist to our designs. Of course, if you blog about it, we would love for you to mention the Designer as your inspiration for your project. Here’s links to all of the Designers:
