Last Saturday I had a 10 for $20 card class here at my house. Class attendees were able to make two of each card design and could personalize them as they wished with different sayings. Everyone said they really enjoyed the class - and it's a great way to stock up on cards they need for the upcoming months!
Most of the cards are pretty simple, so I'll just let you know the main items that we used. This first one uses Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive with the Delicate Doilies stamp set and the Finial Press textured embossing folder. I used the Curly Cute set for my saying on this one.
Did you know an easy way to get that "pennant" cut on the side? Use a square punch to cut the banner edge on the Whisper White cardstock. Just insert your cardstock into one of the points of the square and punch. Then when you attach it to your color, just follow the edges to cut that to match. It's so much easier than trying to cut with your scissors. I don't know about you, but I usually manage to cut one side longer than the other, and then when I keep trying to even them out, I usually cut it too short! (I guess that's why I'm not a hair stylist like my daughter.)
The second card uses the Day of Gratitude stamp set. The main image was inked with Tangerine Tango and then rock-n-rolled on Cherry Cobbler. The ribbon is Cherry Cobbler 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain with a 5/8" Jumbo Brad in the center. No tying required for this bow! And look, there's that Curly Cute stamp set again! (Can you tell I like it?)
The next card was a monochromatic card, but I had two colors for everyone. They both use the same basic supplies. The stamps used were Best Friends Forever and Petite Pairs. The Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch was used between the two DSP designs. The first one was made with all Crumb Cake - 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon, Crumb Cake cardstock, and Neutrals Collection Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack.
And this card is exactly the same except the color is Always Artichoke - 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon, Always Artichoke cardstock, and the Regals Collection Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack. See how just changing up the color on a card can make it look different?
Stay tuned because I have the rest of the cards from this class that I'll show you tomorrow (assuming that Blogger will behave. It's acting up right now so I hope I get THIS to post!) This hasn't been my best week with my computer and internet...
Until next time...
